FC Internazionale Milano 2019-20 Home Kit

May 22, 2019 - Fresh of its maiden season, the FC Internazionale Milano’s women’s team debut the club's 2019-20 home kit.

The design of the new shirt takes inspiration from the classic away kit the Nerazzurri wore during the 1989-90 season.

“Inter has an incredible home identity, so the challenge was to execute their iconic stripes in a modern and disruptive way, while also respecting their rich tradition,” said Pete Hoppins, Nike Football Apparel Senior Design Director. “We looked back at the iconic diagonal stripes used on the away jersey in 1989 as well as the old club crest and it led us to this very classic design with a break of diagonal stripes across the chest.” 

Diagonal stripes were also a key element of a former club crest used between 1978 and 1988, and for the 2019-20 season these form the focal point of the shirt. The kit is completed by black shorts and colour blocked socks – half black, half blue – taken directly from the neck of the Biscione, an enduring club symbol. 

An elevated trim ensures the Inter crest really stands out, and inside the jersey is a tribute to more Inter heritage via a St George’s Cross, to highlight the club’s connection to the city of Milan, the word "Internazionale" and the year 1908, Inter’s founding year.

The 2019-20 Inter Milan home kit will be available May 23 from official retailers, nike.com and store.inter.it. Inter’s men’s team will wear the kit for the first time in their final league game of the current season on May 26.  
 

May 23, 2019 - AS Roma’s 2019-20 home kit is decorated by a dynamic lightning bolt detail across the jersey’s collar and sleeves. The symbol is associated with the Roman god of the sky, Jupiter, and lights up an otherwise classic Giallorossi design.

“Roman mythology and its influence on Roman identity played a huge part in the concept. This year, Jupiter was our focus, and the lightning bolt was an obvious and powerful symbol to use,” explains Pete Hoppins, Nike Football Apparel Senior Design Director.

The new kit will be worn by both the club’s men’s and women’s team.“It’s a really beautiful addition to the Roma jersey and we, as players, will wear it with great pride, giving all our best for our supporters,” says Elisa Bartoli, the captain of the club’s women’s team.

The head to toe look is completed by white shorts and red socks. The socks also feature a lightning bolt, alongside a Nike swoosh and AS ROMA. “The lightning bolt is something new and exciting,” says midfielder Nicolò Zaniolo.

The 2019-20 AS Roma home kit will be available May 23 on nike.com, asromastore.com and in official retailers. The men’s team will wear it May 26.

Chelsea’s Home Kits Celebrate the Bridge

May 02, 2019 - The Blues have called their iconic stadium, Stamford Bridge, home since 1905 — making it fitting inspiration for the 2019-20 home kit. The club’s classic blue jersey is covered in an all-over graphic comprising imagery of the famous North Stand, the East and West Stands and the raucous Shed End merged into an abstract print.

“We’ve created so many memories at The Bridge over the years, so it’s only fitting that we pay tribute to such an iconic stadium through the jersey,” says forward Eden Hazard.

The shirt features a V-neck and a red and white CFC monogram on the back of the collar. Inside, there's a lion (borrowed from the club crest) with “Pride of London” written around it (the Blues mantra). The shorts, also blue, are complemented by white socks that have Chelsea's traditional red and blue trim up the calf.

“The Bridge is hallowed turf for Chelsea players and fans alike,” says Pete Hoppins, Nike Football Apparel Senior Design Director. “It’s such a key part of the club’s identity and we are delighted to present a kit that is essentially a tribute to one of England’s oldest and most important stadiums.”

The 2019-20 Chelsea home kit will debut May 4 during the club’s final league home game of the season. It will be available for sale beginning May 2 on nike.com/chelsea and at the Stamford Bridge Megastore.

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.
