Manchester City revealed their new home shirt and kit for 2013-14 in the heart of
The Big Apple where they are beginning their week long New York Tour. Manchester
City stars Joe Hart, Vincent Kompany, Pablo Zabaleta, Jack Rodwell, Carlos Tevez,
James Milner and Matija Nastasic, unveiled the Club’s first ever Nike kit, see picture
The new kit marks the beginning of a six year deal between City and Nike which will
run until 2019. Nike claims the new kit pays homage to City’s heritage while looking
to the future. The shirt itself is a traditional football design, featuring a sky
blue body with white ribbed crew neck and cuffs. The collar and cuffs also feature
a dark blue trim to represent the colour of the socks City wore as part of one of
their first ever kits in 1892.
On this new shirt the Manchester City club crest is placed inside a shield shape.
This is inspired by the city of Manchester’s coat of arms, which City used as their
own club crest for special occasions including the 1956 FA Cup final.
The new home
shorts are white with a thin sky blue stripe along each side, while the new home
socks are white with a sky blue band at the top with a dark blue trim.
We think most City fans will be pleased with this classic, simple design. What do

band at the top.
