CITY will be men in black on nine more occasions away from home this season.

The new third kit will be utilised three times and in the rest of the games Mark Hughes’ men will wear sky blue.

The freshly designed, classic white strip, which can be pre-ordered from early next month, will have its first public airing against Portsmouth at Fratton Park on Sunday afternoon.

Having won at Blackburn first time out in the black second strip, the lads will be wearing it at Arsenal, Aston Villa, Birmingham, Bolton, Burnley, Fulham, Stoke City, Spurs and Wigan.

The third kit will be seen at Chelsea and Everton in addition to Pompey and in the rest of the matches the home kit will be in use.

Supporters are reminded that all the new kits, tailored by Umbro, are only available from the official Club outlets at the Citycentre at CoMS or in Manchester’s Arndale Centre.

Adult short-sleeved shirts retail at £40, Seasoncard holders get a 10% discount while Citycard and Accesscard members will get 5% off.
