Giallorossi gets a classy look to kick off partnership with Nike
AS Roma has finally revealed their first kit with Nike, a neat home kit to start their relationship with the American sportswear company. This Capital City Italian Serie A club agreed on a partnership with Nike in 2013 after contract negotiations with Kappa and later Macron fell apart. The club wore brandless kits this past season, and finished second.
This home kit has a very classic look. The home kit is in imperial purple with yellow trim. The polo collar is in imperial purple, and the sleeve cuffs are yellow. Inside the back neck, a pennant tab has the statement: “La Roma Non Si Discute Si Ama,” “Roma is loved without question,” the motto supporters hold dearly. Wide-spaced thin pinstripes complete the jersey. The shorts come in a classic white, and the socks are in imperial purple, with the club’s wordmark below Nike’s swoosh logo.
AS Roma last won the Serie A in the 2000-01 season, and the Coppa Italia in 2008. Despite this, they are still one of the strongest and wealthiest clubs in Italy. With the new Nike partnership intact, can Roma dethrone Juventus at the top in a Nike uniform? Let us know what you think by leaving a comment below, or on our social media pages!
