Adidas and Juventus team up for a limited edition jersey to mark the club's 120th anniversary. The jersey pays homage to Juve's founding year, 1887, and will be worn for the first and only time this weekend against Benevento.

Paying homage the club's 1887 inception, when the club was formed by a group of students, and taking inspiration from Juventus kits of the early '50's, the jersey features the classic white and black stripes, with a wide back panel on the reverse – a feature which has also been re-introduced in the club's current home kit. Only 1897 jerseys will be available worldwide.

The shirt noticeably features no club crest, instead solely focusing on three gold stars, each representing 10 league titles – a symbol which has featured on every club kit since the 1994/95 season. To honour the club's 120 year anniversary the sponsor logos have been stitched black-black onto the right chest. The shirt is made from polyester pique to offer a tight fit and modern look. The inside of the neck-line includes a sign off with the anniversary dates and takes inspiration from the first ever Juve emblem.
