Nike has unveiled Italian soccer team AS Roma's new kit, which features a design rooted in the team's glorious history with a nod to the future of the team from the Italian capital.

The shirt is the first AS Roma shirt designed by Nike. The body is colored in Roma's traditional and iconic deep red and features a drop-needle tonal stripe throughout the body. The shirt has deep yellow cuffs that show off AS Roma's secondary color, and a unique red polo neck collar with yellow underneath. The collar can be flicked up to offer players a style variant and give them the opportunity to show off the club colors.

The back of the neck features a textured yellow tab with the statement "La Roma Non Si Discute Si Ama," which translates to "Roma is loved without question," the motto that has come to define AS Roma supporters' sense of belonging to their beloved team.
