Earlier this season it was reported Manchester City may be on the verge of ditching Nike for Under Armour, and these concept kits are how the new shirts could look.
The Star had reported that Under Armour could muscle in on existing kit manufacturers Nike.
Kit artist Sebbulba has knocked together some gorgeous concept kits to show what City’s new strips could look like.
Taking inspiration from some wonderful historic kits City have had over the years – the yellow-and-black from the 1999 play-off final, the black-and-red of great away kits from years past, and the classic blue and white their home kits have always been – to create some truly wonderful concepts.
The new badge and the Etihad Airways sponsor give the kit a quintessentially Manchester City feel, but the Under Armour logo on the socks, shorts and chest look absolutely banging on the concept kits.
With Nike only paying City £12million per year as part of their deal with the club, it’s a realistic possibility that Under Armour – or some other manufacturer – could usurp them.
As a Manchester City fan, my personal favourite has to be the yellow-and-black kit (to be fair, it’s a nod to my proudest moment as a City fan, so anything that pays tribute to Paul Dickov’s heroics in 1999 was always going to win).
Which one would you pick up?
