This season Manchester City will play in a new away kit that emphasizes their proud status as Barclays Premier League Champions, while providing a subtle reference to a key moment in their history. The away shirt features a dark blue collar with a lighter blue V-shaped insert, and the body consists of a series of blue bands. These tonal bands are dark blue at the top of the shirt and gradually become lighter travelling to the hem creating a striking modern graphic. Inside the back of the neck is a dark blue pennant tab with the bold statement “We are City” in yellow. The new away kit will be available to pre-order from July 25 and to purchase in stores and from Nike.com from July 29.
