Manchester City and PUMA Celebrate 20 Years at the Etihad With 23/24 Home Kit Release

Marking a milestone moment with a nod to the past.

May 19th 2023

Manchester City and PUMA’s 23/24 Home kit marks the 20th anniversary of the club’s historic move to the Etihad Stadium.

The latest release pays homage to the ground’s iconic features and is also inspired by the jersey worn during the Cityzens’ first season at the Etihad.

After 80 years at Maine Road, Manchester City moved just over three miles away to their new residence, a move that marked a new era for the club – one defined by new records, new legends and moments of greatness. The 23/24 Home kit is a testament to that era.

The front graphic of the new Home jersey is inspired by the unique architecture of the Etihad Stadium, in particular the four giant turrets visible from the outside of the ground that form tonal stripes on the jersey.

The Etihad’s postcode is displayed on the back of the neck to celebrate the 20th anniversary, and the jersey features a white V-neck collar that is inspired by the first kit used in the new stadium, the 2003/04 Home jersey. As part of the kit launch, PUMA and Manchester City invited a selection of fans and club representatives to feature alongside the men’s and women’s first team players to mark this celebratory moment.

The new jersey features cutting-edge technology to provide optimal performance and comfort on the pitch. Engineered with ULTRAWEAVE fabric, the kit boasts a structured, 4-way stretch design that reduces weight and friction, allowing players to move freely and comfortably. Whilst the Replica version is made with 100% recycled polyester and equipped with dryCELL sweat-wicking technology to keep you dry and comfortable both on and off the pitch.

Following the success of PUMA’s first ever kit launch in the Metaverse for Manchester City’s 2022/23 Third kit in August last year, Manchester City will also be highlighting the launch of the 2023/24 Home kit with a celebratory metaverse event on their Roblox experience, ‘Blue Moon’.

A virtual version of the Home kit will be available with player personalization options. The Blue Moon event will include digital merchandise, fun quests, photo opportunities and special appearances from some of your favorite City players.

The kit is available to purchase now via PUMA stores as well as online.
