2017/18 Manchester City home kit unveiled

Wed 31st May 2017 | Marketing & PR

One of Manchester City’s most loved strips has inspired the design of the new 2017/18 home kit.

The latest instalment features a round neck blue shirt with a white trim, white shorts and maroon-banded socks, just as it did 50 years ago when Joe Mercer’s Blues were crowned champions of England for the 1967/68 season.

Evoking memories of the kit that Club legends Colin Bell, Francis Lee and Mike Summerbee wore with such distinction, the Nike Vapor kit is given a modern twist with its innovative Aeroswift technology.

Pep Guardiola’s men will benefit from a strip which enhances their performance, with a shirt and shorts that expand when moving to maximise ventilation and socks which feature Nike Grip technology for improved connection between foot and boot.

The front of the shirt continues to showcase the Club's principal partner, Etihad Airways, but for the first time Nexen Tire will appear on the left sleeve for all Premier League fixtures. 

Leroy Sane is hoping the current crop of City stars can emulate their 1967/68 predecessors and create equally fond memories for fans when wearing this new kit.

“I’ve loved my first season with City,” said the winger.

“We work hard to play fast, exciting and attacking football and we’re looking forward to creating winning moments for our fans.”

The honour of first wearing the kit will go to Manchester City Women, who will sport the new look in the FA WSL Spring Series game against Sunderland this evening.

And after lifting three trophies during the previous campaign, Steph Houghton is eyeing another successful season in the Club’s new attire.

The City skipper added: “We are continuing to build an exciting project here at Manchester City and want to keep achieving success, blending our emerging talent with our more experienced players.”

The 2017/18 Manchester City home kit is on sale now online at mancity.com/shop and in store at the Etihad Stadium City Store.
