Manchester City a special commemorative kit to celebrate their 125th season

The kit, inspired by City’s history, with design elements voted for by fans, is primarily blue with a white trim. The crest features gold lettering denoting the club’s 125 years. The shirt is a classic design, free of sponsorship, which was made possible by Etihad Airways, the club’s principal partner.

Fans from around the world and within the U.A.E who took part in the vote, chose the anniversary crest design, the commemorative wording of ‘Manchester City since 1894’, and the symbol of a ship to represent Manchester.

A limited-edition run of 1,894 individually numbered authentic shirts will be produced to reflect the club’s founding year, as well as replica shirts for men, women and kids, which will be available to purchase at the end of this month.

Manchester City open the new Premier League campaign with a trip to West Ham United on Saturday August 10.
