Melbourne City lift lid on new kit range

Melbourne City have included a black alternate jersey among a trio of new kits for the Hyundai A-League 2018/19 Season.

The club launched its look for the upcoming campaign at a Nike event in Melbourne on Friday.

Star signing Riley McGree was front and centre to the unveiling in a familiar blue home shirt with a new white neckline.

City have also retained the traditional red and white striped away strip, harking back to the origins established by Melbourne Heart.

But an eye-catching black third kit is undoubtedly set to create the most waves.

It's the first time last season's semi-finalists have adopted a third jersey, and is sure to prove a massive hit with supporters.

The full range of merchandise, including training tops, is available for purchase online through City's official club shop.

McGree, Bruno Fornaroli and team-mates will get their first chance to try out the new threads at home to Newcastle Jets in the FFA Cup Round of 16 on August 29.

Their Hyundai A-League campaign gets underway with a derby date against Melbourne Victory on October 20.
