The 2023/24 Manchester City home kit, launched by PUMA today, marks the 20th anniversary of the club’s move to the Etihad Stadium. The jersey features elements that honor the stadium’s iconic design and the shirt worn in the first season at the new home.
Manchester City left Maine Road, their home for 80 years, and moved to the Etihad Stadium in August 2003. This began a new era of success, records, and legends for the club. The Premier League and European powerhouse’s 2023/24 home shirt celebrates this legacy and the Etihad Stadium’s connection to the fans.
The Manchester City 23/24 PUMA home jersey has a front graphic inspired by the four giant turrets that are visible from outside the stadium and form tonal stripes on the jersey. The stadium’s postcode is displayed on the back of the neck to commemorate 20 years at the new home. The jersey also has a white V-neck collar that is inspired by the 2003/04 Home shirt, the first one used at the Etihad.
Shaun Wright-Phillips, who played for Manchester City in the 2003/04 season, said: “The Etihad Stadium is an important part of Manchester City’s history.”
“Players and fans will hold special memories of moments shared there, so it’s fantastic that PUMA has taken inspiration from it for this year’s home kit.”
“I’m incredibly proud to have worn the Manchester City shirt and played during that debut season at the Etihad. I hope this year’s shirt brings back lots of memories for our fans, as it has for me.”
“The 20th anniversary of our move to the Etihad Stadium is a momentous occasion, celebrating the incredible rise of the club over that period. The new Home kit is a tribute to the incredible moments shared there and the unwavering support of the fans,“ commented Marco Mueller, PUMA Senior Head of Product Line Management Teamsport Apparel.
“The jersey combines modern design elements with tributes to the club’s first season at the new ground, creating a unique and meaningful kit for the payers and the fans, celebrating the place they call home.”
The Manchester City 2023/24 PUMA home kit uses advanced technology to provide optimal performance and comfort on the pitch.
The jersey is made with ULTRAWEAVE fabric, which has a structured, 4-way stretch design that reduces weight and friction, allowing players to move freely and comfortably. The fabric also has dryCELL technology, which keeps the body free from sweat.
The replica version is made with 100% recycled polyester and has dryCELL technology to keep you dry and comfortable throughout the game and beyond. Both jerseys are made with 100% recycled materials apart from their trims and accents.
