This is purely rumoured material. There is nothing official about a green and gold shirt launch, but speculation has began…
Apparently Adidas are in the process of designing a green and gold Manchester United jersey for fans to purchase just in time for Christmas.
The jersey in question will be available only to fans – and the players won’t be wearing it – so they’ve seemingly decided to cash in on the green and gold movement.
Last season, green and gold scarves were twirling during games, after the 10-year anniversary of their first appearance as anti-Glazer memorabilia.
But what kind of marketing are we seeing here? The team behind this concept must be sitting with shit-in-mouth grins across their faces knowing how much money they could make from this, on the back of a passionate fan movement that would become completely redundant by people willing to buy the shirt pictured below.
🗞 It is rumoured that Adidas are planning on releasing a special edition #mufc kit in December, which will be a remake of the 1994 third kit. The kit will not be worn by players, but would be available to purchase, much like last season's 1992 away kit remake. [IG: kit_avenue] pic.twitter.com/hrUwrimkeV

Something green and gold produced by Adidas or Manchester United won’t help our fight against the Glazers.
What a waste of money/cloth these shirts are if they turn out to be real.
