Manchester United confirm that new away kit will be a first for the club
Manchester United's new away kit will be available to buy on Tuesday morning.
United have confirmed that the club's new away strip will represent a striking departure from the blue and red number from last season.
The club announced that they would be introducing a pink away kit for the 2018/19 campaign in the programme notes for Monday's clash with Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford.

The new kit is a tribute to the pages of The Football Pink newspaper, a publication created by the Manchester Evening News which was massively popular among supporters in Manchester before its closure in 2007.
"Its legacy endures and this season The Pink rides again," reads the front page of programme. "Not just in the hearts and minds of the fans, but on the backs of their heroes too."
It will be the first time in the club's history that a pink shirt will be worn by players and supporters will be able to get their hands on it on Tuesday morning at the adidas store on Manchester's Market Street.
Reliable football kit website FootyHeadlines.com gave us the first glimpse of the design earlier this summer, revealing that United would accompany the pink shirt and socks with black shorts for the season ahead.
