PUMA Launch The Manchester City 125th Anniversary Collection

After debuting their special edition anniversary shirt in the 2019 Community Shield victory Manchester City have launched their full 125th anniversary collection by PUMA. The commemorative capsule is inspired by the Club’s history, and features statement clothing, footwear and accessories headlined by the match day jersey.

The collection is inspired by Manchester City’s founding document, signed by Joshua Parlby in April 1894, who as a committee member and later the secretary-manager of Ardwick AFC (previously known as St. Marks) played an instrumental role to establish and incorporate Manchester City Football Club – a club with the community at its heart. The launch comes ahead of the 125th anniversary of the first game that City played, against Bury on 1st September 1894. 


The anniversary jersey worn in the 2019 Community Shield win at Wembley was designed in collaboration with the club’s fans. Supporters voted on the club’s Cityzens membership portal for their preferred crest, positioning and tone, in addition to a club symbol and commemorative text. The resulting light blue kit with white trim is strongly influenced by the club’s kit from the early 1970s and is enhanced with anniversary elements including the Club’s founding document replicated in the inside neckline and gold embroidery denoting the Club’s 125th year.

The footwear offering from the collection comes in the form of a 1960s archive silhouette; the ROMA lightweight training shoe. The PUMA ROMA X MAN CITY is a rendition of the classic style featuring a fresh, retro-inspired look in light grey suede with black layers on the toebox and heel, its black smooth Formstrip with light blue piping and a stacked sole in white with black and light blue, complimented with extra lace loops in light blue and the Club badge on the tongue label.


The anniversary off-field collection includes a fan tee, PUMA T7 track jacket, cap, ball and scarf accessories. Each piece is embellished with 125th commemorative text as PUMA make a strong start to their new partnership with Manchester City. As for that standout jersey, it's limited to just 1,894 shirts as a nod to the club's founding year.
