manchester united t-shirts man utd merchandise manchester utd supporters clubs united songs & chants Man Utd Shirts 1970-1979 The 1970's kits were all about big floppy collars, to go with the long hair and huge sideburns. In 1972, fans could finally purchase their own replica shirts at the club souvenir shop. The fashion was basic, but there were a few surprises along the way. One unusual move was United's third kit in 1972-73 being yellow with a blue collar. The club also changed their kit manufacture in 1975, from Umbro to Admiral. The change over saw stripes appear on new kits - on the collars, arms and even down the side of the white away kit. United's partnership with Admiral only lasted five years as Adidas took over as we headed into the 1980's. A couple of the Admiral tops have been recreated and are popular retro tops you can still order online today. On this page you can find every United shirt worn between 1970 to 1979.

A special kit was made for FA Cup matches commemorating the Queen's Jubilee year. A picture of the FA Cup and the words ' Silver Jubilee 1977' were embroidered below the club crest. United went all the way in the competiton, beating Liverpool 2-1 in the final and preventing them from becoming the first team to win the Treble.

An interesting change to the white and black away kit; the United club badge and Admiral logos both swapped positions and the words 'FA Charity Shield 1977' were placed below the United crest, which was no longer on a red circular background. The game finished 0-0.

1978-1979 - Manchester United home shirt

The 1978-79 season marked 100 years of Manchester United. To commemorate the landmark, Admiral produced a special kit with thicker white stripes on the sleeves. The club badge was adjusted to include the dates 1878 and 1978 and was reproduced without the white background. The words 'Manchester United Football Club' were also replaced with 'Manchester United Centenary'. The white away kit was also altered with the new badge. United appeared in the 1979 FA Cup Final, losing 3-2 to Arsenal, in the red shirt with 'Wembley 1979' embroidered below the Centenary badge.

1977-1980 - Manchester United home shirt

The 1979-80 season was an interesting one. United narowly missed out on the Championship and wore a few different kits in the process. It was almost as if Admiral had ran out of ideas. United wore the classic kit 70's jersey for some games, the 1978 Centenary kit for others and most bizaarely, the ill-fated 1979 FA Cup Final shirt for others (including non- cup games).
