EXCLUSIVE: Manchester City 17-18 Kit to Feature Red

This image shows the colors used in the Nike Manchester City 2017-2018 jersey.

While it will feature red detailing, the Manchester City 17-18 shirt will still be predominantly sky blue. The blue base of the Manchester City 2017-2018 kit will be combined with white and, more unusually maroon.

Maroon is a color that has been used through many Manchester City kits in the past, most notably in the form of the famous 1956 FA Cup winning jersey, which was the change jersey that season. Umbro released a throwback to that specific kit in the form of the 2012-13 Manchester City away kit, to give another example.

However, the Manchester City 2017-18 kit will be one of the first in the club's history to feature maroon on the shirt. Until now, the color was mostly used as trim on the socks, most recently with the 2010-11 Manchester City home kit by Umbro.

Last but not least, navy will be used for the Nike and Etihad logos on the new Manchester City kit for the 2017-18 season.

Template-wise, no details are confirmed as of now. Anyway, we expect the Manchester City 2017-2018 home kit to be based on a slightly updated edition of Nike's Vapor template - more on that later.

The Manchester City 17-18 shirt is expected to be released in early July 2017.
