New Manchester City Away Shirt | Celebrating historical moment


Written by Zlatko

Manchester City is known of being one of the best football clubs in Europe and has proven this by winning the Premier League multiple times the last couple of years, while reaching far into the Champions League play-off. The new Away Shirt focusses on the story which brought Manchester City a step closer to the Premier League.

Manchester City Away Shirt history

The new Manchester City 2018/19 Away Shirt goes back in history and celebrates an important day for the Citizens. Many considers the game against Gillingham back in 1999 as one of the most important games for the club. Manchester City was behind 2-0 in the play-off final for the first division promotion. But City managed to score two dramatic injury-time goals, which sent the game into extra time. Manchester City went onto beat Gillingham in penalties and take the promotion and get one step closer to the Premier League.

Design of the Manchester City Away Shirt

The new 2018/19 Away Shirt celebrates the historical day, by paying tribute to their 1998/99 Away Shirt, which back then had a Volt and navy striped design. The two colours are also used in the new 2018/19 Away Shirt, where the Volt colour is made as pinstripes, while the navy-blue colour is used a base. Furthermore, the iconic sky-blue colour is also added as a stripe on the new Away Shirt, which draws a close connection to the blue colour Manchester City is known for.

The Manchester City 2018/19 Away Shirt will be complemented with navy-blue shorts and with volt socks, to complete the full look that tributes the 1999 kit. Added details on the back on the neck also features the light blue and volt stripes, while ‘City’ is written.
