As well as bringing the team into worldwide football focus the signing of Frank Lampard also highlighted the connection between NYCFC and Manchester City. Upon agreeing to join this MLS team Lampard was instantly loaned to Man City, a controversial move meaning that he would play against his long-term employer and fellow Premier League teammates at Chelsea football club.
As previously stated the New York City home jersey is sky blue in color with white accents. The three official colors of the club are navy, sky blue and orange. The NYCFC crest was designed by Rafael Esquer, two designs were put to a public vote. A simple circular design featuring all three colors and a white ‘NYC’ combined in the center was chosen, and features on the team’s shirts, training kit and accessories. Another similarity between the New York City jerseys and the shirts worn at Manchester City is the Etihad Airways sponsorship.
