Celebrating the end of one era, marked by the commencement of another, Participation Trophy Studio has produced a mashup AS Roma shirt dubbed “Colosseum”, that combines a piece of every home and away kit from the Nike era.

Roma played their first Serie A match in their fresh 21/22 home kit from New Balance this weekend in what was a fiery affair against Fiorentina. The match – and Roma’s attire – signalled the true commencement of the partnership between the club and brand, and also the final nail in the coffin of Roma’s former partnership with Nike. But though it is over, the partnership, which lasted for seven years, produced an array of some of the best kits of the time and it shouldn’t be forgotten, and that's where the creative talent at Participation Trophy Studio come in, having created a special 'Colosseum' mashup jersey.

Participation Trophy Studio are no strangers to the mashup scene, having created USA mashup kits and an outstanding Bayern Munich Oktoberfest mashup back in 2020. Now hey urn their attention to the legacy of Nike x AS Roma. 

Among the shirts in the 'Colosseum' mashup are some iconic designs, such as the lightning trim of the cream/marble coloured Lupetto kits, and they’re matched by designs that carry added meaning due to some of the moments in which they were worn, such as Roma's 3-0 comeback vs FC Barcelona in the Champions League. The ‘Colosseum’ is a 1 of 1 mashup jersey that pays homage to the various memories over their seven year partnership, with pieces of every home and away kit that the brand and club released together. It’s made up of 51 individual cuts of fabric from 15 different Nike x AS Roma kits, with the overall design being a classic style mosaic depicting a sunset over Rome’s famous Colosseum – Apt.
