Manchester City FC 2014/2016 UEFA Champions League Font

The kits of Manchester City FC for the 2014 to 2016 seasons is supplied by Nike. Manchester City uses the Premier League font on the kits it uses in the English Premier League but uses a different font on its UEFA Champions League kits. 



The Manchester City FC Champions League 2014/2016 font contains the complete Latin 1 alphabet, two sets of numbers, some symbols and a wide range of accented letters or diacritics as follows (shown here in Verdana): 



The numbers in the Manchester City FC Champions League kits has an inline. To make this work as intended in a digital font, the inline has to be separated from the base character. Separating the inline created an outline version of the number. The base numbers, which is the solid or plain numbers, are found in the normal number positions, namely, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 0. The outline characters are in the Shift + number positions. This is done by pressing the Shift key, holding the Shift key down, and then pressing the key of the number that you wanted to use. The outlined numbers are generated by using the following keys: !, @, #, $, %, ^, &, *, ( and ) representing the outlined version of numbers 1 to 0, respectively. The instruction on how to create numbers with an inline is included as text file in the font download.

A preview font with very limited glyph set is available for download to give you a chance to test the font. The instructions on how to get the full font is indicated in the copyright field of the preview font and in a text file included in the preview font download pack.
