The new Manchester City 16-17 away kit returns to a popular color combination for the club in black and purple, combined with yellow accents. Made by Nike and featuring Etihad Airways as sponsor, the Manchester City 2016-17 away shirt was released on July 24.
Black and purple are the primary colors used for the Manchester City 2016-17 away shirt, recalling a popular set of colors that was often used for Manchester City away kits in the past, most times in a striped design. The new Manchester City logo can be seen on Manchester City's 16-17 away kit in a monochromatic yellow version. A modern v-collar rounds off the design.
Manchester City last donned the colors black and red in the 2011-12 season with Umbro, and then they also combined the kit with yellow for sponsor logos.
The shorts of the Nike Manchester City 2016-2017 away kit are black, while the socks are yellow, similar to Nike's Inter home kit and in line with the brand's latest trends.
