An Oasis-themed Manchester City kit is rumoured to be coming next season for a special anniversary

This thing will sell out in the blink of an eye.

With the end of the season fast approaching, we’re already looking towards the 2024/25 campaign and ready to fall in love with a whole new raft of football kits, so when we heard a special Oasis-inspired Manchester City shirt is rumoured to be on the way, our ears pricked up.

The love affair between the legendary Britpop and Man City is long-standing, with both Gallaghers and the band as a whole collaborating on everything from kit launches, adverts, documentaries and the legendary Maine Road gigs down the years, not to mention countless unofficial fashion crossovers.

If you see someone out and about wearing a bit of band merch, you’ll often see them wearing it in their beloved sky blue, but for fans of the Burnage boys and the club, it sounds like you’ll soon be able to buy an official Oasis x Man City kit.

According to reliable football fashion outlet, Footy Headlines, the treble-winners could be following up what would be a record-breaking fourth consecutive title with a limited edition Oasis-themed fourth kit for the 30th anniversary of their seminal debut album, Definitely Maybe.

Also reported by The Daily Star, the special kit which would be in rotation for the 24/25 season proper is said to have been designed with help from Noel Gallagher himself, who remains a massive blue and close friend of the club.


Tunes like ‘Blue Moon Rising’ which if often sprinkled into the matchday playlist and the large cut-out of Pep Guardiola on stage at his Wythenshawe Park gig should tell you enough.

Set to be the first time City have manufactured a fourth playing kit as opposed to other one-off limited edition jerseys, the Star goes on to cite a Gallagher family source who claims that “it’s been in the works for a couple of months and Noel was absolutely chuffed to be asked.


“He’s watched City since the 1970s and the final design is almost there. [He] once had a pop at Liam when he started his clothing line, Pretty Green, but this is entirely different. Both are mad City fans but it is Noel who was asked.” As for LG himself, he is not thought to be involved in the collab.

The Bands FC crossover from a few years back. Not at all an indication of the design but the kit will be manufactured by Puma.

Sure to become an instant hit with fans and a collector’s item in the footy fashion world — we’ve already seen how well Man United’s Stone Roses crossover has turned out — you can expect these things to sell out in the blink of an eye if it comes to fruition.

You already see plenty of City and United merch across Greater Manchester on a day-to-day basis but we dare say the Oasis element would make this even more desirable to Mancs who aren’t usually as inclined to get their colours on.


We haven’t had even a glimpse of what this potential Oasis x Man City kit might look like, we don’t think it’s a particularly bold prediction to guess it’ll be light blue, but be sure to keep your eyes peeled on Footy Headlines — they’re usually pretty accurate with this stuff.

Elsewhere for the Definitely Maybe 30th anniversary, Liam will be doing his own bit to honour the groundbreaking record by playing the tracklist in full across three huge shows.
