Premier League champions Manchester City have unveiled their 2018/19 Nike away kit, which draws inspiration from "the most important game in the club's history".

City unveiled their new away strip on Tuesday, saying that it pays homage to their play-off final win at Gillingham in 1998/99, which saw them gain promotion to Division One.

"The 2018/19 away kits for Manchester City FC harks back to two decades ago, when the 1998/99 squad won what many consider as the most important game in the club's history, and sparked the modern-day revival of its winning ways," an official statement from Nike read.

"The dark blue shirt with field blue and yellow pinstripes down the front and back recall the club's away shirt for a play-off final against Gillingham. After being down 2-0 at the end of normal time, City scored two dramatic injury-time goals and later won the match on penalties, taking them back up to Division One.

"Volt-coloured socks with a dark blue band around the shin completes the fresh look for the Premier League champions."

Four participants from the City in the Community programme in New York City were also part of the kit launch, with these kids having found greater opportunities in football after Manchester City dedicated a rooftop pitch at their Harlem-based school, Lexington Academy, in 2010.

City will wear their new away kit for the first time in their friendly against Liverpool on Thursday morning.
