Fresh of their maiden season, the FC Internazionale Milano’s women’s team debuted the club’s 2019/20 home kit earlier today.
The design of the new shirt takes inspiration from the classic away kit the Nerazzurri wore during the 1989-90 season.
“Inter has an incredible home identity, so the challenge was to execute their iconic stripes in a modern and disruptive way, while also respecting their rich tradition,” said Pete Hoppins, Nike Football Apparel Senior Design Director.
“We looked back at the iconic diagonal stripes used on the away jersey in 1989 as well as the old club crest and it led us to this very classic design with a break of diagonal stripes across the chest.”
Diagonal stripes were also a key element of a former club crest used between 1978 and 1988, and for the 2019-20 season these form the focal point of the shirt.
The kit is completed by black shorts and colour blocked socks – half black, half blue – taken directly from the neck of the Biscione, an enduring club symbol.
An elevated trim ensures the Inter crest really stands out, and inside the jersey is a tribute to more Inter heritage via a St George’s Cross, to highlight the club’s connection to the city of Milan, the word “Internazionale” and the year 1908, Inter’s founding year.
Inter’s men’s team will wear the kit for the first time in their final Italian Serie A game of the current season on May 26 against Empoli.
