Leaked Manchester United fourth kit gets slaughtered by fans

Jack O'Toole

A leopardskin inspired Manchester United kit has been largely ridiculed with the kit reportedly set to be used in FIFA 19.

Leaked by Footy Headlines, the kit is said to be one of four new digital Adidas jerseys that will feature on the game with Juventus, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid jerseys also set to be added to the popular football game.

However, Footyheadlines report that the jersey may also be available to buy in limited quantities, and while Manchester United are the highest earning football club in the world, there doesn’t seem to be a huge demand among the club’s supporters.

EA Sports partnered with Adidas last year to release four digitally designed kits from Manchester United, Juventus, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid for FIFA 18’s Ultimate Team game mode, with the kit available to buy in game.

It is estimated that the Ultimate Team game mode is worth about $800 million to EA. By 2021, Forbes expect FIFA’s annual unit sales to exceed 20 million, and bring in more than $3 billion annually for EA with a lot of this money stemming from in-game purchases and other services.
