Manchester City’s new PUMA Home kit is inspired by the iconic 93:20 goal from the 2011/12 season that ended in an all-time iconic moment in Barclays history.
A decade on from Sergio Aguero’s legendary last-minute strike, the shirt echoes the moment through the new Home kit with a striking all-over repeated graphic of a digital clock, paying tribute to the goal that sealed the league in a way no football fan could have predicted.
“Witnessing that moment is something I will never forget. When the goal went in, we knew we had just seen greatness, something special”, said Micah Richards, Manchester City legend. “The league was hanging in the balance and then to secure it in the final minute, in that fashion, I don’t think will ever be replicated. The new kit is a perfect tribute to one of the greatest moments in City’s history”.
The new Manchester City Home jersey combines 100% recycled polyester with advanced PUMA dryCELL thermoregulation technology to ensure uncompromising fit and mobility, keeping the athlete dry and comfortable. The jersey integrates an Ultra-light jacquard structure into the back of the jersey to enhance breathability during intense performance and complemented by sky blue shorts and hooped socks to complete the look.
City’s Goalkeeper kits arrive in a green colourway, accented with a vibrant, all-over graphic made up of kinetic lines that run all over the jersey.
Additionally, Manchester City have dropped a super-clean prematch collection which features a prematch jersey, prematch ¼ zip top, prematch jacket and prematch pant. For the first time Manchester City’s prematch collection utilizes PUMA and First Mile’s recycling initiative by turning plastic waste into products.
First Mile is a people-focused network that strengthens micro-economies, working with waste collection communities in Taiwan, Haiti and Honduras by collecting plastic waste and creating jobs and reducing environmental waste. This year’s collection is made from at least 84% post-consumer plastic collected in Taiwan.
