AS Roma is proud to reveal the new Nike home kit for the forthcoming campaign.
For the 2016-17 season the club will play in a new strip that contains a nod to the city’s iconic Colosseum.
The entire body of the shirt is red and features dark red horizontal pinstripes - which get thicker as they progress further down the strip - while a diagonal line cuts across them from the left shoulder to the right hip.
This diagonal line proudly reflects the Colosseum in its current state.
The shirt also boasts a modern v-neck collar with a yellow band at the back, with ‘AS Roma’ written on the band.
For the first time in 18 years the shirt is accompanied by matching red shorts.
Both the shirt and the shorts contain bold flashes of yellow down the flanks, which are designed to expand subtly yet distinctively when the player is in motion to provide greater ventilation.
Meanwhile the new home socks are yellow with a red linear graphic on the calf; contrasting with the shirt and shorts they highlight the most dynamic part of the footballer’s body - the lower legs - to accentuate the sense of speed while also providing a final flourish of colour.
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 7 July from nike.com, asromastore.com, in Roma Stores and from selected official Nike retailers.
