Umbro set high standards with their out-of-the-box kit reveals, so we're excited to see just what they have up their sleeves for the new 11/12 Manchester City Home Shirt. All we know is that there have been some very exciting events taking place behind the scenes in recent weeks!
The new Manchester City 2011/12 Home Kit is set up as something very special, with a story of the club woven into the shirts very fabric. Here, Umbro designer and the man behind City’s shirts David Blanch gives us some insight into the idea behind the new Manchester City home shirt.
''There's something really unique about Manchester and sound. When the fans start singing Blue Moon, the energy and atmosphere changes. Lets take their energy and look at creating a new way of putting it onto a shirt. The fans are creating the new fabric for the players.''
We'll have to wait a little longer (not too long!) for the full kit reveal. The countdown has begun and we can only guess what Umbro have in store for us! Incorporating the sound and energy of Manchester into a football shirt – sounds exciting!
