The back of Manchester City’s training shirts has piqued the interest of Premier League supporters. MDCR? What exactly does that imply?
Manchester City players and Pep Guardiola both wore training jerseys with MDCR on the back. Obviously, just a few fans are aware of what this could imply.
Fortunately, the internet exists, and I’m here to provide some context.
PUMA unveiled an “eclectic Madchester collection” last offseason, which City would wear during select games. While it’s unclear whether it has won over City supporters, the sportswear firm believed it would be a big hit at the time. Of course, they always do.
Here is PUMA’s explanation:
“Inspired by the generation-defining indie-dance scene that put Manchester on the map and took the world by storm, it is expected to prove extremely popular among City fans.
The Madchester product range includes a custom MCFC x MDCR Graphic Jersey, MCFC x MDCR Graphic and logo tees, as well as MCFC x MDCR crews, hoodies, jacket, shorts and pants.”
That’s all there is to it. It appears to be a representation of the growing dance music scene in the city. So, what’s the deal?
At the very least, it appears to be cool. It remains to be seen if it will appeal to fans.
