Pep Guardiola's Manchester City have unveiled their new all-maroon Nike away kit for the 2017/18 season.

"Manchester City will wear an all-maroon away kit on their travels next season, as revealed by Danilo, Ederson, Phil Foden and Leroy Sane in Los Angeles," a statement on the club's official website read.

"With the City of Angels providing a picturesque backdrop, the quartet took a break from their pre-season preparations and headed out into the Californian sunshine to launch the 2017/18 away kit.

"Released ahead of the International Champions Cup fixture against Real Madrid, the new kit will be debuted in LA's famous Coliseum, where Pep Guardiola's men face the Spanish giants.

"This is not the first time maroon has featured in an away kit and as with many of the recent offerings, it is inspired by the club's rich history.

"Dark maroon was present on the shirt worn by the 1956 FA Cup-winning team, while it is also included on the detailing of this year's home kit as a nod to the design worn by the league title-winning side of 1967/68.

"There's also room for the colour synonymous with Manchester City, with a sky-blue trim on the shirt and socks.

"The all-maroon outfield kit will be paired with a green shirt, shorts and socks for the goalkeepers, which is sure to please the football purists.

"If the design pays reference to the past, then Nike's Aeroswift technology most certainly gives the kit a truly modern feel."
