Manchester City announce new third kit for the 2016/17 campaign

Manchester City have announced the third kit for this season which will be worn for all away cup games.

The kit is described as follows, by the official Manchester City website:

“Combining a bold violet with orange, City will sport this distinctive look for the first time against Swansea City in the third round of the English Football League Cup, as well as on their travels in the Champions League and FA Cup, for the remainder of the campaign.

Violet first appeared on City’s 1992 away shirt and also featured in the 2007-08 and 2014-15 versions. This season, orange horizontal lines overlay the shirt’s violet base.

Accompanied by violet shorts, the eye-catching kit is completed with socks that replicate the colour combination of the new shirt and the Club’s history is also referenced with ‘CITY’ and ‘EST 1894’ stitching on the back of the collar and on the inside of the cuffs.

In keeping with the 2016/17 home and away kits, the third strip utilises Nike AeroSwift Technology and is designed to maximise player performance.

A black stripe also runs along each flank of the shirt and shorts, which expands with movement to provide enhanced ventilation, while the sock offers additional cushioning around the toes, ankle and heel to provide players with superior comfort.”
