Drawing inspiration from the club’s 1978/79 away kit, New Balance launch the AS Roma 21/22 away shirt, the first away shirt of the new partnership. It will be worn for the first time on Thursday, as José Mourinho’s side make their debut in the UEFA Europa Conference League against Turkish side Trabzonspor.
New Balance and Roma got off to a strong start when the club’s home shirt was met with mass approval upon its launch back in July. Now they follow up that release with the launch of the club’s new away shirt, which draws inspiration from the club’s 1978/79 away kit, a look which marked the beginning of one of the most successful chapters in the club’s history.
A clean white base is accentuated by the contrast ribboning on the cuffs and reverse collar in yellow, red, and orange – celebrating and highlighting the globally recognised colours of the Giallorossi.
Elisa Bartoli, captain of AS Roma Women, said: “We feel the spirit of Curva Sud everywhere we go, and this new away jersey represents the passion of AS Roma fans all over the world.”
Kenny McCallum, General Manager of New Balance Football said of the release: “New Balance is inspired by AS Roma’s incredible history and the unwavering support shown by the fanbase. The club and its supporters have an incredible bond, and our first away jersey recognises their great contribution to the team.”
