Manchester City has unveiled its away shirt for the 2014/15 season.
Joe Hart, James Milner, Jesús Navas and Stevan Jovetic unveiled the club’s new away shirt last night in Manhattan’s Hudson Mercantile area.
The Manchester City away shirt features a dark blue collar with a lighter blue v-shaped insert, while the body consists of a series of blue bands. These tonal bands are dark blue at the top of the shirt and gradually become lighter traveling to the hem.
The shirt is meant to be a tribute to Manchester City’s win against Gillingham in 1999 in the Second Division Play-Off final at Wembley before winning in a penalty shoot-out and securing promotion back to the First Division. “On that day, City triumphed wearing an away shirt of dark blue and yellow stripes, and to honor that memorable occasion this season’s away shirt features yellow names and numbers on the back, and the Nike swoosh and sponsor’s name are also in yellow on the front,” said a statement on the club’s website.
Inside the back of the neck is a dark blue pennant tab with the bold statement ‘We are City’ in yellow.
The new away shorts are dark blue, while the new away socks are also dark blue with a lighter blue at the top, and a wide tonal stripe of chevrons on the back.
