February 10, 2020 - The Michigan State Spartans men’s basketball program won its second national title in 2000 behind a trio of loyal Flint natives and the leadership of one of college basketball’s most charismatic coaches. The team’s jerseys were immediately recognizable with the Greek-inspired key pattern used as a trim around the neckline, arm sleeves, waistline and the bottom of the shorts. Now, the Spartans are reviving the 20-year anniversary look in a retro uniform.
The school’s proprietary green runs in a stripe down the right side of the jersey and the shorts, ending with the Michigan State “S.” The left leg features the Michigan State helmet logo.
The Spartans will wear the retro uniform during the team's home game February 15. A retail version of the uniforms release February 10 at specialty retailers.
August 13, 2020 - Nike and Liverpool Football Club launched their partnership on August 1. The new home kit acknowledges the club's past. Liverpool's 2020-21 away kit introduces a visionary look that is a visual representation of club and city.
“We have very distinct design filters that are fully demonstrated in the collection we’ve created for Liverpool FC,” says Scott Munson, VP, Nike Football Apparel. “We set out to create a collection that celebrates the rich culture of the city of Liverpool and the club. The away kit allowed us to be bolder and more expressive in how we brought some of these cultural references to life, and we’ve landed on a look and aesthetic that really reflects that.”
Having introduced teal through subtle design references in the home jersey, the color explodes into a bold print on the 2020-21 away jersey — heavily influenced by the Liver Bird (the beacon of the city). The kit is also emphasized by the Shankly gates, which are brought to life through the swirling acanthus leaves that embellish the legendary You’ll Never Walk Alone motif.
“I’m a massive fan of the new away kit,” says Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson. “I really love the design and how it has been influenced by the city and specific aspects of the club. I can’t wait to get back out there and play in it next season.”
On the nape of the neck, and in memoriam of the 96 children, women and men who lost their lives more than three decades ago at Hillsborough in the worst disaster in British sporting history, a 96 emblem is encased by eternal flames.
The shorts are teal and have a black stripe down the side and the socks carry through the aesthetic of the jersey.
The 2020-21 Liverpool FC away kit is available now for Early Access at nike.com and at all retailers August 17. It is also available for pre-order in LFC retail stores and online at store.liverpoolfc.com.
July 31, 2020 - The new Atlético de Madrid 2020-21 away kit comes in head-to-toe blue with bright red detailing, and is inspired by the city’s Fountain of Neptune, one of the most iconic monuments in the city center where Atleti fans gather to celebrate the team’s victories. The bright, colorful details include gradient striping — unique to Atlético's new away — which is used to illuminate the collar, sides of the jersey and socks.
“This kit is really striking,” says midfielder Marcos Llorente. “The blue really grabs your attention and the red also jumps out. I like the subtle stripes and I think it will be very popular with the players and the supporters.”
The front of Atlético's blue away is lit up by a red Nike Swoosh, club crest and sponsor’s logo. The gradient striping surrounds the crew-neck collar and runs down the sides of the torso.
Blue shorts and socks complete the full look, with gradient striping stretching up the leg from the ankle. Inside the shirt, an inner-pride feature depicts a trident in a further reference to Neptune and to Atleti’s strong bond with the statue.

July 31, 2020 - FC Barcelona's 2020-21 away kit is inspired by the electric atmosphere of Barcelona by night. When the sun goes down, the avenues of the Catalan capital come alive, bringing energy and light to the darkened city blocks.
It is the club's first black away kit since the 2011-12 season. "Black and gold go really well together and the kit looks really sharp," says defender Gerard Piqué. "It has been a few years since we have had black, so it’s a nice change to have it back."
Black from head to toe — jersey, shorts and socks — the kit features a number of contemporary details. A golden Nike Swoosh, club crest and sponsor’s logo light up the front of the jersey, with the embroidered crest and Swoosh standing out thanks to an elevated trim.
"The energy on the ground in Barcelona is hard to match, as is its passion for the football club," says Scott Munson, VP, Nike Football Apparel. "I think these colors work really well to create a clean look that will have that crossover appeal and make it popular in the streets that inspired it."
A two-tone gold and black V-neck collar and custom rib trim on the sleeves give the jersey a superior feel. A gold squad number, Swoosh and crest feature on the black shorts, while the word "Barça" and a Swoosh appear midway up the front of the socks.

July 30, 2020 - Inspired by a new era of football and innovation, Tottenham Hotspur’s new home kit uses dynamic color blocking and a bespoke knit pattern to add a futuristic quality to the club’s traditional look.
“Tottenham Hotspur’s 2020-21 designs try to capture some of the excitement generated through what has been a momentous time for the club,” says Scott Munson, VP, Nike Global Football Apparel.
The home shirt sees the traditional white enhanced by a knit pattern woven into the fabric. The pattern was created by reinterpreting graphics from old jerseys to create a new design. Blocks of blue cover the shoulders and frame the pattern, while a yellow pinstripe lights up a dark V-neck collar.
The same blue and yellow can be found on tape running down the sides of the torso. A yellow loop label, inspired by streetwear and featuring the Spurs badge, can be found at the left hip in another Spurs’ exclusive. Elevated trims on the Nike Swoosh and club badge provide a premium finish. Blue shorts and white socks complete the look.
“The kits look great,” says striker Harry Kane. "The home shirt has that distinct Spurs feel to it, but at the same time, looks very modern thanks to all the special touches. As an away kit, this shade of green is a new color, but I think it suits us really well, and the small details also make a big difference.”
As with the home kit, the away kit takes an adventurous approach by introducing a fresh shade of green and flashes of neon yellow and lava glow to create a vibrant change of colors for the new season.
The shirt is enlivened by hits of neon pink and yellow. Lava glow pinstripes pop against a black collar and side stripes, while a Barely Volt Swoosh, crest and sponsor’s logo shine against the green background of the jersey. The away shirt also features the exclusive loop label and elevated trims.
The 2020-21 Tottenham Hotspur home and away kits are available July 30 on nike.com and tottenhamhotspur.com.

July 29, 2020 - Reviving a classic look for the 2020-21 away kit, AS Roma's new second shirt is predominantly ivory in color. This is reminiscent of the countless iconic monuments that give the Italian capital its distinctive appearance and unmatched beauty.
The shirt is highlighted by a polo collar and a two-button closure. The arrangement of the collar colors (dark red with yellow and red border details) brings to mind the club’s away shirts from the early 1980s — a golden era for the club.
“Everyone remembers those away kits, with the yellow and red collars,” says midfielder Lorenzo Pellegrini. “The influence of those designs is clear to see in this new kit, one I think will quickly find its way into the hearts of the fans.”
The iconic Lupetto badge, designed by the late Piero Gratton, is featured on the chest, this time in black — a modern take on the club's kits from the late 1970s, which displayed the badge in its usual yellow and red circular frame.
Complementing the new shirt, the away shorts are also dark red. On the right thigh, the Lupetto is presented in white, another call-back to the 1980s. Ivory socks with yellow and red detailing complete the outfit.
The new 2020-21 AS Roma away kit will be available July 29 on nike.com and asromastore.com.
July 23, 2020 - The Pumas 2020-21 home and away kits celebrate the sport culture and pride that is tied to the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM).
The traditional crest is surrounded by a triangular outline — a symbol of unity and tradition among players and fans that proudly upholds the three pillars of the university: education, research and cultural diffusion.
The home kit is presented in an elegant, clean white with blue details. White shorts and socks complete the head-to-toe look. The 2020-21 away kit flips the orientation of home kit colors and leads with a contrasting blue striped aesthetic. The full look includes blue shorts and socks.
The 2020-21 Pumas home and away kits are now available on nike.com and select retailers.
July 22, 2020 - Nike and AS Roma have revisited the club’s iconic colors to create the 2020-21 home kit — and one that is uniquely, unmistakably and gloriously Giallorosso.
This summer marks 40 years since the club’s victory in the 1980 Italian cup competition. That triumph marked an end to a memorable two-year period when the club wore the famous and distinctive gradient kit (known affectionately as the "ghiacciolo," or ice pop), which was a beloved creation of the late Piero Gratton, the father of the Lupetto badge.
For the upcoming 2020-21 season, Roma players will wear a new kit that takes inspiration from that iconic design, displaying horizontal Giallorossi stripes across the chest.
“It’s nice to see a shirt that features Roma’s iconic colors in such an original design,” said midfielder Lorenzo Pellegrini. “To wear a shirt inspired by such a famous kit from the club’s past will be special for both the team and the supporters.”
Roma’s new home kit includes the traditional deep red shirt, shorts and socks. The horizontal stripes stretching across the chest start in yellow and scale upward through orange to red.
“This is a modern interpretation of one of Roma’s most famous and unconventional kits ever,” said Scott Munson, VP Nike Football Apparel. “We’ve taken a linear gradient striped design, using a very traditional club color palette, to create a kit that we hope the team and supporters will wear with great pride.”
The design is topped by a dark red panel that runs from shoulder to shoulder and encompasses a crew neck collar. The same dark red appears on the trim of the sleeves and on stripes that run down the sides of the torso. A white squad number and yellow detailing appear on the shorts, while the deep red socks are topped with colored hoops to match the shirt design.
The word "Roma" appears on the calf and inside the shirt as an added detail — underlining the passion for the club and the city.

July 21, 2020 - With nods to the “Águilas del América” and a traditional uniform aesthetic that made history during Club América's decade of glory (the 1980s), inspirational characteristics abound in the club's 2020-21 home kit.
“I love this kit. It is such an honor to wear the club emblem, I feel proud,” says midfielder Jennifer Muñoz. Defender Bruno Valdez adds, "The new home kit has a very classic design."
The new home kit design features a vivid blue color and the iconic inverted triangle on the chest, closed by three ascending lines of blue, red and yellow, and capturing the mystique, passion and greatness of the club. The neckline has a blue V-neck finish, while the inner back features the phrase “El más grande” in blue.

July 21, 2020 - Paris Saint-Germain’s 2020-21 home and away kits mark the club’s 50th anniversary through a celebration of their beloved Hechter stripe.
The singular, broad red stripe, imagined by former club president Daniel Hechter, is at the heart of PSG’s identity, having featured on so many classic jerseys during the past 50 years.
“The Hechter stripe is a special symbol of PSG and I think it is right that we will wear a classic version of it for this important anniversary,” says defender Marquinhos. “It is amazing to think of all the famous kits and the great players to have worn them — now it is time for this team to make its own history while wearing this beautiful design.”
The stripe first appeared in 1973, three years after the formation of the club. The 2020-21 home shirt draws inspiration from that historic early design, and features a thick vertical red stripe outlined in white against a blue background. In a further nod to the ’70s kits, there is an overlapping V-neck collar and ribbed trim on the sleeves.
The phrase, "Paris Saint-Germain 50 Ans," appears on blue tape running down the sides of the torso, while a small Tricolour on the hem of the jersey provides an additional elegant detail. Blue shorts and socks complete the head-to-toe look.
The new away also features a prominent Hechter stripe, this time taking its cue from the white kit worn in the 1995-96 season when Les Parisiens captured a first major European title. The central red stripe is lined with royal blue, the true color of the city of Paris, and sits against white. A classic blue polo collar is fastened by two central buttons and sits above a club crest and an exclusive elevated Swoosh design.
“Together with the club we wanted to celebrate 50 years of football and fashion at PSG and that could only mean the return of a bold Hechter stripe,” says Scott Munson, VP, Nike Football Apparel. “The home kit is a tribute to the foundation of the club and the establishment of its unique style. The away brings back an iconic look from the mid-90s, when PSG made their mark in Europe and wore one of the most memorable jerseys of that era.”
Both kits can be viewed in 3D through the Nike App thanks to the augmented reality feature. The kits can be seen from every angle and customized with player names from the men’s and women’s teams. Users can learn about the history of the club, evolution of the PSG crest, customize their images with personalized backgrounds and share them with friends.
