Roma have only gone and thrown a late contender for shirt of the summer into the mix. Nike have unveiled the club's new third shirt for the 2018/19 season featuring a strong "Eternal City" theme running throughout.

We've been craving busier, more bespoke football shirts in recent seasons and Nike are beginning to deliver. What we've got here is a jersey that includes a series of aerial map views of key moments in Roman history, from ancient times to present, to form a distinctive pattern on the fiery gold shirt.


Discreetly embedded within the design is the Lupetto, the she-wolf described in the founding myth of Rome, a powerful club symbol for the Giallorossi. Both the distorted map and the icon celebrate the city’s formidable history. Yeah, we're all over this. Hats off to Nike, their replica roll-outs are getting more interesting on that stunning AeroSwift template. The Swoosh have also whipped up a similar idea on the Spurs 18/19 Third kit.

Roma will debut the kit, which features matching gold shorts and traditional club coloured socks, on August 31 when they visit AC Milan in Serie A. Expect the new third shirt to make a few appearances in the Champions League this season too.


The Roma 18/19 Third Kit will be available on Sep 12 from
