The Italian Football Association (FIGC) and PUMA today revealed the new away kit for all national men’s, women’s and youth teams. Inspired by the long-standing tradition, the ever-growing passion and the steadfast pride of Italian football, the new kit features many unique design details. Gli Azzurri wore the new white away shirt for the first time at the Euro 2016 qualifying victory over Malta in Florence.

The new away shirt features an Italian flag inspired sublimation print stripe that reaches all the way from the collar to the hem, with a 3D framed FIGC badge being bedded into the stripe to complete the look. The tailored blue collar adds a nice contrast to the white base colour of the shirt. Further details include the blue mesh form stripe inserts on the shoulders, and the blue PUMA logo on the chest. The official PUMA font, which is exclusively designed for the FIGC offers a finishing touch to this new shirt.
As with the official FIGC home shirt, the new away shirt features PUMA’s performance enhancing ACTV Thermo-R technology. The ACTV tape is placed in strategic positions on the shirt to fulfil different functions, supporting the body’s physiological performance by cooling it in hot conditions and heating it in cool weather. PUMA’s dryCELL technology further improves the comfort as it wicks moisture away from the skin’s surface to keep the wearer dry.
The new Italy away shirt and a new collection of matching fan wear is now available to buy on Puma.com/Italy
