Last season our home and away kits were announced on Friday 25th May.
So maybe it will be Friday week which is the 24th.

It's disgusting. I can't believe anyone at the club signed it off.

I heard the explanation for it today. Apparently Juve have had difficulty selling to the American market because the striped shirts look too much like the shirts of American sport officials. Seemed a little outlandish to me, but that was the explanation given.

Having stripes for a kit must be an absolute nightmare for kit designers. You need to produce a new kit every season but it has to be different enough to sell to people who have the previous one but it still has to be stripes.

Barcelona were very clever by introducing non-striped kits into their repertoire in the 90s.

And as others have already mentioned... the idea of us marking 40 years without a trophy is just insane.

Juve already have the highest shirt sales of any 18-19 Champions League club in four of the States: https://www.soccer.com/guide/infographi ... eague-1819

Not saying it's not the reason, but seems even more outlandish with that taken into account.

I actually quite like the shirt, especially the nod to their original pink strips. It's not a Juventus shirt, though.

Add a collar and that could be quite some kit.
Especially when you get that betway logo out of the middle.

That would do nicely. Last seasons shirt was nice but didn't have enough blue on it.

Think that's the business. I don't think it needs any tweaking at all, perfection, but when are G&S going to start thinking a bit bigger and get us a more corporate branding instead of two bob sponsors like Betway

Was asked to swap my England polo shirt for a Corinthians (white) shirt by a huge Brasilian unit when in Sao Paulo during the 2014 World Cup. I was happy to do so.

When we're a club worth a corporate brands time and money I imagine. More than two or three European ties a decade would help.

The blue looks too dark and it needs a collar ;-)
