There are now two different types of Manchester City Tartan. Take a look at the Manchester City tartans and the scarves and bag which are now available.
Manchester City Football Club Tartan
Manchester City became the 1st Premier League club to have their own official tartan in 2014. The tartan was designed to commemorate the link between City and Scotland, in particular City’s legendary striker over the 50’s Bobby Johnstone. This official tartan, as seen in the scarf above, is titled Manchester City Football Club ” Blue Moon” tartan is registered at the official Tartan Registry.
A second Manchester City tartan has also been registered at the Tartan register. This tartan, Manchester Blues, was launched by Bernard Halford, Life President of Manchester City Football Club on 22nd July 2011 in Selkirk, when City were on a preseason tour.

Manchester City tartan: A history
I first started wearing my Ginger Wig in the 1998-99 season. Back then our Scottish players were Paul Dickov, Gary Mason (remember him?) and the least sounding Scottish person to be Scottish Andy Morrison. Morrison joining the turned out to be the catalyst to the club turning around and I was there for his debut at Oldham where in banged in a thunderous strike.
City’s connections with Scotland go back much further. Asa Hartford, Denis Law (’74) are amongst the most famous Scots to have played for City whilst Scotsman Bobby Johnstone became the first player to score in consecutive F.A. Cup Finals at Wembley for the blues.
It was through the link with Selkirk born Bobby Johnstone that the club became the first Premier League club to have its own official Tartan in 2014. Selkirk based A S Campbell designed the Tartan to commemorate the link between Scotland and City. This tartan can be seen in the official club scarves and a number of other items such as Kilts, skirts and waistcoats have been made over the years.
This is not Manchester City Tartan!
Those of you who follow me on twitter @thegingerwig or those of you who have seen me at the matches will assume that I am Scottish. I’ve had more of my share of “see you Jimmy” comments and even been called David Moyes! More of you will think why does he wear the Tartan wig with the ginger hair. I’ve once been asked if it is my real hair!
I first started wearing the ginger wig at the start of the 1998 – 99 season. Having been on a family holiday to Scotland I purchased the hat in Edinburgh and decided as a bit of a laugh to wear it to the first game of the season. After a resounding 3 nil win at Maine Road over Blackpool I decided after 2 relegations in 3 years that the hat was a lucky omen and would wear it from then on.
