These are the new AS Roma (Associazione Sportiva Roma) home, away, 3rd and goalkeeper kits fot the 2007/2008 serie A season made by kappa. The white away shirt has the 80th anniversary badge on it.
Roma's home strip comprises of maroon red shirts with golden yellow borders, white shorts and black socks, thus earning them their nickname I Giallorossi (The Yellow-Reds). The emblem of the team portrays the female wolf with the two infant brothers Romulus and Remus, illustrating the well-known myth of the creation of Rome, superimposed on a bipartite golden yellow over maroon red shield. The official colours also reflect the gold and maroon bipartite of the flag of the Eternal City, with the former symbolizing God in Christianity, and the latter imperial dignity.
Associazione Sportiva Roma was founded in July 1927 by a merger of three older clubs from the city of Rome who had played in the Italian football league; Roman FC (the oldest, founded in 1903), Alba-Audace Roma and Fortitudo-Pro Roma. The only major Roman club to refuse to merge was Lazio. The clubs which ultimately merged, spurned on by the regime's desire for each Italian city to be represented by one major club (as had happened in Florence, Naples and Bari already), either had good players but were struggling financially or had healthy finances but ordinary players.
After a short use of the Motovelodromo Appio stadium, the yellow-red team settled in the working-class streets of Testaccio, where it built the extraordinary all-wooden homonym ground. The area still remains the club's spiritual heartland. Other grounds that have been used by A.S. Roma are the Stadio Flaminio and the Stadio Olimpico (the latter was built in 1952).
At the end of the 2006-07 footballing season, A.S. Roma are the Coppa Italia holders, runners-up of the Serie A Championship and quarter-finalists of the UEFA Champions League.
