PUMA today unveiled the new AC Milan away kit to be worn by the Men’s, Women’s and youth teams throughout the 2021/22 football season. The special new golden kit celebrates the work of Fondazione Milan, AC Milan’s charity, with the words “Fondazione Milan” printed under the collar on the back of the shirt. The new away jersey also features a striking all-over pattern inspired by six cities across the world involved in a charitable initiative that will officially launch in September.
The 21/22 I Rossoneri alternate kit represents Milan’s impact from Milan to Italy to the World. AC Milan brings people together from different cultures, languages and ages as the club continues to expand its impact across the globe. Milan’s unbreakable bond with the team and the city sends an inclusive message to over 500 million Rossoneri fans worldwide, uniting people from the walls of the San Siro to the streets of Rio and beyond.
“AC Milan connects so many people across the world through football and charitable projects, so we wanted to pay tribute to this with the design of the shirt. The idea behind the bespoke graphic integrated into the jersey was to give each city connected to the Fondazione its own identity,” said Nick Willems, Graphic Designer Teamsport Apparel.
“We placed distinct graphics created for each city inside outlines of those cities. We then added those graphics into a repeat pattern to connect all of the cities, symbolizing the strength of AC Milan and of the Fondazione.”
The AC Milan 2021/22 away jersey combines 100% recycled polyester with advanced PUMA dryCELL thermoregulation technology to ensure uncompromising fit and mobility, keeping the athlete dry and comfortable. The jersey integrates an Ultra-light jacquard structure into the back of the jersey to enhance breathability during intense performance.
