Nike Football has launched the AS Roma 2018/19 home kit. The new I Giallorossi (The Yellow and Reds) primary jersey is sponsored by Qatar Airways. It is the first ASR shirt that will be sponsored for an entire season since 2013.
Lorica Hamata, the chainmail armor worn by soldiers in ancient Rome, forms the graphic base of AS Roma’s 2018/19 home kit. As rendered, the links on the Giallorossi shirt represent the unbreakable bond between AS Roma, the city and the club’s fans all over the world.
The kit maintains AS Roma’s tradition of a burnt red base with yellow detailing. It uses a new Nike design that the American sportswear firm has assigned to all of its major sponsored federations and club.
The AS Roma 2018/19 Nike home shirt will be worn by the team for the first time in during Sunday’s Italian Serie meeting with league champions Juventus at the Stadio Olimpico. It goes on sale May 17th at World Soccer Shop, Lovell Soccer, Pro:Direct Soccer, Subside Sports, UK Soccer Shop and Kitbag.
