AS Roma present 2018-19 Nike home kit

The club are delighted to unveil the new Nike home strip for the 2018-19 season, featuring Main Global Partner Qatar Airways.

The shirt, inspired by the ancient history of Rome, features a chainmail armour design across the front of the shirt – links that symbolise the unbreakable bond between AS Roma, the city and the club’s fans around the world.

The new shirt goes on sale from Thursday 17 May, at asromastore.com, AS Roma Stores and nike.com.

It will be worn for the first time on Sunday, as the Giallorossi host Juventus in the final home game of the current Serie A campaign.

The distinctive chainmail design – known as the lorica hamata – occupies the whole front of the shirt, giving the impression of a suit of armour as the players enter the pitch.

The same intense red completes the rest of the kit, with different tones on the sleeve adding a modern touch.

The Nike swoosh and crewneck collar add flashes of yellow, ensuring the club and city’s famous colours are on full show.
