Ahead of being worn at the 2014 World Cup, the new Italy national team kit will go on tour across the peninsula.
This week has seen PUMA unveil the new official home and away kits for the Italian national team, which will be worn in this evening’s international friendly with Spain and then up to and during the World Cup in Brazil.
But, before flying out with the team to South America, the 23 home shirts to be worn have been placed by the players in a “Celebri-Amo La Maglia Tour” truck, where they will be taken across Italy to cities including Milan, Naples and Rome to ‘give fans the opportunity to show their support to the team’.
Handling a bespoke look and feel with a slim fit and tailored collar and placket, the new kits include final design details such as a tailor made looking crest and the exclusive FIGC font inspired by traditional Italian craftsmanship.
The new kits will make their competitive debut this summer in Group D of the World Cup, when Italy face Roy Hodgson’s England on June 14. Uruguay and Costa Rica complete the opening round for Cesare Prandelli’s men.
