Napoli Debut Special Maradona Shirt From EA7

With the anniversary of Diego Maradona’s death fast approaching, Napoli have unveiled a special edition commemorative kit named “Maradona Game”, emblazoned with a graphic of the Argentinian’s face, which the players wore for their 1-1 draw with Verona.

25 November will mark one year since the death of Diego Maradona. One of the greatest players of all time, he shared a special relationship with Napoli, and the Serie A side now pay tribute to their fallen hero with a celebratory shirt made by EA7, which they debuted in their game against Verona over the weekend. They will also wear the kit for their two remaining fixtures in November against Inter and Lazio.

Napoli have already had a number of different kits supplied to them as part of their new partnership with EA7, most recently a Halloween-inspired option, which was debuted in their 1-0 win over Torino back in October. The “Maradona Game” shirt features an image of Maradona superimposed over a large fingerprint, representing the club's desire to pass on the Argentine hero’s legacy to the younger generations of the city of Napoli.

The limited edition shirt will be available in three different colours, a production run of 1926 per design, the number itself a tribute to the year the club was founded. It is likely that each of the three games throughout November will feature one of the different designs. A portion of the proceeds from sales will go to charities selected by the club.
