AS Roma unveiled their 2014/15 away jersey today and plan to wear it against Liverpool in the first game of their U.S. tour on Wednesday at Fenway Park. The white jersey with diagonal sash takes its inspiration from the Roma jerseys of the 1960’s.
After wearing brandless jerseys last season, Roma signed with Nike last year. This is the first away jersey designed by Nike for the club. The jersey includes the updated club crest as well.
The white jersey features a yellow-and-red sash running diagonally from the left shoulder to the right hip. The sash runs over the heart and the vertical slope of the 2-color sash provides a great contrast to the horizontal colors in the team badge. The black outline of the crest also helps it stand out.
The v-neck collar has red trim at the back of the neck and white trim in the front. Similar to the AS Roma home jersey, the away features a red pennant inside the collar with the club motto ‘La Roma Non Si Discute Si Ama’ (Roma is loved without any question).
The clean look includes a wide cuff in white and a solid white back.
The kit is completed with white shorts and white socks. The socks include AS Roma and the Nike swoosh on the front and wide stripe of tonal chevrons on the back.
