This is a first look at the new Man City kit 11/12 ( 2011/2012) by Umbro, which was officially unveiled at the FA Cup homecoming event at the City of Manchester Stadium on 23rd May 2011.
Kit partners Umbro had initially made the announcement about the unveiling of the new City away strip in a blog post on their official website.
According to the teaser released by Umbro for the new Man City away kit 11/12, City were supposed reverting back to a red and black strip for their away games in the 2011/2012 season, which was proven true when City officially released pictures of their new 11/12 away shirt. The red and black Man City kit takes inspiration from the kit worn by MCFC when they won the FA Cup, League Cup and European Cup Winners Cup in the later 1960’s.
Given below are photos of the new Man City kit 11/12 ( red & black), along with the Umbro teaser for the strip. The shirt is a red and black striped creation, with black shorts and black socks with red trim completing the kit. Etihad Airways continue to remain the sponsors ( Their sponsors logo is in gold)
Manchester City finished third in the 2010/11 Premier League season and also won the FA Cup by beating Stoke City in the final at Wembley.
