Defending FIFA World Club Cup champions and last season’s Italian Serie A runners-up Inter Milan have released their 2011/12 Nike home kit. Here is a look at the new Nerazzurri jersey in detail along with a press release from Inter. It is now available at the World Soccer Shop, Onionbag and Subside Sports Inter Milan stores.
MILAN, 8 July 2011 — The new FC Internazionale 2011/12 kit is unveiled today. The strip is characterised by a refined, modern design using fibres made from recycled materials to reduce the impact on the environment and it can also boost the performance of the players.
“Charm, style and tradition. The new FC Internazionale collection and in particular the Nerazzurri home shirt are a tribute to the elegance and sartorial excellence that has made Milan famous throughout the world,” said Andrea Rossi, General Manager of Nike Italy. “Our constant commitment to technological innovation has allowed us to create an eco-friendly and extremely lightweight shirt which will weigh 13% less than previous shirts.”
“The launch of the new kit designed for Inter by Nike has become a pleasant tradition,” said President of FC Internazionale Massimo Moratti. “It’s a special occasion; it’s the start of a new season for all of us and particularly for the fans who love to wear the official shirt to show their allegiance to the Nerazzurri. Inter and Nike, Let’s hope for another winning partnership this time.”
The home shirt has maintained its classic blue and black stripes although they are thinner than those of previous shirts and a collar with two buttons, giving it a refined, elegant look. On the inside, at the back of the club logo, the word “Nerazzurri” is printed, while the word “Inter” appears under the collar.
This year for the first time the Inter logo has been hot-pressed to make the shirt even lighter and allow the fabric to breathe in this area.
The shorts are black with a blue stripe on both sides. The socks are also black with the word “Inter” printed on the calf to complete the strip. The shirt and shorts are particularly well finished with careful stitching.
