The 2013/14 football may not be over and we’ve still got the magic of the World Cup to come but that has not stopped adidas looking ahead to the 204/15 season releasing new kits for AC Milan.
Next Sunday, when AC take on Atalanta, the Milan players will wear a new third kit: an original yellow/green kit inspired by the traditional Brazilian colours to pay tribute to a country that in a few weeks will host the FIFA World Cup™ 2014.
Brazil has always had, and still has, a special relationship with AC Milan thanks to the numerous Brazilian football stars who wrote, and keep writing, the history of the rossoneri.
It is not by chance that Brazil is indeed one of the countries with the highest number of AC Milan fans and supporters.
Sunday 18 May, against Sassuolo, the new red and black home jersey will be showcased: an innovative design revisiting the traditional red and blacks stripes.
For the players’ names and numbers, the brand new official font milan type will be used.
Home jersey design
For the first time ever, the red and black stripes show different widths and colour tones. The central black stripe is wider compared to the other 4 while the red stripes feature 2 different shades of red.
The signature adidas 3-Stripes are white and, leitmotiv of the last Milan-adidas collections, proud tricolored details are placed on the shoulders.
The logo of the new jersey is a tribute to tradition: on the chest of the players and the fans that will wear it, there will be the San George’s cross, historical element of the town flag.
This flag was woven on AC Milan’s jerseys since the foundation of the club until the 40’s and for the club centenary. On the inside, tone on tone, the current AC Milan’s logo. Shorts are white with red 3-Stripes.
Third kit design
Yellow jersey with 3-Stripes in green as the logo of the jersey sponsor FLY Emirates. Red and black details on the shoulders and sleeves. Green shorts with white 3-Stripes.
The new kits will offer more speed and comfort to the players. They are made of an ultralight fabric which enhances breathability while allowing unparalleled freedom of movement and comfort without compromising elasticity and durability.
The 3rd jersey will be on sale from today in retail stores and also on the adidas and Milan ecommerce channels globally, the new home jersey will be available starting from May 18th.
