The brand new 2023/24 Manchester City home shirt will not be worn in either of their two showpiece final fixtures in June, the club have confirmed.

Earlier this month City released their latest PUMA-designed kit for the forthcoming season, with a shirt and promotional campaign centred around the 20th anniversary of the club playing their home matches at the now-named Etihad Stadium.

As such, the early release sparked conversation as to whether supporters would catch a glimpse of the new kit in any of the remaining matches this season – specifically either of the upcoming cup finals.

Manchester City take on Manchester United in the Emirates FA Cup final on Saturday 3 June, before travelling to Istanbul in Turkey a week later for the UEFA Champions League final against Serie A giants Inter.

With a moment in history pending as City edge closer towards a staggering treble achievement, the club have now confirmed what kits will be worn in the remaining three matches this season – including the final fixture in the Premier League.

Pep Guardiola and his players close out the 2022/23 season at Brentford on Sunday afternoon, and Manchester City have now revealed that the contest will be the debut of the brand new Etihad Stadium-inspired 2023/24 home kit.

However, as part of the same announcement, Manchester City have also confirmed that they will then revert back to the 2022/23 kit for both the Emirates FA Cup and UEFA Champions League finals in London and Istanbul respectively.

The release of the home shirt for next season has proven to be a major hit amongst supporters.

According to information provided by journalist Mike Minay in recent days, Manchester City saw a new 2023/24 home shirt bought every 12 seconds upon it’s initial release last Friday.

As such, that sales rate ended up breaking the club record for most shirts sold on a release day, and saw a 58% increase on the previous best in the 2022/23 season.
