Manchester City’s New Third Kit Pays Tribute To Their Famous Play-Off Win In 1999

Manchester City have unveiled their new third kit for the 2015/16 season today – which pays tribute to their famous play-off final win over Gillingham in 1999.

The new Nike design draws on inspiration from the black and yellow kit worn by City at Wembley that year as they battled back from two goals down before beating Gillingham on penalties to secure promotion.

The new luminous green shirt and socks are rounded off by solid black socks – and bear a striking resemblance to some of the away kits worn by Spanish giants Barcelona in recent seasons.

Etihad new boy Kevin De Bruyne was on hand today to help promote the new launch as he modelled the kit while signing merchandise and meeting the fans.

You can check out some of the pics below.
