Fake! New York City FC 2016 Away Kit Leaked

An image allegedly showing the new Adidas New York City FC away kit for the 2016 MLS season has been doing the rounds on Twitter and reddit today. We can reveal and prove that the image does not show the actual kit.

New York City FC 2016 Away Jersey

This is not the 2016 New York City FC away shirt.

Although the colors used for the supposed new New York City away shirt are accurate, the 'leaked' picture is simply a photoshopped image based on the new Adidas Condivo 16 teamwear template. In fact, the base image was taken directly off the Pro-Direct Soccer store before being altered, as our screenshot below shows.

Several sources additionally cited club contacts to further confirm that the picture does indeed not show the real shirt.
