Premier League champions Manchester City have kept it sleek and simple with their new home kit, which Nike revealed this morning.
The classy all-blue strip is designed to embody City’s pioneering spirit of innovation, which will be best represented by the club’s new state-of-the-art City Football Academy which is being built directly adjacent to Etihad Stadium and will be opened later this year. Boasting 16 pitches and even a mini-stadium with a capacity of 7,000, which will provide the home for City’s Elite Development Squad, Manchester City Women’s Football Club and Academy youth sides.
The shirt itself is designed around City’s traditional sky blue, with dark blue high cuffs and a constructed V-neck collar with a sky blue triangle beneath it. Inside the back of the neck features a dark blue pennant tab with the bold statement “We are City” in laser blue.
The new home shorts are field blue with a thin dark blue stripe along each side, while the new home socks are field blue with a dark blue band at the top, and a wide dark blue tonal stripe on the back.
