Since the beginning of the 21st Century, Manchester City has emerged from an club looking to earn its stripes upon their promotion back into the Premier League in 2002, to one of the elite clubs in one of the most watched leagues in the world. One of the Premiership’s founding clubs along with crosstown neighbor Manchester United, the Citizens are rapidly growing into a globally-revered club in soccer.
Manchester City and Nike have once again joined forces to produce a very classy look for their 2015/16 home kit. The 2013/14 champion had to deal with second place in 2014/15, eight points behind champion Chelsea. The kit comes in their traditional sky blue and white, with navy blue details.
The jersey has a white polo collar and features concealed buttons within the fold.
The sleeves are also in sky blue, with white sleeve cuffs.
Single white stripes can be seen racing down the flanks as piping for the shirt, as it starts from sleeves through the underarms and ends at the hem.
Manchester City’s shorts are white with sky blue stripes on each side. The socks are sky blue with a white topstripe. the Nike swooshes for all three are in navy blue, with the badge on the shirt sewn over a shield outline at the heart of the shirt. Etihad Airways returns as shirt sponsor for Manchester City for their sixth season together.
Extremely versatile Manchester City Women’s and English captain Steph Houghton suits up for the FA Women’s Super League side, whose kit practically has the same features as the men’s team.
