The kit release is part of New Balance’s ‘Only Roma’ campaign for the season ahead, in recognition of Roma as a way of life. The design is intended to produce a timeless version of the club’s signature look.
The new design explained?
AS Roma official website said: The club’s famous colour palette is firmly on display in the rich red shades and yellow accents of the home design – the two colours being so synonymous with both Roma and the city of Rome.
"A subtle tonal pin-stripe design is also visible on the front of the shirt, which is accompanied by matching shorts."
"The unique design incorporates a v-neck collar and ribbon cuff details in yellow, whilst an outer label features the words ‘La Lupa’; a historic nickname of the Capitoline team, and a nod to the iconic female wolf symbol around which the city’s lore – and the club’s logo - is built."
Club captain Lorenzo Pellegrini has spoken about his happiness with the new kit. He said, "It's always exciting when a new kit is revealed, especially this season,” said club captain Lorenzo Pellegrini.
"The new design was popular with the team from the moment we saw it and we are all looking forward to wearing it."
