Juventus’ 120th Anniversary Jersey Is a Thing of Retro Beauty
Italian football giants Juventus F.C. celebrate their 120th anniversary today. So a gift to themselves, The Old Lady have just dropped a commemorative jersey to mark the occasion. And quite honestly, it might be the most beautiful football kit we’ve ever seen.
The limited edition Juventus 120th Anniversary Jersey has been released today, 1st November, the exact day in 1897 on which the famous club was originally formed. The throw-back jersey will be worn only once by the Serie A club as they take on Benevento this Saturday in Turin.
The first thing you’ll probably notice about the kit is that Juventus’ badge will be replaced by three stars to commemorate the 30 league titles won by the club. The sponsor logos are featured in black-on-black for a perfectly polished look as Juventus strip everything back to keep their famed black and white stripes the focus of the kit.
The 120th Anniversary Jersey features a crew-neck silhouette with slim short sleeves, and is said to be inspired by the great champions of the past. Alongside the three golden stars, the authentic vintage look is updated with original logo of the club embroidered on the inside of the collar.
