PUMA Unveil AC Milan 21/22 Away Shirt

Primed and ready for a push for the Serie A title that rivals Inter currently hold, PUMA unveil the AC Milan 21/22 away shirt. The design sees the iconic red and black colourings laid out on a clean golden base.

AC Milan and PUMA revealed the club’s home shirt for the 21/22 season back in May, and now the brand drop the new away shirt for the 21/22 campaign. The special new golden kit celebrates the work of Fondazione Milan, AC Milan’s charity, with the words “Fondazione Milan” printed under the collar on the back of the shirt. The new Away jersey also features a striking all-over pattern inspired by six cities across the world involved in a charitable initiative that will officially launch in September.

The 21/22 away shirt features a design that celebrates New York, Rio de Janeiro, Kolkata, Melbourne, Nairobi and Milan with a striking all-over pattern made of the six city outlines, representing Milan’s impact from Milan to Italy to the World. It combines 100 percent recycled polyester with advanced PUMA dryCELL thermoregulation technology to ensure uncompromising fit and mobility, keeping the athlete dry and comfortable. The jersey integrates an Ultra-light jacquard structure into the back of the jersey to enhance breathability during intense performance.

AC Milan connects so many people across the world through football and charitable projects, so we wanted to pay tribute to this with the design of the shirt. The idea behind the bespoke graphic integrated into the jersey was to give each city connected to the Fondazione its own identity,” said Nick Willems, Graphic Designer Teamsport Apparel. “We placed distinct graphics created for each city inside outlines of those cities. We then added those graphics into a repeat pattern to connect all of the cities, symbolizing the strength of AC Milan and of the Fondazione.”

Casper Stylsvig, AC Milan Chief Revenue Officer said, “We are proud to be launching this Away kit with our partner PUMA and celebrate the work of our Fondazione Milan, which does an incredible job helping people in need at a local and international level. The jersey itself looks very elegant with its golden colour and geometric pattern, but most importantly it will help us bring some change into the world through the “From Milan to the World” initiative, which will launch in the near future. This is something we are particularly proud to be able to do as a Club, because it fits perfectly within our social responsibility journey, which remains a very important aspect of our work at AC Milan, both on and off the pitch.”
