City Women were the first to don the new kit as they faced Sunderland Ladies in a Women Super League match on wednesday.
The shirt has been given a update with a round neck and a white trim. The kit has also got a modern twist with its innovative Aeroswift technology that enhances breathability and performance. The socks feature Nike Grip technology for improved connection between foot and boot.

“I’ve loved my first season with City,”
“We work hard to play fast, exciting and attacking football and we’re looking forward to creating winning moments for our fans.”
