posted by Oscar September 12, 2017

The UEFA Champions League is back!! While a lot of us may take advantage of these dates to start queuing up the iconic theme song (UPDATE), Nike instead has opted for unleashing some new kits for some of the teams in the competition they suit up.

Spain’s FC Barcelona, Italy’s Inter Milan and AS Roma, and Chelsea and Tottenham from the UK, all have new kits announced this week. All the teams listed will be sporting camo designs on their latest jerseys.

Some of the colors have some interesting names and titles. Chelsea’s dark grey shirt has “modern electric blue” features and Spurs will be wearing a dark purple kit “rich yellow” highlights. The cool names for the new colors go to Italian squads, with Inter rocking a thunder blue third kit and AS Roma’s new jersey will be turning heads thanks to their dark velvet brown tone. The big stand-out? That goes to Barça, which is biting Roma’s signature maroon & orange colors for some odd and inexplicable reason… I mean, it looks cool, but still.

Check out images of the new kits below. Continue Reading

The sleeves’ cuffs are in the club’s traditional yellow, which features stripes running down the shirt’s flanks. A brand new feature for a Roma kit is the first-time-ever presence of the numbers on the back containing a graphic print tribute to the Italian capital’s heralded architectural wonders, ancient streets and vibrant neighborhoods, illustrating the strong bond between the club, the city and the fans.
