PUMA has just unveiled its latest football kit for the Italian National Team. Instead of the Azzurri’s signature blue jersey, the new kit boasts a royal green colorway inspired by the Renaissance period.

Upon a closer look, the motifs taken from Renaissance fabrics and architecture have been interwoven throughout the fabric. The color is also a nod to the green shirt worn by the Italian team when they defeated Argentina 2-0 back in December of 1954. Following the victory, the youth teams adopted the color, while blue was reserved only for the senior squad. The piece is then elevated with a navy blue collar and sleeves, in addition to a golden PUMA insignia and Italy’s celebrated club badge on the chest.

An official press release states: “The kit marks the start of a new era for the national side, as young players continue to rise up within the Azzurri squad — there are twelve players in the latest squad called to Coverciano who are 25 or younger.”

The new green kit will debut on October 12 as the Azzurri head to Stadio Olimpico to take on Greece during a EURO 2020 qualifying fixture. Fans can purchase PUMA’s new Italy National Team kit now online.
