Manchester City´s shirt sponsors and manufacturer will have their branding removed from the kit worn in the Munich anniversary derby on February 10 at Old Trafford.

The decision by Thomas and Le Coq Sportif came after talks between the companies and the supporters, and they will wear a kit that will incorporate a black ribbon of remembrance for the match against Manchester United.

Other plans for the joint marking of the 50th anniversary of the tragedy on February 6 are expected to be announced shortly, and City spokesman Paul Tyrrell told the Manchester Evening News: "After discussions with the Official Supporters Club and the Centenary Supporters Association both Thomas Cook and Le Coq Sportif offered to remove branding from the shirts."
