English Premier League side, Manchester City has unveiled their next season’s away kit.
The new Manchester City away kit was unveiled via the club’s official website.
The kit combines the Club’s rich history with cutting-edge performance technology.
This season, Pep Guardiola’s team will wear a predominantly black kit, with red detailing and flashes of yellow, on their travels.
Inspired by the iconic red and black striped away kit of the 1960s, both colours return to City’s change strip for the first time since the unforgettable 2011/12 title-winning season.
The 2016/17 instalment also includes a Manchester icon, with the yellow detailing referencing the worker bee.
This has been synonymous with the City of Manchester since the Industrial Revolution and has featured on the city’s coat of arms since 1842.
City’s New Away Kit Made From Plastic Bottles
City’s new away kit also features stripes similar to that of the bee, vibrant yellow detailing, as well as a reimagined version of the new club crest, embellished on the kit’s distinctive black body and red shoulder and sleeves.
This new kit represents a proud symbol of the club and has also been designed with the latest speed-enhancing Nike innovations in performance technology, fabric construction, and moisture management.
The advanced performance technology in the kit is visible on the chest, where engineered knit zones create a geometric pattern that enhances fit with smaller mesh shapes at the bottom of the graphic.
The sides of the kit feature a red stripe that runs the length of the shirt and shorts. Expanding when the player is in motion, the stripe maximizes ventilation and reveals a subtle underlying yellow.
Fans can purchase the new Manchester City away kit and training wear on the Man City website.
The new away kits will officially go on sale on Thursday 4 August.
The kit’s shirt and shorts are constructed with recycled polyester fabric, which is made from recycled plastic bottles melted down to produce a fine yarn.
Each kit is made using approximately 16 recycled plastic bottles.
