AS Roma's New Away Kit Celebrates the City's Mythology

July 11, 2019 - Like AS Roma’s new home kit, the Giallorossi's 2019-20 away look is inspired by Jupiter, the Roman God of the Sky. In the design, the lightning bolt takes center stage — it runs like a sash, from the left shoulder to the right hip, jagging its way down an otherwise white shirt with vivid shades of crimson and orange. 

“When you combine Roma’s famous colors with the depth of the city’s mythology then you have a really potent mix," says Pete Hoppins, Nike Football Apparel Senior Design Director. "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."

The kit is completed by crimson shorts and white socks, which feature a yellow lightning bolt detail as well as a Nike swoosh and the words “AS Roma” midway up the shin. 

The 2019-20 AS Roma away kit is available July 12 on nike.com, asromastore.com and in official retailers.

Nike’s Brasil Copa America Jersey Celebrates a 100-Year Victory

April 09, 2019 - In 1919, Brasil hosted the first edition of Copa America. Wearing a white kit, the team made history that year by winning the tournament at home and starting a journey of victories that transformed Brazilian football into a national icon. 

Merging the early-1920s vintage feel of football with the modern style of contemporary sport, the special-edition Copa America jersey celebrates the 100th anniversary of that energetic moment. 

White pays tribute to the historic 1919 trophy. A classic polo neck, player numbers and details on the sleeves are blue.

The Brazilian National Team will debut the 2019-20 Brasil Copa America 100th Anniversary Jersey as part of a special uniform at the first match of the tournament.

Five Things Every Jets Fan Should Know About Their New Uniforms

April 04, 2019 - The New York Jets unveiled their new uniforms tonight at Gotham Hall in New York City. The three versions keep the Nike Vapor Untouchable chassis and get a modern upgrade for the franchise’s 60th season. Here are five updates to look out for:

1. A bolder green

Home, away and alternate uniforms include a green that was exclusively developed for the Jets. Also new is an all-black base for the alternate uniforms (it's the first you'll see the color since being removed from the team's palette before the 1998 season).

2. New logos

Three new logos (including “Jets” lettering on the helmets without the oval frame or the "NY" type) will appear on the team’s helmets, fan gear and related memorabilia.

3. "New York" reads on the chest

It’s the first time in team history that the city name appears on the uniform.

4. Bold, angular stripes

A new linear design, reminiscent of a jet’s flight trail, runs across the shoulders and down the pant leg. They're more than just looks: The stripes on the shoulder pads meet at the vented grille neckline for improved cooling during play.

5. Updated numbers and font

The jersey’s previous font has been updated to a new, custom typeface with sloped angles intended to evoke a feeling of motion and force.

Fan jerseys are available now on nike.com and at Nike SoHo and Nike House of Innovation.
