With PUMA set to take over as Manchester City‘s kit manufacturer in the near future, Nike has released a special-edition jersey to mark the six-year partnership. The limited-edition shirt is made up of fragments of iconic kits worn over the past six years, including references to title-winning and record-breaking seasons.
The nine kits featured in the mash-up jersey range from the 2017/18 home jersey — which marked the club’s centenary and saw it break the Premier League points record – to the third jersey worn in the double-winning 2013/14 season. Speaking about the commemorative jersey, Manchester City’s Phil Foden explained that the kit means that “the fans will be able to point out the jerseys and relive the memories created in them.”
The shirt will make its on-pitch debut as a pre-match option for the rest of this season’s English Premier League. The jersey — which is individually numbered and limited to 6,000 — will then release via the Nike web store on April 10.
