Manchester City’s new 2021/22 home kit has been leaked online, and it has a very interesting feature that fans are sure to love.
Pictures emerged online of the planned new home kit, which will feature a commemoration to the 10th anniversary of striker Sergio Aguero’s legendary title-winning goal.
The goal was scored in at 93:20 of their dramatic 3-2 win over Queens Park Rangers on the final day of the season to crown them Premier League champions for the first time. Puma have chosen to honour that, by emblazoning the collar of the shirt at the back of the neck with ’93:20′.
The kit will also continue with the traditional sky blue base and white trim, with under the arm panels being white as well as all logos and crests too.
There is an added bonus the 93:20, as the colour balance on the shirt also outlines the number ’10’ which would represent Aguero‘s shirt number and the anniversary. Aguero will of course leave the club this summer so he won’t wear the shirt – unless they preview the shirt before the end of the season.
In line with most recent Puma jerseys, a subtle all-over pattern, inspired by the scoreboard font style of the collar graphic, covers the front and sleeves of the supposed Man City 20-21 fourth kit.
The kit was exclusively revealed by the ever-reliable Footy Headlines, and has received a mixed reaction from fans.
A section of support seem to be a fan of the collar graphic while others believe it is a bit corny, while plenty are unhappy about the overall design and colour scheme of the kit.
It also seems that the club have agreed to maintain their sponsorship with Etihad for the front of their shirt, with no announcement yet but the deal due to end at the end of the current campaign. Imagine our shock at that one.
