In a statement from the club, AS Roma announced a long-term partnership with adidas, swapping New Balance for a reunion with the Three Stripes.
adidas was responsible for some of Roma’s best kits in the ‘90s, and the two will be hoping to replicate the beauty of those designs in the coming seasons.
Roma teased the partnership with a short video clip on social media, depicting different adidas x Giallorossi scarves.
The club rattled off its memorable moments in adidas jerseys via an official club statement, from legend debuts to iconic wins: “The first time that the Giallorossi colours were showcased on an adidas jersey was on 19 April 1978, as the team ran out 2-1 winners over Verona on home soil. Under a month later on 7 May 1978, beloved club captain Agostino Di Bartolomei found the net wearing the very same kit. None other than Francesco Totti made his Roma debut in Serie A on 28 March 1993 wearing an adidas jersey in an away trip at Brescia.”
The 2023/24 season will mark the beginning of the new partnership, and though the kits have not been officially unveiled, Paulo Dybala and other players were spotted wearing a new kit in May while on a photoshoot.
If jerseys of the past are anything to go by, this partnership is one to keep an eye out for.
