We’ve seen the home and away kits for next season, but what about the third kit? Twitter user @MCFCjustsayin has posted a photo of a shirt that accurately matches previous descriptions of what next season’s third kit will look like. It’s, shall we say, very colourful.
Here’s a description of the third kit from the always reliable FootyHeadlines.com.
“Made by Nike, the new Manchester City third jersey is predominantly orange with a dominant purple fade on the front. Both the Nike and Etihad logos on the front of the Made City 16-17 third kit are white. Based on Nike’s Vapor kit template with AeroSwift technology, the Manchester City 2016-17 third shirt sees a black line run down on each side.
In the first season in which Manchester City uses its new club logo, Nike and the club decided to use the original, colored version of it on the Manchester City 2016-2017 third kit.
The shorts of the Manchester City 16-17 third kit will also be purple (officially ‘Persian Violet’), while the color of the socks is not known at the moment.
The Manchester City 2016-17 third kit will be the first time for Manchester City to sport an orange shirt in away games since the 2008-09 season, when the away kit was orange with navy and yellow trim.”
