FC Internazionale Milano Celebrates Signature Wins and Its Iconic Sponsor with New Third Kit

September 09, 2019 - FC Internazionale Milano will once again play at the highest level of European club competition this season; the club's new third kit pulls together elements of the iconic looks from two seasons in which the Nerazzurri reigned supreme: 1997-98 and 2009-10.

The influence of the ’97-98 kit, worn by Brazil legend Ronaldo, is particularly strong with the return of a black silhouette, stylishly enlivened by bright yellow trim and detailing. Meanwhile, the shirt incorporates a crew-neck collar, as was the case in ’09-10 when the team won an unprecedented treble. 

“Black and yellow is always a winning combination, and Inter’s third kit looks especially dynamic,” says Pete Hoppins, Nike Football Apparel Senior Design Director. “We’ve taken inspiration from two special older kits, kept things on trend with the ’90s themes we are seeing in streetwear at the moment and the result is something that we hope will appeal to all fans.”

The design celebrates Inter’s long-running partnership with shirt sponsor Pirelli, which dates back to 1995, as well as the classic Nike Futura logo. It includes an all-over black matte/shine jacquard pattern, with the club crest and the word "Inter" subtly emerging from the fabric. Yellow trims the collar and sleeves, while the colors used for the sponsor’s logo reference the motorsports world.

Black shorts and socks complete the full look, both featuring flashes of yellow and the vintage Nike logo. 

The kit releases September 9.

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.

FC Internazionale Milano 2019-20 Away Kit

June 25, 2019 - A regal new away kit is in store for the FC Internazionale Milano 2019-20 season.

The vivid aquamarine jersey is meant to evoke memories of the goalkeeper’s kit worn by Julio Cesar the season after winning the historic treble in 2009-10.

Embellished with black and gold trim, the jersey takes inspiration from the elegance and grandeur of the city of Milan. The inside of the shirt features a Milanese cross that pays tribute to the architecture of the city’s cherished Duomo.

“I think this is a really fresh away look for Inter for 2019-20,” says Pete Hoppins, Nike Football Apparel Senior Design Director. “It’s great to be able to do that while also tapping into so much Milanese tradition."

Completing the kit are white shorts and color-blocked socks — half green, half white — that are separated by a black stripe and the word "Inter" midway up the calf.

The 2019-20 Inter Milan away kit will be available June 26 on Nike.com, store.inter.it and at select retailers. 

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.

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.

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.

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.
