Pictures of Manchester City's new away kit have been shared online and already fans are in favour.
PUMA and City are reverting back to one of the club's most iconic colour combinations for the 2022/23 season.
City are of course renowned for sky blue home shirts but when it comes to away kits, there is a strong association with the colours red and black that dates back many years.
And pictures posted online by Manchester Confidential on Twitter, taken from a shoot at Central Library in Manchester City centre show that City will be back wearing the classic colours.
The last time City had red and black on an Umbro away kit was for the striped design in 2011/12, when they won their first league title for 44 years under Roberto Mancini.
They also won the 1969 FA Cup final against Leicester City wearing red and black.
This time around, the design has diagonal stripes, with the crest and PUMA and Etihad Airways logos in yellow.
The sleeves are plain black, as is the collar, which is a v-neck design.
There aren't too many details on the kit and more leaked images will almost definitely in the coming weeks heading into next season.
But it does appear as though the strip will be a popular choice with City supporters, if social media reaction is anything to go by:
Strong rumours for months that it would be diagonal stripes. I quite like it— Wes (@bluwes) April 26, 2022
Kit is actually decent. Would prefer the stripes to be horizontal tbh but no complaints— Brian (@canceloimpact) April 26, 2022
