Following on from yesterday’s home kit reveal, Umbro have also lifted the lid on the Manchester City Away Shirt 2012-13.
Once again enlisting the help of former Oasis rocker Noel Gallagher and current captain Vincent Kompany, Umbro have gone for a new spin on a classic kit for the Manchester City Away Shirt 2012-13.
The new Away shirt sees a return to the classic maroon colour worn by the FA Cup winning teams of 1934 and 1956, which were also created by Umbro; a fitting ‘full circle’ as Umbro are set to part ways with the Manchester club, once again.
Unlike the Home kit’s icy-cool two-tone crest, the Manchester City Away Shirt 2012-13 opts for the traditional full-colour varient, and we’re sure fans will appreciate the variety.
Also in contrast to the home shirt, the classic V-neck collar gives a clean, classic look in comparison to the crisp polo-collar of the traditional sky blue kit.
Panelled with a dark maroon stripe subtly interrupting the body of the shirt, we tip out hats to Umbro for giving the Premier League Champs a pair of kits that look to the club’s modern squad, whilst celebrating it’s history.
Both kits are available to pre-order from 6th July. The away kit is available on general sale from 14th July and the home kit on 26th July.
