Before their number one debut album, Tom Ogden and Joe Donovan from Blossoms were Etihad season ticket holders and supporting The Stone Roses at the home of the Blues is something they'll never forget.

A bright kit requires a certain confidence and Fallowfield Blue Bobby Graham reckons the Club and the city can carry it off: "There’s a Manchester swagger. You’re born with it.”

A Blue since birth, City is an institution in James Faulkner's life: "Things come and go, life changes, but City is always there and there’s something comfortable in that.”

Adio Marchant, known by his stage name Bi-Polar Sunshine, has a closer relationship with the Blues than most. The brother of Ashley Smith-Brown, he once scored a penalty at an Old Trafford charity game and celebrated by revealing a City shirt.

City will wear the new kit on their Champions League travels and Leo Adams, thinks facing Barcelona in the group stage has its benefits: "Pep already knows their style of play so it’s the best time to get them.”

A Maine Road regular until his skateboarding career took off, Joe Gavin loves Manchester's vibrancy, which this kit pays tribute to.

Internationally renowned portrait photographer Michael Mayren is looking forward to wearing the new kit on his travels. He wears his heart on his sleeve and likes to show his allegiance whenever he’s outside of Manchester.

Shiraf Reyhani, of legendary menswear store Oi Polloi, knows the importance of good attire. You'll find him singing his heart out in the South Stand on matchdays.

The new third kit is available to pre-order now and officially on sale from Thursday 22 September.
