Italian Serie A title favorites AC Milan have unveiled their adidas 2011/12 home kit. It is now available at the World Soccer Shop AC Milan Store.
According to kit provider adidas:
Somewhere between innovation and tradition, true to the style of adidas and AC Milan – for the 2011/12 jersey, the three-stripe label has decided to combine its most innovative technology with a design reminiscent of the Rossoneri strips of the early twentieth century.
The star models of the new kit were Rossoneri players Clarence Seedorf, Mark Van Bommel and Luca Antonini. The event was hosted by familiar television personality, and avid AC Milan fan, Daniele Bossari.
The strip will be worn for the first time on May 15th for the penultimate game of the league against Cagliari.
Design of the strip
Reverting once again to the thinner 2cm-wide stripes compared to the 9cm-wide ones of last year,there there are 21 stripes in total, 11 of which are black and 10 red.
The white crew neck stands out with three stripes on the sleeves, which are white for the first time, on a red inset. The back of the collar bears the words “Associazione Calcio Milan” underneath the Italian flag to highlight the fact that Milan is one of the best-known symbols of Italy around the world.
Reference to the colours of the Italian flag can be found on the insets at the sides on the front of the shirt as well as on the shorts and socks.
