Manchester City have launched their new away strip for the upcoming season – with the aim of supporting safe water initiatives around the world.
The white Puma kit, modelled by Kyle Walker and Oleksandr Zinchenko at the Etihad Stadium, wants to draw awareness to the fact one in three people globally lack access to safe drinking water.
The Premier League champions’ Cityzens Giving charity and the club’s water technology partner Xylem have teamed up with Puma to produce the kit while using as little water as possible.
Globally, 1 in 3 people worldwide lack access to safe drinking water, so City and Puma say the ambition is to reach over 10,000 young people in three continents, focusing on Manchester, Sao Paolo, Buenos Aires and Mumbai. The program has already started with the creation of a clean water tower in Mumbai, producing a safe and long-term supply of fresh drinking water for 1,800 people per day
