Nike Release Manchester City Mashup Kit Celebrating Six Year Partnership

Nike Release Manchester City Mashup Kit Celebrating Six Year Partnership

Nike have continued their recent tradition of mashing up kits with Manchester City following Barcelona and Inter but the Premier League club's version hasn't gone down too well with fans.

Whether it's a classic Fiorentina sponsored by Nintendo or a more recent Nigeria from last summer's World Cup number every football fan loves a beautiful looking new kit.

Footballing nostalgia is something else that fans love tapping into. Whether your team is better or worse now than it was 10 or so years ago it's difficult not to think about it with weird rose tinted glasses.

Manchester City fans who remember their team being rubbish in the 90s will obviously prefer their team now but how can't they enjoy reminiscing about Georgi Kinkladze, Uwe Rosler and the Whitley brothers.

To that end Nike have recently mixed kits with nostalgia by releasing mash up kits celebrating their partnerships with Inter and Barcelona.

Now the kit manufacturer have done the same with Premier League champions Manchester City. The American company have made nine kits in six years for Pep Guardiola's team but will make way for Puma next season.

They've mashed up all the kits for their new invention but it's not gone down great with fans:


It looks like Nike will only produce 6000 of the shirts, which will be individually numbered, so that's certainly one reason for fans to get their hands on them.

The team will wear them as a pre match warm up shirt for their Premier League clash with Fulham on Saturday and then will continue to wear them for the rest of the season.

There's definitely not as long a relationship between the Manchester club and Nike as the ones between the kit company and their previous mash up clubs, who have been able to pick from a larger range of shirts.

City potentially have 15 more games of the season remaining to complete an incredible and historic quadruple.

Can Pep Guardiola's side sign off their partnership with Nike by completing the most remarkable season in Premier League history?
