Neville In Tomorrow’s Kit

Gary NevilleManchester United take on Manchester City tomorrow, in a game where the Busby Babes will be remembered.

Both United and City will be playing in a kit without any logos or sponsorship, as a sign of respect for those who lost their lives 50 years ago.

“The sincere thanks of the Club go to AIG and Nike for their wholehearted backing for the kit change, and to the Premier League for allowing us to mark the event in a unique way,” said David Gill.

    Any idea if it will be names + numbers on the backs or just the numbers?

  2. Eddie says:

    Its just like last seasons kit, just without Nike, AIG and the Emblem.

  3. Eddie says:

    Just the numbers.

    It’s very nice, a real nice touch. No AIG either, you must love it too!!??

  5. Tom F says:

    Numbers 1 to 16 too, no squad numbers. Also, I think the city shirts have their crests on them. Non?

    I think it’s fitting that the pictures are of Gary Neville, Giggs, Scholes and Brown, all graduates of United’s youth setup. No Ronaldo or Rooney. They’re showing that this occasion is a sign of respect to former players of Manchester United Football Club, not the marketing franchise of today. Well done United.

    Loved the kit.

    Wonder who the brave soul was who asked Nev to return the kit after modelling it, since he wasn’t going to be involved in the match?

    Nah. Probably everyone uninvolved got one, without numbers, as a momento.
