Australian TV presenter and former rugby league player Beau Ryan proved a popular and good-natured host. the iconic MCG.

United legends Bryan Robson and Andy Cole, both club ambassadors, were also present at the launch along with former kitman Albert Morgan.

The new away stripes are said to be inspired by United’s classic white kit and feature three red and black Adidas stripes and a geometrically shaped V-neck. The helix pattern, which is woven into the fabric of the jersey, is there to represent the three pillars of the club’s philosophy: youth, courage and success.

Fans are certainly hoping to see more next season.

While Fernandes and co. were busy entertaining the masses in Federation Square, a more intimate affair was happening across Melbourne at the Marriott Docklands hotel, where many of United’s non-playing and coaching staff are staying.

United captain Harry Maguire and striker Anthony Martial were among eight players to take part in two separate Q&A sessions with around 30 fans from United supporters’ clubs in Brisbane, Perth and New South Wales.

The biggest cheers came when Maguire briefly filmed the supporters at the end singing his song while a question about who the players want to beat next season the most was met with boisterous approval from the assembled crowd. Maguire and fellow defenders Alex Telles and Ethan Laird all opted for Liverpool while goalkeeper Matej Kovar chose Manchester City.

Maguire spoke as candidly as he did eloquently about his struggles last season and his determination to turn things around as well as the demands new manager Erik ten Hag is placing on the players.

The England defender also relived his penalty in England’s shootout loss to Italy in the Euro 2020 final last summer and suggested, although it’s impossible to replicate such an environment pressure cooker in training, England needed to continue to improve by 12 yards with the World Cup on the horizon.

United’s non-playing staff were heading to a big night out in Melbourne’s St Kilda area on Saturday night, with everyone at the club off on Sunday. Some will spend their time watching local Australian rules football team Essendon take on the Gold Coast Suns at Marvel Stadium and others plan to head to AAMI Park to watch rugby league team Melbourne Storm take on the Raiders from Canberra.
