'Is this a joke': Some Man City fans are outraged by 'atrocity' of an announcement from club
Man City have this week unveiled their third kit to the world. And to say it’s caused controversy would be an understatement.
The club made the announcement on their official Twitter account revealing their third kit for the 2021/22 season. The extremely bold design from Puma does not even feature the Man City badge.
Indeed, multiple clubs around Europe will be wearing similar shirts. With Puma this week also announcing that sides like AC Milan, Marseille and Valencia will have the same minimalist design.
The German kit manufacturer have usually been creative with Man City. However, their approach to third shirts this season, which was also seen in the Euros for sides like Italy and Austria, has seemingly missed the mark.
Fans from every corner of the globe took to social media to criticise the designs for some of Europe’s most historic sides. To make matters worse, the kits will be retailed at full price despite their mediocre appearance.
And on social media, fans were fuming with the design, as well as the price tag for the new Man City kit despite it’s lacklustre and cheap appearance.
Here’s what some Man City fans had to say on Twitter about the new third kit…
This is the worst City kit I have ever seen. Is this a joke?….please say its a joke. I feel sorry for Phil having to model it.— Shaun Brown (@shaunyb3000) August 18, 2021

Oh my days. It's April the 1st…— Duncan Campbell (@dunccampbell) August 18, 2021
Might be the worst kit in football history— ąŋƙıɬ 🈵️ (@Audacity21) August 18, 2021
Absolutely shocking kit!!! I really hope no one buys it!! No badge 🤢🤢🤢— Lewis Brownhill (@LewBrownhill2) August 18, 2021
The worst kit ever made. For any club. Awful. The first shirt in 18 years I won't buy. It doesn't just lack the badge, it doesn't even have the actual club name on the front. A dismal kit for the failed Super League. I thought you were listening to the fans after that debacle— Marc Chadwick (@MCM1880) August 18, 2021
City will likely debut the new kit in the UEFA Champions League later in the season.
