Puma's classic design pays home to City legend Colin Bell
City's new home kit for the 2022/23 season has been formally revealed today, and the classic design by Puma pays homage to club legend Colin Bell.
The kit features the club badge in the centre of the jersey, with a maroon and white trim around the collar and sleeves, and has had an overwhelmingly positive response from fans.
“The new Manchester City home kit is a fitting tribute to classic City home kits styles of the past. We wanted to create a modern spin on the jerseys worn between 1967 to 1971,” said Marco Mueller, Senior Head of Product Line Management Teamsport Apparel.
“The maroon trim was an important detail because this was an iconic colour seen on many of the previous City home kits. The jersey is a great homage to the entertaining teams of old and the exciting free-flowing football of the current City team.”
Jon Bell, Colin’s son, said, “As a family, we’re incredibly touched that the Club and PUMA have chosen to remember the teams of the late 1960s and my dad with next season’s home kit – it’s a beautiful gesture.
“It really captures the history and togetherness of Manchester City as a club, and I hope the fans like it and can remember those great moments.”
