New Manchester City away kit 2013/14
Manchester City will play in a new away kit next season paying homage to their rich history and the club’s founding fathers.
City were created as St Mark’s in 1880, before becoming Gorton AFC in 1884, and then Ardwick AFC between 1887 and 1894.
The new City away jersey has a subtle half and half design, which represents Ardwick AFC who played in the same design during the 1890-91 season. The halves of the jersey are in dark charcoal and black representing Gorton AFC who played in a black shirt, the first ever recorded kit of what would become Manchester City in 1884.
The jersey features a grandfather collar, a long placket and a stand at the back.
The Manchester City crest, the Nike swoosh and sponsor’s logo are all in gold to represent the club’s recent success in modern times.
The new away shorts are black, while the new away socks are black with a dark charcoal band at the top.
Fabric and Nike Dri-Fit
– The jersey weighs just 150 grams, 23 percent lighter than previous Nike kits. It also boasts a 20 percent stronger knit structure and significantly improved stretch.
– The fabric uses Nike Dri-FIT technology to draw sweat away from the body through the fabric where it can evaporate, to keep players cool and dry.
– Ventilation zones under the arms on both sides, as well as at the shorts waistband, to allow additional comfort and cooling. A mesh panel across the entire back increases air circulation.
Name and Number kit
As can be spotted from the shorts the Man City printing for the away kit 13/14 will be the gold / white Premier League style.
Both for the jersey and for the shorts.
