‘Not A Fan, Too Many Colours’ ’10/10′ Fans Give Their Verdict As Aguero Model’s City’s New Away Kit

Manchester City have released their new away shirt for the upcoming season.

It is the first to be made by the club’s new kit manufacturers, Puma, and it has caused a stir online:

Fans on Twitter are split on the merits of the new jersey, with some thinking it is garish, while others are liking the bold styling:

The kit is said to be inspired by the “Madchester” scene in the 90s with yellow stripes on the right shoulder inspired by the city’s Hacienda club.

The home shirt, in contrast, is a more understated affair, although it does have purple trimming and a woven jacquard wave pattern in Sky Blue.

Puma’s deal with City is a ten-year contract worth a staggering £650m. It extends right across the City Football Group’s family of clubs, with the only exceptions being New York City and Yokohama F-Marinos who can agree their own kit deals.
