Home Kit

Inspired by Manchester’s historic textile industry, the kit features an undulating woven texture.  While the decals are an homage to City’s academy grounds which once ran purple with the dye from the mills.

Away Kit

The away kit pays homage to the 'Madchester' music scene of the late eighties – drawing it's inspiration from the legendary Hacienda Club. To celebrate the story we brought this twentieth century icon back to life, recreating it with a bold yet minimalist set design – featuring the colours, the columns, and stripes of the famous club.
