AS Roma are proud to unveil the new Nike third strip for the 2018-19 season.
The shirt – with a distinctive yellow design – will be worn for the first time when the Giallorossi face AC Milan at the San Siro on Friday evening. The kit will officially go on sale on September 12, with fans available to purchase from asromastore.com, AS Roma Stores and from nike.com.
Aside from its distinctive colour, the shirt is notable for its innovative and emotive depiction of the Rome – with aerial maps from defining eras of the ‘Eternal City’ carefully blended onto the front of the shirt. Along with the distorted map arrangement, the kit also subtly features the club’s famous Lupetto symbol – a blend that illustrates both the city’s formidable history and it’s bright future.
“For 2018-19, our third kits have been exploring the cities these clubs represent, and in the case of Rome, what really makes it special is this long and colorful history, full of myth and legend,” said Pete Hoppins, Nike Football Apparel Senior Design Director. “We really wanted to delve into that and do it justice with this design. It’s a Roma kit like no other before it.”
The kit will be worn for the first time in Milan, as Eusebio Di Francesco’s side face the Rossoneri in Serie A TIM.
