AS Roma revealed their new 08/09 kappa home, away and goalkeeper kits during the Italian Cup victory celebrations on the 24th of may. They are not yet officially released on the AS Roma website or shop so we have to wait for some quality pictures of the new 2008/09 Kappa kits.

Roma's colours of maroon red with a golden yellow trim represents the traditional colours of the Eternal City, the official seal of the comuni features the same colours. The gold symbolizes God in Roman Catholicism, while the maroon represents imperial dignity. White shorts and black socks are usually worn with the maroon red shirt, however in particularly high key games the shorts and socks are the same colour as the home shirt.

The kit itself was originally worn by Roman Football Club; one of the three clubs who merged to form the current incarnation in 1927. Because of the colours they wear, Roma are often nicknamed i giallorossi meaning the yellow-reds. Roma's away kit is traditionally white, with a third kit changing colour from time to time.

good shirts.<br />The sponsor still sucks though.

3/5<br /><br />I like the orange seams on the home kit, but I think there is lack of orange in the collar.<br />From the back it seems a training kit with the orange only on the seams.<br /><br />The away kit is very much better than previous one thanks to orange and maroon trims.But I hate the big kappa logos on the shoulders.<br /><br />This will be the ch.league kit ,coz I think that like last season in the serie A the shirts will have the Italian Cup badge on the left with kappa smaller in the middle.<br /><br />Furthermore I\'ve to say that if AS Roma will be acquired by the American George Soros,kappa will be probably replaced by a great kit supplier like Nike already in the 2008/09 season

just looks like the kappa symbol is smaller really.<br /><br />pretty bland.

I don\'t expect shirt sales in the UK to be very high with a sponsor like that - Wind

They may as well have \"Flatulence\" written across the front of their shirt

All Kappa seem to be doing in the last 5 or 6 years or so is recycle old designs, change the material a bit and call them completely new. This new style is not a lot different to the kits they made in 2002, and 2005 - same stitching, same collar, etc.<br /><br />This new kit isn\'t a million mile away from the previous kit, or indeed the kits worn in 01/02 and 02/03.
