AS Roma can officially unveil the club’s away kit for the 2016-17 campaign.
The new away kit is designed in a distinctive, warmer shade of white, one inspired by the colour of Rome’s cityscape and its ancient and iconic architecture.
The kit reflects both the beautiful mosaic of colours seen from the rooftops in Rome, and the marble, sand and stone used to build the ancient structures in the Roman Forum and all across the city.
The new away shirt is entirely in this new shade of marble white and boasts a modern crew-neck collar with a red band at the back, with ‘AS Roma’ etched on the shirt collar.
The sleeves and shoulders are also marble white, but in a separate panel that helps emphasise the power of the shoulders.
The new away shirt also welcomes the return of Roma’s traditional wolf head emblem, the Lupetto, for the first time since 2012.
This classic design features the head of the wolf, an animal with a long and historic association with the city of Rome, inside a circle with a red and yellow trim. It was the club’s main crest for nineteen seasons from 1978-79 to 1996-97.
The badge’s return honours the 90th anniversary of the club’s foundation in 1927.
The sides of the kit have a red stripe that runs the length of the shirt which, like the corresponding panels in the home shirt, expand when the player is in motion to provide greater ventilation - while also revealing bold flashes of yellow in the mesh.
The shorts and new away socks are also marble white, with red linear details on both garments.
While this new kit acts as a proud symbol of the club, it has also been designed with performance in mind. It boasts the latest Nike innovations in technology, fabric construction and moisture management to allow players to play fast and perform at their absolute best.
The new home strip will be available from 28 July from nike.com, asromastore.com, in Roma Stores and from selected official Nike retailers.
