The commemorative kit uses the same color palette as AC Milan’s 2019/20 home jersey, however has been embellished with gold accents seen on the inserts. Additionally Milan’s celebrated club badge is also dressed in gold and features a “120” motif just below, while the collar features the team’s Devil mascot along with the date of the club’s formation, 1899, and today’s year. A special added touch also sees the words of founding father Herbert Kilpin emblazoned on the black and red stripes: “We’re going to be a team of devils. Our colours will be red like flames and black like our opponents’ fear!”
