New shirts paraded at York Minster

2nd July 2019

The club's new replica kit for the 2019/20 season was unveiled today at York's most iconic landmark, the Minster.

The kit, produced by Under Armour and sponsored by JM Packaging, features the iconic 'Y-Front' design originally worn by City teams in the 1970s.

Supporters voted online for the home design in March and opted for a navy blue Y-Front on a red shirt. The home shorts are navy blue and the socks are white.

City's away kit next season features a white Y-Front on a navy blue shirt. The shorts and socks are also navy blue.

City's third choice kit features a maroon Y-Front on a white shirt. The shorts and socks for the third choice kit are also white.

City, who are nicknamed 'The Minstermen', will be wearing the new home kit for the first time next Wednesday night (July 10) in a pre-season friendly against Leeds United at Bootham Crescent (kick-off 7pm)

All new shirts will be on sale priced £39.99 (adults) and £29.99 (Juniors) at the Club Shop from 10am on Monday morning (July 8).

Season ticket holders can claim 10% off the new shirts in the club shop!

Commenting on the launch, Chris Pegg, City's Commercial Manager said: “We are delighted to be launching our new kits for the 2019/20 season and can’t wait to see the team as well as supporters from all generations wearing the shirts in the new season.

“It is especially exciting to launch our new kit at the iconic York Minster that lends itself to our nickname – many thanks to the Dean and Chapter for their kind welcome.

“Despite fire, wars and the impact of time; York Minster continues to sit proudly with visitors flocking from far and wide to view the beauty and historical significance that this building brings. After a couple of tough seasons, hopefully the club can take inspiration."

A spokesperson on behalf of York Minster said “We were delighted when York City approached us to do the kit launch at the Minster and were more than happy to help.

"We hope the players can be inspired by the city’s magnificent cathedral and we would like to pass on our best wishes to the Minstermen for the forthcoming season."

The club would like to thank York Minster for hosting today's launch. York residents can visit this magnificent place for free all year round with proof of address.
