AC Milan and PUMA have collaborated once again to showcase the fresh new 2022-23 away jersey, which is inspired by the Rossoneri’s seven champions league triumphs and iconic white outfits.
The all-white away uniform is synonymous with the club’s major victories and finals, and it has become an emblem within the club’s identity.
AC Milan have channelled their energies into their 2022-23 outfit since being the first Italian side to win the European Champions Club’s Cup with an all-white strip in 1963.
AC Milan Chief Revenue Officer, Casper Stylsvig, comments on this season’s away kit: “It is a jersey rich in symbolism, with the white kit being an iconic part of who we are and the seven stripes representing the Club’s incredible success in Europe.”
This season, the team is wearing a fan-favorite away uniform from 1984-85. The shirt’s white foundation includes seven red horizontal stripes across the centre of the jersey, representing the club’s seven Champions League titles, while also paying homage to the 1984-85 uniform.
PUMA’s Senior Head of product line management teamsport apparel, Marco Mueller, adds, “AC Milan is steeped in history, so we looked to the 1984/85 season Away kit as an inspiration. We wanted to bring a fresh energy to that kit and celebrate iconic all-white kits of the past.”
The jersey has black and red trim on the sleeve cuffs and collar, as well as the Milan coat of arms on the top back.
The white jersey honours the club’s strengthened partnership with PUMA as they once again use the style, fashion, and culture of Milan to design kits that function just as well on the pitch as they do off it.
On footballing front, AC Milan will begin their preseason with a friendly against Zalaegerszegi TE at the ZTE Arena in Zalaegerszegi on Saturday.
Last season, the Rossoneri ended a decade-long search for the Scudetto and are currently ready to defend it the following season.
Last week, Stefano Pioli’s squad defeated Bergamo minnows Almenno Lemine 3-0 in a training match before defeating FC Koln 2-1 in the Telekom Cup.
Milan will try to boost up their preparations with less than three weeks until the start of the new season.
