Wow. Those are bright.

Manchester City have unveiled their third kit for the 2015-16 season and it is out there.

We have seen a trend of Premier League teams using green for their away jerseys this season, with Stoke City, Swansea City and Southampton just some of the clubs who have tried to blend into the pitch to hide from opponents (that’s what we’re assuming here at PST) but there’s no chance of not spotting City’s players in this new jersey.

Modeled and unveiled by new $86 million signing Kevin de Bruyne at the club store on Thursday, the new jerseys are named “Night Rising” and inspired by City’s dramatic third-tier playoff win against Gillingham back in 1999 which was the start of an incredible journey back up to the top-flight after one of English soccer’s sleeping giants had slipped down the pyramid.

They will be available to buy from October 1 and City will wear them for the first time at Sunderland on Sept. 22 in the League Cup third round.

Courtesy of the folks over at Man City, here are a few snaps of the new kit. What do you think?
