New Manchester City kit unveiled

Manchester City have revealed their new home kit for the forthcoming 2014/15 season.

The new home strip, as you would expect, is in the customary Manchester City sky blue colour, with the only real difference this year being that the club have also elected to go for sky blue shorts, rather than the white of last season.

In fact from the images it seems Nike have removed all of the white from last year's shirt and swapped it for a very dark blue colour.

The new v-neck collar will be dark blue in colour, and so will the 2-inch thick cuffs that appear on the end of the sleeves.

City's sponsor Etihad Airways as well as the Nike logo are also in dark blue, as is the stripe on the shorts and the band on the top of the socks.

The new goalkeeping jersey is light green and retains the white Nike and sponsor logos; the sleeves fade into white halfway down, and in the centre the sleeve has a yellow v. 

Initial fan reaction to the new shirt appears positive with some saying they love it and others saying how much nicer it looks compared to Manchester United's new kit, which features the gold cross of Chevrolet emblazoned across the front.

The new strip is released in stores on July 17.
