This site was originally conceived by Paul Nagel and Tim Ashmore and launched in October 2009. Since then Tommy Nielsen and Daniel Gellatley have joined the team.
Our research is on-going and we appreciate any contributions that help in our aim to provide the definitive online guide to United's kits. The site is constantly updated with information from a host of regular contributors.
This site is free and will always remain so. We do not accept advertising but we are willing to exchange links from sites with similar interests.

All of the kits we feature have been extensively researched and we are confident of their authenticity.
Where we have been unable to find contemporary evidence we have made assumptions and these are noted in the text.
We originally used photographs as evidence for the kits we feature, but received a substantial demand from Associated Sports Photography, who run the sporting-heroes.net website, for the use of several images.
It was never our intention to infringe copyright and had asked copyright holders to contact us if we had inadvertently done so, and we would remove the images immediately. Unfortunately this was not sufficient for ASP who aggressively pursued their claim.
We appealed for donations to meet ASP's demand and are extremely grateful to all those who have donated - they have helped keep unitedkits.com on line.
We are still some way short of the total we have had to pay ASP so if you are able to make a donation, however small, we'd be very appreciative. Any donation will be help keep the site going.
As soon as the total has been reached we will remove the donate buttons.
Tim has designed a new wallpaper to mark United's 20th Championship and it is available as a free download.
Tim has also been talking with Mark Wylie at United's Museum and we have corrected our earlier update on United's kit worn in the first game at Old Trafford against Liverpool in 1909/10. United DID wear their normal home kit in this match.
Finally Sean Moran, quickly becoming our resident Seventies expert, has identified several more of the games which we had been missing United's kit, including new change kit variants from 1972/73 and 1979/80, as well as several corrections to our earlier identifications. He's also found a photo from Martin Buchan's testimonial that's allowed Daniel to have a stab at the shirt numbers for that game.

Sean Moran has been scouring YouTube for some of the missing kits from the Seventies. He's identified a new variant worn at Newcastle in 1971/72 as well as ending the mystery of United's all-green kit supposedly worn in John Whelan's testimonial in 1968.
The kit worn by United in Stan Ternent's Testimonial in August 2004 has been added to the 2004/05 page. We have been unable to confirm if the shirt number included the Premier League branding or not. If you can help please contact us.
