Manchester City Home shirt 22/23

Manchester City are honoring club legend “Colin the King” who sadly passed away in january. With a shirt reminiscent of what he and the successful team wore in the late 60s, PUMA are keeping it old school while paying a classy tribute to “the King”.

With a centralized crest, first introduced in 1971, the new Man City shirt is sure to stand out from the crowd and give it a vintage vibe. On the rear of the neck is a ship motif, representing the Manchester Ship Canal in which the club takes great pride. This is all tied neatly together with a maroon collar and sleeve cuffs, which the Citizens had on their socks in the 1960s.


Inside the collar Man City are paying tribute to the King - Colin Bell. In 2004 the Etihad Stadium named a stand after the legendary midfielder, so it is safe to say that this is a true club icon. Maybe “the King” will be the last piece to the missing UEFA Champions League puzzle? We will have to wait and see.
