- Manchester City’s new 2022-23 kit has been leaked on the Puma website
- A photo showed Phil Foden, Jack Grealish and Vicky Losasda modelling the shirt
- Puma have since taken down the picture, showing a shirt with maroon details
- Supporters are impressed with the design, with some hailing it as ‘class’
Manchester City’s 2022-23 kit appears to have been leaked on Puma’s website ahead of its official release after a photo was uploaded of Phil Foden, Jack Grealish and women’s star Vicky Losada modelling the new design.
The picture – which has now been taken down – was seen in the header photo on the Man City section of Puma’s site, showing off a striking new design with maroon details on the collar and sleeves, modelled by Foden, team-mate Grealish and Losada standing either side of him.
Interestingly, the design has shifted City’s club logo and manufacturing logo to the centre with the shirt sponsor Etihad Airways and the Puma icon both in navy, after previously being white.

Supporters are loving the kit and are already excited about incoming signing Erling Haaland wearing it next season
Puma had previously teased that a new kit would be dropping on May 19 in just two days’ time after uploading a video showing highlights of City legend Colin Bell with the caption ‘The King’, suggesting that the new shirt will be inspired by his iconic era and historic designs of the past.
The initial photo shows Foden standing in the centre with his arms behind his back, wearing the new shirt with a necklace dangling on top and cream trousers.
Team-mate Grealish stands just behind him to the left, wearing his kit on top of a hoodie – while Losada models the kit with matching maroon hat and coat. The three stand in front of a huge flag with the maroon colour and other traditional City colours, including blue and white.
Sportsmail has approached Puma for comment.
Maroon has previously been used in City shirts in the past, with the colour seen primarily in away kits throughout the years.
Fans look to have been won over by the new kit – with some calling it ‘class’ and others hailing it as ‘our best kit in years’ and many salivating at the prospect of incoming signing Erling Haaland wearing it.
‘This is so fire, I can imagine Erling Haaland in it,’ wrote one fan.
Another gave a optimistic view about City’s prospects for next season wearing the shirt, writing: ‘Giving me retro vibes. Gonna be class when we lift the quadruple next season.’
Man City will likely play in their 2021-22 kit for the final time against Aston Villa on Sunday
‘Definitely digging this one,’ said another supporter. ‘Getting Foden’s name on the home kit, Haaland on the away kit. Take mah money.’
Another gave the thumbs up to the kit, saying: ‘Badge in the middle this time. Flecks of maroon. Class. Best one yet for me.’
One fan wasn’t too pleased with the placement of the badge centrally, however, saying it could be ‘the best home kit if the badge wasn’t in the middle’.
City are in the hunt for their eighth Premier League title ahead of their final day game against Aston Villa at the Etihad Stadium next Sunday.
Pep Guardiola’s men will likely wear their 2021-22 kit for the final time during that game as they look to keep their distance to rivals Liverpool. Jurgen Klopp’s men could go one point behind City on the final day if they beat Southampton in midweek.
