High Flying Blues: after revealing the new home shirt this morning, we thought you might also like to see what the current Premier League Champions will look like on the road next season. Here's the new Manchester City 2012 away shirt modelled by Noel Gallagher and club captain Vincent Kompany.
The two MCFC icons met at the Rock Werchter festival in Brussels at the weekend, where Vincent introduced Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds to his hometown crowd. City and Umbro travelled over to the festival with top photographer Kevin Cummins, who snapped these great pictures of Noel and Vincent together after the show.
Speaking about the new home and away kits, lifelong City fan Noel Gallagher said: “The new home kit is pure class. It might be the best one we’ve had in a decade. As modern and radical as it is though, it’s nice to see Umbro keeping our heritage alive in the new away kit. The best dressed defending champions of all time? No doubt.”The new maroon away shirt will be worn by Manchester City's players and supporters as they look to defend their title throughout the 2012/13 season. Celebrating the club's supporters around the world, Umbro and Manchester City recently asked them to Show Your City and come up ideas for how to launch the club's stylish new kits - we'll have the exciting unveiling of the winning ideas very soon!
The new Manchester City 2012 Away kit will be available to pre-order from here on Umbro.com from Saturday 7th July, and it goes on sale on 14th July. We can't wait to see them on display around Manchester, and beyond!
