Parma unveil new 'antiviral' kit'

Parma have unveiled their 2020-21 home kit with black sleeves and a new innovation, using antiviral fabric to ‘protect against bacteria and viruses.’

The design by Erreà is built for the post-COVID age, as the Ti-energy material is “produced with nanoparticles of zinc oxide woven into the fibres of the shirt, which have an antibacterial effect.

“Treated with Minusnine J1, it is also extremely waterproof. This set of features allows the fabric to become an effective protective barrier against droplets, microbes, bacteria and viruses.

“Parma Calcio 1913 will be the first Serie A club to don a kit of such high technical prowess that helps protect its own players.”

The statement also notes that for the first time, the sleeves of the Parma shirt will be entirely black, carrying on the cross symbol that covers the chest.

“The back of the shirt, which is longer than the front to give it a more modern style, has the symbol of the phoenix embroidered in gold under the collar, not the Club crest, to give the symbol even more prominence.”
