Football kit release: Manchester City and Nike unveil away kit for 2014/15 season

Fa14_Match_Manchester City_PR_A_Front_R can tonight reveal that this season Manchester City are to play in a new away kit that emphasises their proud status as Barclays Premier League Champions, whilst also providing a subtle reference to a key moment in their history.

The 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 travelling to the hem to create a striking modern graphic.

In May 1999 Manchester City famously scored two late goals to secure a 2-2 draw against Gillingham 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 honour 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.
