The new home kit that Erling Haaland and Manchester City will be sporting this season is here and it’s one of their boldest looks yet. Inspired by players in a class of their own, the all new away jersey tells the story of a truly iconic club. 

Inspired by History

One of the most prolific clubs in the history of football deserves a kit that is inspired by their rich history and one of the most successful eras in club history. Nearly 50 years after the class that changed City’s football history forever, PUMA and Manchester City are paying tribute to them. The class of 1969, led by City great Colin Bell, turned the heads of all their opponents with their electric energy, fearless attitude, and most importantly, their prolific style of play. The class of ‘69 was also the first to feature a bold away strip in the 1969 FA Cup victory and 1970 League Cup and European Cup Winner’s Cup victories. The all new jersey is in celebration of the club’s biggest wins and the history that has shaped their modern successes. 

The all new 2022/2023 away kit for Manchester City is an homage to the prolific class of players that changed the history of the club forever. The kit brings in new energy into the classic and iconic jersey that brought success to City and changed the look of the club forever. The red and black stripes are back after nearly a decade of absence, but for the first time in history, flow down the jersey at an angle. The stripes on this iconic look have been inspired by the Club’s historic crest as well as the three rivers that triumphantly flow through Manchester.

The Technology

PUMA’s authentic jersey is the one worn by the pros during all their matches. They’ve been designed for elite performance with PUMA ULTRAWEAVE technology. This fabric technology features a lightweight material and a slim-fit for the ultimate jersey feeling that’s natural and perfect for the beautiful game. The all new jersey only weighs just 72 grams and is home to a reduced number of seams designed specifically to optimize player and fan performance. Also paired with 100% polyester, the feeling and look of this jersey is just as unique as the club that is wearing it.

Final Thoughts

Understanding who you are and how you got here can play a huge role in your future successes. Manchester City is arguably one of the biggest and most successful clubs in history, but it’s not without the successes of those that walked before them. The new away jersey pays tribute to those that walked before them and serves as an inspiration for those that follow. With the 2022/2023 Premier League season quickly approaching, the new jersey will serve as the inspiration for the club to lift yet another trophy. The look and story of this jersey are inspiring and they’re paired with some of the best jersey technology that you certainly won’t want to miss out on.
