Man City’s 2017/18 home kit honors the 1967/68 jersey that lifted the English title 50 years ago. The shirt features the same clean sky blue, with added white trim around the collar. Under the stripe, additional team pride is embroidered with, “City” on the back of the neck.
2017’s badge is a salute to the city itself. The center shield is split in two, the top half featuring a golden ship representing the Manchester Ship Canal, and the bottom containing the red rose of Lancashire over 3 diagonal blue stripes—symbolic of Manchester’s 3 rivers: the Irwell, Irk, and Medlock. Surrounding the shield is a circle with the club’s name and founding year.
From its early rise to the English Premier League in 1899 to being relegated to the third division nearly a hundred years later in 1998, highs and lows are typical for Man
City. The same unpredictability that accompanies heartbreaking defeats makes the club’s victories even sweeter. The 2017/18 home kit pays tribute to one of Man City’s sweetest victories: the 1968 league final.
