Alongside Nike, the club has decided to revisit an historic Roma design to create the new home kit, a kit which is uniquely, unmistakably and gloriously Giallorosso.
This summer marks 40 years since the club’s victory in the 1980 Coppa Italia, a triumph that marked a successful end to a memorable two-year period for the club where it wore the famous and distinctive gradient kit known affectionately as the ‘ghiacciolo’ (‘ice lolly’) – another beloved creation of the late Piero Gratton, the father of the Lupetto badge.
For the upcoming season, Roma players will wear a new kit that takes inspiration from that iconic design, as the squad will once again wear horizontal Giallorossi stripes across the chest.
“It’s nice to see a shirt that features Roma’s iconic colors in such an original design,” said midfielder Lorenzo Pellegrini.
“To wear a shirt inspired by such a famous kit from the club’s past will be special for both the team and the supporters.”

Roma’s new home kit comprises the traditional deep red shirt, shorts and socks. The horizontal stripes stretch across the chest of the shirt, starting in yellow and scaling upwards through orange to red.
The design is topped by a dark red panel which runs from shoulder to shoulder and encompasses a crew neck collar. The same dark red appears on the trim of the sleeves and on stripes which run down the sides of the torso.
A white squad number and yellow detailing appear on the shorts, while the deep red socks are topped with coloured hoops that match the shirt design.
The word ‘Roma’ appears on the calf, and also inside the shirt as an added detail - underlining the passion for the club and the city.
“This is a modern interpretation of one of Roma’s most famous and unconventional kits ever,” a spokesperson for Nike said.
“We’ve taken a linear gradient striped design, using a very traditional club colour palette, to create a kit which we hope the team and supporters will wear with great pride.”
The 2020-21 AS Roma home kit is available now at AS Roma Stores, asromastore.com and nike.com.
