New York City FC unveils debut home shirt: It's Manchester City in disguise http://t.co/EPpvcugwSe #MCFC #NYCFC #MLS http://t.co/loYrkfEvUT

New York City FC debuted their "new" kits, and they look unsurprisingly familiar. 

They look almost exactly like Manchester City's kits. 

This, of course, makes perfect sense. After all, Manchester City owns New York City's newest Major League Soccer franchise, although few expected NYCFC to practically replicate City's kit.

The club hardly hid its aspirations, calling it "city blue," and has "NYCFC" on the inside neck and inaugural season on the lower part of the shirt. 

"It's a perfect jersey for our first year," David Villa told the team's official website. "We hope it brings a lot of luck and a lot of success."
