Manchester City Home Shirt for 2012-13 Season Leaked [PHOTO]

manchester city home shirt tiff Manchester City Home Shirt for 2012 13 Season Leaked [PHOTO]

A photo has been leaked on the Internet featuring what appears to be Manchester City’s new home kit for the 2012-13 Premier League season.

Manchester City defender Aleksandar Kolarov is pictured wearing the new Manchester City home shirt. As you can see from the above leaked photograph, it features black trim instead of the current white trim. The black trim is a prominent feature on the Manchester City crest, sponsor’s name and collar. Speaking of the collar, it looks quite smart.

The new Man City home shirt isn’t a departure from the tried-and-true designs that we’re used to seeing from City and Umbro. As in previous seasons, the designs are simple and clean. It’s a thumbs up from me. But what do you think? Share your opinion in the comments section below.

In the meantime, Manchester City needs your help to launch their new kit for the 2012-13 season.

The club along with Umbro is running a contest where they’re going to reward the most creative idea of how you’d launch the new Manchester City kit.

According to Umbro, “Think of an amazing way to launch one of the new Manchester City kits. Apply with an explanation of your brilliant idea and why you should be selected to launch a kit.”

The winner will receive a limited-edition City Blue Box containing the new kit. A professional film crew will then come to you and film your personal launch. Then, when Umbro and Manchester City launch the kit, your idea will be featured as part of the launch.

    That video is hilarious, it’s a good thing their feet do most of their talking!

    The new kit reeks of oil money. This year’s was better imo.

  2. Tom says:

    Reeks of oil money? Because they used black trim? What about all the times in the past they used black trim? What about all the other clubs that use black trim?

  3. steve says:

    its a polo not exactly mind blowing, now i f they were halter tops with bedazzled numbers, that’d be something

  4. Craig says:

    Better than last year back to a good old city shirt I like it

  5. adz says:

    I like it. love simple kit designs that have a professional touch on them

  6. Frill Artist says:

    Just as shitty as the team itself. What a joke.

    • BLUE BOY says:

      You lot really are OBSESSED with us now aren’t you? ‘Ooh I wonder what City’s new kit will look like’. Yeah, imagine it with the gold badges on the sleeve you mug.

    • Alfie McKeown says:

      Have you seen uniteds new shirt now thats sh*t???? 6-1 & 1-0 joke like the team itself, broke and found out.

    • Alex Wolcott says:

      Two words for you, M8: SCORE BOARD.

      I must admit that it would be “typical City” for us to drop points this Sunday against the QPR and allow all of United’s “fans” in Dallas Texas, Kuala Lumpur, and wherever else to celebrate.

      But if that happens, you’ll still have Malcolm Glazer and an 0-2 record against us in League play.

    • robin says:

      better than that tartan effort lol in fact lmfao when i the new man utd kit

    • city4life says:

    • harry cee says:

      Frill you are doing a piss poor job repping us, ya know.

      (please pay no attention to the man behind the curtains!!)

    • bluegilly says:

      Typical rag,firstly city is the so called sh*tty team that beat u to the prem lg title,won both derby’s and have played better football all season.As for our kit,compared to utd’s picnic blanket its a masterpiece.Anyhow fancy like relaxing for a while,Think I’ll watch a dvd,maybe gone in 60 seconds.

    • Truth teller.... better believe it fools says:

      Well mister “fatarse”, did you check up on the news lately?

      WHO just won the premier league? Oh yeah, MANCHESTER CITY! Who failed miserably? Yeah, your little puppet, United.

    • The_cheg says:

      Oh yeah cause that lovely tartan your gunna be sporting is sooooo much better!

    • DH says:

      Waheeey. Manchester United – the team followed by life’s losers.

    • frank says:

    • paul says:

      2nd place really is 1st last

    • Mike says:

      Prick hahaha

  7. adz says:

    frill artist u clearly no nothing. just like the other 99% of united fans u probably live in Thailand or Vietnam.
    city are clearly one of the best teams around.
    so get back to eating ur rice and plucking chickens you typical red

  8. ccm says:

    at least better than united 2012/13 kit. really ugly!

  9. Todd says:

    I like the new home kit. Remember the first kit for the club was black. It’s the past and present combined.

    • ZxhAzzAXz says:

      Maybe thats what the premier league next season is trying to do. make all the kits look old fashioned.

  10. Karl says:

    Hopefully, whether first and second away shirt still maintain red-black color.

  11. macca says:

    Umbro are usually pretty hot on keeping lit launches a secret … and good also at red herrings, so this may not be 100% the new kit. Agree with Karl, I hope they keep the old AC Milan inspired away kit too !

  12. mb74 says:

    and the kit will be made by Nike so epic fail!

  13. Dan says:

    Well i like the shirt. However, I’d definitely change the white shorts to blue shorts just like the 11/12 season as an all blue strip was sweet. Secondly, the city crest itself I don’t believe should be black and white, keep it original logo… just my opinions but nevertheless its a nice strip

    they’ll not be with umbro is 13/14 anyway since they signed up with Nike

  14. ADAM JONSON says:


  15. dip says:

    When will the new kits be available? anyone know?

    I really want to see citys 3rd kit for 2010/2011 come back, the white with the red and black side strips

  16. adz says:

    @aroon shah if you aimed ‘richardhead’ at me. I now realise I spelt no wrong
    an should of spelt it ‘know’. I also think I may of misused some grammar in there to.
    apologies to you. please feel free to grade me again

  17. Mark_LFC says:

    Very nice looking and classy kitand good move back to white shorts. It looks like a kit premier league champions would wear… Good luck to city on sunday!

  18. city life says:

    man u man who bunch ov shrek lovin hasbins enjoy sunderland

  19. adz says:

    can’t wait to see all red scum crying at the sight of the blue/true mancs lift the trophy.
    maybe if we are looking they will be relegated next year to

  20. Bojan says:

    This is fake because Man city signed a contract with Nike for 2012-13 season!

  21. bergkamp's sweet strike says:

    United’s kit is a rag, in every sense of the word.

  22. tevez play whenever he wants says:

    Ho cares. Looks like sh*t. money cant buy class, city losers.

  23. tevez play whenever he wants says:

    Money cant buy class. Enjoy your oil reeking jersey losers

  24. City boi says:

    Its a training kit that City have been seen using more than once this season :) ive seen them train in it and as for the red and black striped away shirt i imagine it will be next seasons 3rd kit as the white away strip from 2010 was last years 3rd shirt and the blue away kit for the season after was the 3rd kit for the championship winning season…..

  25. Htwe Ei Ei Win says:

    nice clothes kolarov the best…….. hehe :)

  26. lynsey says:

    hahahahah all you rags…. your lookin at the league champions new shirt….. just need to add the gold badge.

  27. its a nice kit,,we may as well enjoy it next year, cos the following year we are wearing nike!!,,and nike make nasty kits, like the last 10 or so united kits for instance!,,,bloody disgusting the lot of them!!

  28. rob says:

    its a fake the new shirt is made by nike

  29. jason says:

    After seeing Man City in all blue this year I really got used to that and thought it would be a permanent thing. Not so I guess.

    The kit is good but I would have preferred them stay in blue shorts.

  30. Raiderblack says:

    Oil money… a good thing… Nice looking shirt, better than last year, but I was expecting more… too simple…

  31. Azza says:

    It’s fake Nike are sponsoring Man City’s kit next year whilst this clearly has an Umbro badge on it

  32. Michael says:

    Shirts with collars should be banned….this is football, not rugby or golf.

  33. Andrew says:

    No kit (except the Tottenham one posted on April 1 haha) holds a candle to the European Champions’ kit. Blue is the colour. And the gold trim will match the gold star quite nicely. Cheers!
