Manchester City Launch Nike Worker Bee Collection

Providing one last Citizen-styled offering before handing over to PUMA at the end of the season, Nike launch the Manchester City Worker Bee Collection.

Comprised of several items of lifestyle clothing, including hoodies, jackets, polos and pants, the Nike Manchester City Worker Bee collection is inspired by the culture of the city. The Worker Bee is one of the best-known symbols of Manchester and it has been an emblem for the city for over 150 years, standing for Mancunians’ hard work ethic and the city being a hive of activity.


As well as having the bee symbol appear on several of the NSW garments, the colour scheme of the collection is also influenced, dropping in black with yellow trim. The worker bee was worn by both Manchester clubs in the derby in 2017 as a sign of unity following the terror attack on the city, but this collection from Nike is for the blue half of the city only.
