Fabrics made from recycled plastic bottles that are melted down were used to make the shirt, shorts and socks of the new kit
After losing the English Premier League trophy to Chelsea, Manchester City is getting set for the new season, hoping to become EPL champions again.
The Citizens have unveiled their new home kit ahead of the season and it is a throwback of Manchester City's outfit between 1975 and 1981.
This new kit which is the third home kit made by current suppliers Nike features a full plain white collar.
Nike says the shirt is in the club’s iconic sky blue with a contemporary, slim white polo neck collar finished with concealed buttons beneath the placket.
This detail they say is a strong visual reference to Manchester’s take on casual wear — structured yet laidback, and heavily influenced by the aesthetics synonymous with the city’s legendary music and fashion scenes.
A host of first team stars Wilfried Bony and defender Pablo Zabaleta are seen modelling the new kit in the promotional materials.
Fabrics made from recycled plastic bottles that are melted down were used to make the shirt, shorts and socks of the new kit.
Each kit is made using an average of 18 recycled plastic bottles.
City's first EPL game against of the new season will be a trip to West Bromwich.
