Italian champions Juventus had already launched their new away kit for next season, however this morning the Bianconeri officially launched their 2012/13 home, away and training kits which are manufactured and supplied by Nike.
The new Juventus shirts will have the JEEP logo, which will have their logo on Juventus shirts for the first time following a recent agreement. The new Juventus home shirt features the traditional black and white stripes with a black round collar and the ‘Scudetto Tricolore’ on the top center part of the chest to commemorate the 2011/12 Italian Serie A league success. Same as to the away shirt, the new home shirt features the famous phrase uttered by Juventus Honorary President Giampiero Boniperti, “Vincere non e’ importante, e’ l’unica cosa che conta”, (winning is not important, it’s the only thing that counts) – on the inside of the collar.
Juventus striker Mirko Vucinic and central midfieler Arturo Vidal modelled the new Nike home shirt.
Juve’s new away shirt was modelled by the new signing Kwadwo Asamoah. The shirt is mainly black with thin white stripes forming two bands on each sleeve.
