New season, new drip for the Giallorossi

Nike has given the iconic Giallorossi design a new feel with the introduction of a striking lightning bolt across the collar and sleeve cuffs of the all-new AS Roma 2019/20 home shirt.

The lightning motif is included in an otherwise clean and classic design for the Giallorossi, serving as a nod to Rome’s mythological past and a symbol of the Roman god of the sky, Jupiter.

“Roman mythology and its influence on Roman identity played a huge part in the concept. This year, Jupiter was our focus, and the lightning bolt was an obvious and powerful symbol to use,” explains Pete Hoppins, Nike Football Apparel Senior Design Director.

The new kit will be worn by both the club’s men’s and women’s team, with head to toe look is completed by white shorts and red socks – which also feature a lightning bolt.

The AS Roma men’s team will debut the shirt for their final game of the season this weekend on May 26th.

The 2019-20 AS Roma home kit will be available now on and in official retailers.
