Manchester City 23/24 Home Kit
The feature design for the club’s Puma 2023/24 home kit was a tonal striping pattern, ribbed for added visual activity. The v-collar was made white to enable a dual pinstripe in the base colour to flow through the middle and add another graphical variety. Because of the proximity of the middle stripes, it looked as if the shirt had one wide band at the centre flanked by narrow ones, despite the striping formation actually breaking down into four. The turrets outside the Etihad Stadium provided the inspiration for the aesthetical choice.
2022/23 Manchester City Home Shirt
Manchester City tweaked its primary outfit slightly for the 2022/23 season. The Sky Blue base was there, but the central logo placement was a refreshing sight, and the coloured sleeve cuffs and round collar came in maroon with a single white central stripe running across, giving the shirt a unique colour dynamic. Introduced in the teaser video ‘Long Live the King,’ the shirt was a tribute to one of the club’s greatest players ever, the late Colin Bell.
2021/22 Manchester City Home Shirt
The Citizens played with a predominantly sky blue home shirt made by Puma for the 2021/22 football season. A white underside panel on both left and right provided a colour accent to the traditional base. Aside from the said side trims, the front and the sleeves flashed a tonal and micro all-over pattern showing the scoreboard font style. The inside text 93:20 of the v-necked shirt was a tribute to Sergio Aguero’s goal against QPR done in the 93rd minute to win the 2011/12 Premier League title.
2020/21 Manchester City Home Shirt
City’s 2020/21 home shirt radiated with its sky blue base, crafted by kit maker Puma-the same brand that sponsored the team’s mercurial striker Sergio Aguero. Based on Puma’s ‘Crafted from Culture’ approach to kit-making, a prominent feature of the next-gen kit was the mosaic pattern permeating up front and extending to the sleeves. The mosaic print was derived from the mosaics of cultural icons that were found all over Manchester. It was worth noting that the mosaic print of the uniform also looked like shards of glass being glued back together, a symbolical reminder that next season was a chance to pick themselves up and rebuild together considering their downturn of form in 2020.
