Roma present new home shirt

Roma have presented their home kit for next season, which includes lightning bolts on the shirt’s collar and sleeves.

The jersey sticks with the tried-and-tested formula of red with yellow trim, but most striking is the inclusion of bolts around the neck, inspired by Roman god of the sky Jupiter.

White shorts also make a return, while the socks are red with a lightning bolt going through the middle.

“Roman mythology and its influence on Roman identity played a huge part in the concept,” Pete Hoppins, Nike Football Apparel Senior Design Director, told the club’s official website.

“This year, Jupiter was our focus, and the lightning bolt was an obvious and powerful symbol to hone in on.”

The kit will be debuted by the Giallorossi against Parma this weekend and goes on sale today.
