Manchester City Home, Away and Third Kits For 09-10 Season

[pictured removed by request of copyright holder]

A picture has been leaked of Manchester City’s new home, away and third football kits for the 09-10 season. Designed and manufactured by Umbro, and featuring new sponsors Etihad Airlines emblazoned across the front of the shirts.

During the past few seasons, Manchester City have been on the receiving end of some awful shirt designs. Luckily, for next season after changing to Umbro, the new shirt designs are significantly improved.

The home shirt features the traditional sky blue colours with white trim. The round collar adds a traditional style to the shirt. In fact, the design of the shirt altogether is a good balance between modernity (the logo, for example) and a classic design. Simple, but effective.

What is presumably Manchester City’s new away kit for the 2009-10 season is the white shirt with red and blue stripe that runs diagonally across the shirt. It’s a tribute to the classic Manchester City away shirt from the 1970′s. Just like the home shirt, the away shirt is classy and appealing due to being retro. Interestingly, the diagonal stripes run down the opposite side of the shirt than it did in the classic 1970′s version.

The third shirt, meanwhile, is difficult to discern in the above picture. It appears to be navy blue or black in colour.
