Cape Town - Manchester City have unveiled their new kit for the upcoming 2016/17 season along with a fresh look to the club's badge.

"The new badge, lauded as a “modern original”, marks a return to its historical round shape and features a series of iconic Manchester symbols - the ship, the three rivers and the red rose of Lancashire," read the statement on the club's website.

"For the first time the Club has included the year of its foundation - 1894 - as a nod to its rich history within the Manchester community.

The badge was first unveiled to fans on Boxing Day 2015, following a 30-day consultation period with Cityzens supporters, which revealed resounding support for the badge to evolve.

"Supporters also had a say on the shape, colours and elements featured on the badge and all of their feedback was used to help shape what the badge today looks like."

With a new manager in Pep Guardiola, City fans will be hoping the new kit and badge will be the start of an exciting campaign and reign supreme in Manchester.

"The new home kit combines the club’s traditional City blue with darker blue detailing that takes its cues from the colour of the new crest’s text and trim," continued the statement.

"Befitting Guardiola’s renowned attention to detail, the Club’s new match and training apparel incorporates cutting-edge Nike AeroSwift technology designed to enhance mobility, reduce weight and remove the distractions that hamper performance.
