Kit informationEdit

The club is in the third year of a deal with the American manufacturer Nike.[2]

  • Home: The new home kit features the traditional colours of sky blue and white. The kit sees a return to white details, which were ditched last season in favour of navy applications. The shirt has a white polo neck collar and cuffs, along with a white stripe running from the bottom of the sleeves to the sides of the shirt. White shorts are returned to the kit, which is combined with sky blue socks with a white turnover.[3]
  • Away: The away kit is predominantly navy for the second season running, but this time the strip is combined with 'Chlorine Blue' detailing on the crew neck and the cuffs. The arms, however, feature a striking graphic of the Blue Moon, inspired by the song sung by the club's fans at the match days. The shirt is combined with navy shorts and socks.[4]
  • Third: The third kit is mainly a shade of chartreuse, known as 'ghost green', with black gradient graphic at the base of the sleeves and the bottom of the shorts. The yellowish green colour of the kit was inspired by the yellow and navy striped away kit worn by the club in the 1999 play-off final, when Manchester City overcame a two-goal deficit to take the game to extra time and eventually win on penalties. The kit is based on Nike's new premium template, which is also worn by other major clubs.[5]
  • Keeper: A new set of goalkeeper strips were released by Nike to be worn in the 2015–16 campaign. The first-choice strip is dark purple with lighter bluish line gradient on the arms, whilst the alternatives were yellow and green with a similar toned line gradient on the arms.[6]
