AC Milan gave a match debut to their 2015/16 adidas home kit during their Italian Serie A meeting with AS Roma at the San Siro on Saturday.
In the famous red and white stripes of the seven-time European and four-time world club champions, the new shirt will be available at the World Soccer Shop, Subside Sports, UK Soccer Shop and Kitbag Rossoneri stores.
According to adidas: The new jersey pays tribute to the Rossoneri colours and traditions as there’s a comeback to the standard traditional stripes (5 black and 4 red) without neglecting, however, to focus on innovation and design.
This jersey, as the other AC Milan kits of 2015/16 season, present a tag with Italian “tricolore” and a reference to the colours of Expo2015, to pay tribute to the city of Milan which – from 1st May to 31st October 2015 – host the Universal Exhibition intended to attract millions of tourists from whatever corner of the world.
This jersey is a tribute to AC Milan’s tradition, characterized by regular red and black stripes, reinterpreted in a modern key. And, more than in previous years, it embodies the connection between past, present and future.
It is a strong reference to the Club soul, to his history, in a modern and elegant way in line with Club’s values.
This is the commitment of adidas and AC Milan in the creation of the jersey which mainly represent AC Milan in the world.
The Rossoneri jersey is effectively a sign of the Club’s continuity, it’s an icon merging together millions of fans worldwide, who speak different languages but who are proudly wearing the same colours.
The red colour featured in the red and black stripes is a very special red, it comes with a darker shade than in past seasons and with a melange effect that makes the jersey more elegant with a classic style through a traditional and stylish reinterpretation of the past.
The three adidas stripes are grey in order to give greater uniformity to the rest of the jersey. The grey “AC Milan” embroidery is featured on the back of the black collar, written in Milan Type, the official font of the Club.
For the second consecutive year, in line with the classic style of the jersey and to highlight the strong reference to tradition, there is the Cross of St. George, a historical element in the city of Milan Crest. The current Milan logo stands out, tone on tone, within the Cross.
The names and numbers of the players are written in Milan Type. The shorts are white with three grey stripes. The AC Milan logo is featured on the front, whereas the red adidas logo is on the back. The Rossoneri home kit is completed with black socks featuring grey details.
