Man City's Jaw-Dropping Third Kit 'Draws From Key Moment In The Club's History'
Manchester City have released their third kit for the upcoming season and it's the stuff dreams are made of.
The champions will be looking forward to the upcoming campaign in the knowledge that they completely smashed it out of the park last season, winning the title at a canter and breaking points and goal records along the way.
This team will go down as one of the best in English football's history, up there with the likes of Arsenal of 2004 and Manchester United of 1999.
But despite clearly living in their glory years currently, it's not stopped them from recognising their recent history with this slick design. It's made in memory of the 1998/9 away shirt they wore in a historic game against Gillingham. It was the Second Division play-off final, which they won at Wembley and made an immediate return to Division One.

In the game, City were two goals down to the Gills, but then scored two goals in injury time, before going on to win the match on penalties.
Any excuse for this glorious design, eh?

The club website goes on to say: "The new kit will be worn for the first time during the Club's US pre-season tours - the women when they play against against Lyon in Miami on 26th July, and the men against Liverpool in New York on 25th July."
This means we are only days away from seeing this thing of beauty worn by the players.
The reaction has been great.
