Italian Serie A club AS Roma has revealed their Nike home kit for their 2015/16 league, Coppa Italia and UEFA Champions League seasons. The latest Giallorossi (Yellow-Reds) will be available at the World Soccer Shop, Subside Sports, UK Soccer Shop and Kitbag ASR stores.
According to Nike: AS Roma is a club renowned for its storied and illustrious history, yet the 2015-16 season sees the Italian club entering an exciting new era.
For the upcoming season, AS Roma will play in a striking new kit by Nike that reflects the club’s growing confidence, as well as the respect that the team inspires in their rivals.
Taking inspiration from the armor worn by Roman soldiers, the new home kit is designed to create a powerful look on the pitch. The team will emerge from the tunnel dressed for battle, ready to perform as a legion and illustrate the strength rooted in their commitment to the collective.
The shirt is in classic AS Roma red and features a unique new crewneck collar with a small split at the front. This replicates the neckline on the iron chest armor worn by soldiers in the Roman army more than 2,000 years ago.
A darker shade of red runs along the shoulder blades and sleeves in a single panel, further enhancing the players’ physical presence.
Complementing the AS Roma red, the sleeves’ cuffs are in the club’s traditional yellow, which features stripes running down the shirt’s flanks.
The new white shorts include a yellow stripe on each side that connects with the stripe on the shirt.
For the first time, the numbers on the back of the new AS Roma shirt contain a graphic print tribute to the Italian capital’s heralded architectural wonders, ancient streets and vibrant neighborhoods, illustrating the strong bond between the club, the city and the fans.
The new home socks are entirely red with a wide tonal stripe of chevrons on the back of the calf.
