Roma's New Away Shirt Is A Real Contender For Kit Of The Season

AS Roma have dropped their new away kit for the 2019/20 season and it might just be the sauciest kit of the year so far.

Inspired by Jupiter, the Roman God of the Sky, the lightning bolt design takes centre stage from the left shoulder to the right hip as the classic crimson and orange colours create a stunning effect.

Nike have absolutely nailed this one.

Pete Hoppins, Nike Football Apparel Senior Design Director, spoke about the design on Nike's official website.

"When you combine Roma's famous colors with the depth of the city's mythology then you have a really potent mix," he said.

"The lightning theme is a powerful concept for 2019-20, and I think both the home and away kits give fresh takes while staying true to the club's identity."

Nike revealed the design for AS Roma's new home kit last month, with the dynamic lightning bolt detail featuring again across the collar and sleeves.

"The symbol is associated with the Roman god of the sky, Jupiter, and lights up an otherwise classic Giallorossi design." says the official website.

Another classic.
