    This feels wrong. All to sell more shirts in America, beyond silly.

    A good example of why football from today is more business than sport ...

    I don't mind if the change looks good... that design is so bad.

    :lol: Would be funny if this doesn't increase their sell in US at all because no one wants a hideous looking shirt.

    Fine idea but seriously Design better!

    Looks like a Jersey inspired from Two-Face's look in Batman.

    I don't get it, they want to make themselves more marketable by removing the things that make Juventus iconic?

    Sell shirts in US? Okay then why make the ugliest kit ever then.. no casual fan is going to want to buy that whereas Juve usually have the sort of kit non Juve fans will buy

    This design is only for this year. Nothing to worry about. They will go back to narrow stripes next year

    Definitely a case of missing who their target market actually is

    Even putting aside the fact that Juve's old kit is actually a hugely iconic one as well as pleasing to look at, and judging this on its own merits, it's an incredibly ugly/mediocre kit.

    I don't think Juve's classic kit is anything special aesthetically. It's recognisable, sure.

    New one isn't anything special either; the pink line should really go but beyond that it's an OK kit.

    Please tell me that's their 2nd or 3rd strip. If it's their main, it's disgusting.

    Newcastle are doing ok. I've noticed several obscure references to them. This is Laird Niven. An Archaeologist who works on Oak Island in Novia Scotia

    Alienated their whole European fan base so one American bloke would buy a shirt.

    On par with their shit badge rebrand. What a sell out of a club.

    Oh I'm sure, just odd to do something like this and also changing the badge needlessly too.

    Why don’t they just market the away kit as the main shirt in the US? Do a tour over there and play in just the away kit, etc. The new shirt looks crap and still looks like a refs’ kit.
