‘Please Be Real’: Leaked 24/25 Manchester City Away Kit is Already a Hit Among Fans

‘Please Be Real’: Leaked 24/25 Manchester City Away Kit is Already a Hit Among Fans

Manchester City are in their final push for the 2024/25 Premier League title, knowing quite well that three more wins can help them do the ‘fourpeat’ of league championships. The Cityzens can also thank their impressive away form for going strong in the title race, having won 12 of their 17 travelling fixtures.

Perhaps they can also consider their slick white away kit as a good-luck charm for their success. Puma created a rather elegant and attractive attire for them to wear on their travels, and it seems like they’re continuing his pattern with the 2042/25 kit too.

While Manchester City pushes for a domestic double in May (2024), the shirt manufacturers are hard at work in finalizing the kits for the 2024/25 season.

It appears Puma has decided to significantly change the design and colors of the away kit they’ll don in the near future.

A Manchester City away kit leak shows that they will be wearing a rather unique black and yellow attire for their travelling games next season.

The basic design of the shirt is black, with there being yellow stripes designed in the front – above and below the ‘Etihad Airways’ logo – and the stripes also continue towards the lower part of the back of the attire.

There are slight blue and yellow patterns designed into the round-neck collar and shirt sleeves for that extra glamour look. Well, it turns out that Puma is actually paying homage to a bit of a cult kit among Manchester City fans. That is because this leaked attire looks really similar to the Cityzens’ away kit for the 1998/99 season – when they won the EFL League One play-off final to gain promotion back into the Premier League.

They had worn a similar black kit with yellow stripes – which was then designed by Italian manufacturers Kappa. The unique shirt was complimented with dark blue shorts and yellow socks, and it’s unclear whether Puma will follow through with a similar idea too for the 24/25 kit.

Puma hasn’t completely ripped off Kappa’s design here, but paid a nice little tribute by giving it a more ‘modern’ look and ensuring that the Etihad Airways logo stands out in particular.

To their credit, the manufacturers appear to have hit the right chord in pleasing most of the Manchester City fans, who have grown to adore this design.

A lot of fans are appreciating how Puma has brought back a popular away kit design – albeit complaints about the ‘box’ in the Etihad Airways logo and the lack of proper design in the back of the kit. However, some rival fans are already making fun of the kit – comparing Manchester City to ripping off the Fenerbahce home kit and mocking them to looking similar to Al Ittihad too.

With that being said, one thing that is assured is Manchester City will absolutely stand out in their away fixtures with this wacky design. Footyheadlines is reporting that Puma is likely to release this attire in late July or early August – definitely before the beginning of the 2024/25 Premier League.

However, it’s unlikely to be as cheap as the 1998/99 away kit is in online stores these days.  The Cityzens’ current away kit is available for around £88 on their official website, and it’s safe to assume that the 2024/25 attire will easily cost around the £130-£150 range.

Considering how popular the away kit leak has become among the fans, Puma shouldn’t have major problems in selling them either. A lot of Manchester City fans can’t wait to get their hands on this slick kit and wear it with pride for their travels in other cities in the 2024/25 campaign.
