After City celebrated lifting the Premier League trophy earlier this week, Nike Football today reveals the new 2018/19 home kit that the Champions will wear to defend their title next season.
The kit will be previewed for the first time tonight as the team faces Brighton at the Etihad Stadium in the final home match of this record-breaking season.
To unveil the new kit, Nike Football teamed up with the Club’s foundation, City in the Community (CITC), to give its participants the chance to headline the launch.
CITC participants from the BTEC education programme, KICKS youth outreach football project and players from the amputee and Down syndrome teams took part in an exclusive kit shoot to highlight the important role that the local community has played in City’s success this season.

Drawing inspiration from key moments in the Club’s history, the 2018/19 home jersey features the customary City blue colour, with dark blue speed blur stripes along the arms and shoulders.
The neckline features a V neck with a button detail on the collar, while white shorts and midnight navy socks with a City blue band detail complete the kit.
A return to navy socks echoes the kit worn when City first won the league title in 1937 and also in the pivotal 1998/99 season, which is considered by many to be the turning point in the modern history of the club. The kit will be worn by the men’s and women’s teams.
