Following the recent surge in demand by fans for the 1950’s-style blue-and-white striped scarf that is fast becoming the non-official trademark of new manager Roberto Mancini, Manchester City are putting the scarf on general sale.
The scarf was originally produced as a complimentary gift to give to season ticket holders. But since the manager has donned it on the touchlines during City’s last four wins, it would appear that Mancini has brought a touch of ‘bellissimo’ to the club, both on and off the pitch.
Dave Heed, Senior Buyer for City, said: “Following the phenomenal response from fans, we have worked around the clock to get the scarves produced as fast as possible in order to meet the current demand. We are delighted to now be able to offer all our fans a piece of Manchester City’s proud history.”
Fashion conscious Blues fans can look forward to the scarf going on general sale in the Citystores at the stadium and the Arndale centre, as well as via the club’s official website www.mcfc.co.uk/shop, priced £8.
