Nike and Manchester City have revealed the upcoming away kit for The Citizens for the upcoming 2013-14 season. In their first year with Nike as their kit suppliers, Man City will be sporting an all black away kit featuring gold trim. I’m going to be honest here and say I’, not a City fan. But this kit right here is the bizness. It may not be traditional but it looks crisp. And it looks tough. And if you take the field in all black kit you will walk out with just a little more swagger. So they got that going for them…
For the 2013-14 season Manchester City will play in a new Nike-designed away kit that honors the club’s history and founding fathers. The club unveiled the kit today in Hong Kong as part of its pre-season tour.
City was founded as St Mark’s in 1880 before becoming Gorton AFC in 1884, and then Ardwick AFC between 1887 and 1894. The new City away shirt has a subtle half-and-half design, a graphic element that reflects Ardwick AFC’s design in the 1890-91 season. The colors represent Gorton AFC, who played in black.
The away shirt features a grandfather collar, a long placket and a stand at the back.
The Manchester City crest, Nike Swoosh and sponsor’s logo are all in gold to reflect the Club’s most recent successes.
The new away shorts are black, and the away socks are black with a dark charcoal band at the top.
This new kit showcases Nike’s committment to aiding the performance of players with key technological benefits:
