Reigning English League champions Manchester City FC have launched their Umbro home and away kits for the 2012/13 domestic and UEFA Champions League seasons. Here is a detailed look at the new Citizens shirts along with information on them courtesy of Umbro. Both will be available at World Soccer Shop and Kitbag.
Manchester City Home Shirt: As they start the season as Premier League champions, Manchester City’s fans and players will be looking for further success in a smart new vista blue home shirt.
With smart front body darting for a fitted, tailored look, the short sleeved shirt has an eye-catching woven collar with stretch collar stand.
The iconic Manchester City crest is embroidered in a cool two colour design, while the Umbro logo and the club’s sponsor feature in a tonal black.
With special stretch fabric on the arms providing increased movement and comfort, the new MCFC home shirt is completed with a subtle needle finish on the hem and sleeves – a beautiful new shirt tailored for the English champions.
Inspired by the one-off shirts that City heroes wore for their 1956 FA Cup final victory, the new 2012 Manchester City away shirt celebrates The Blues historic triumph in the final of last year’s competition.
Embroidered with the Umbro diamond and with an applique club crest on the chest, this short sleeved version of the sharp new Manchester City away shirt 2012 is a stylish way to show your support as the club enters a potentially illustrious new era.
This striped zinfandel coloured shirt is expertly tailored for an improved fit with stretch sleeves, front darts on the body and a classic mitred V neck, so it looks smart in the stands or out on the pitch.
