AS Roma are delighted to unveil the club’s New Balance away kit for the 2021-22 season.
The shirt, the first away kit collaboration between the club and the world-renowned sports manufacturer, is an eye-catching new uniform that reinterprets a classic design from the Giallorossi’s illustrious history.
It will be worn for the first time on Thursday, as José Mourinho’s side make their debut in the UEFA Europa Conference League against Turkish side Trabzonspor.
The new away shirt draws inspiration from the club’s 1978-79 away kit, a striking look which marked the beginning of one of the most successful chapters in the club’s history.
Mirroring the atmosphere of the Curva Sud and its sea of flags and banners – the away strip’s colour palette echoes the heartbeat of the Stadio Olimpico.
The premium all-white design features contrast ribboning on the cuffs and reverse collar in yellow, red, and orange – celebrating and highlighting the globally recognised colours of the Giallorossi.
Elisa Bartoli, captain of AS Roma Women, said: "We feel the spirit of Curva Sud everywhere we go, and this new away jersey represents the passion of AS Roma fans all over the world.”
Shorts and socks in matching tones complete the look, whilst an engineered body map is included on the reverse for ventilation and moisture-wicking,
The goalkeeper kit, meanwhile, arrives in orange with a yellow speckled graphic.
New Balance has applied cutting-edge design technology across all 2021-22 jerseys to ensure superior performance.
Developed using NB Dry, the kits are engineered to help keep players fresh and dry from the first to the final whistle.
“New Balance is inspired by AS Roma’s incredible history and the unwavering support shown by the fanbase,” said Kenny McCallum, General Manager of New Balance Football.
“The club and its supporters have an incredible bond, and our first away jersey recognises their great contribution to the team.”
The release is part of New Balance’s ‘Only Roma’ campaign for the season ahead, in recognition of Roma as a way of life.
It is available to pre-order from this Thursday (August 19) at the club’s official store – both online and in physical locations around Rome.
