10 designs in 1 kit

Nike X Inter 20th Anniversary mashup shirt

We’ve all seen football kits that made the headlines for being amongst the worst ever to be used during football matches. Now, a new different kind of absurdity has emerged.

Thankfully, it will be used for one match only. To celebrate the 20th anniversary of partnership with Nike, Inter FC will be playing the Milan Derby on 17th March wearing a very particular kit. Named Inter x Nike 20th Anniversary Jersey, the kit will consist a mash up of 10 famous home designs into one special edition shirt.

Pete Hoppins, Nike Football’s Apparel Senior Design Director, said that the jersey is like a roadmap of Inter’s recent history. Loony doesn’t agree, as he felt a bit dizzy when he saw the jersey.

 

10 designs were picked out from the past 20 years

10 designs were picked out from the past 20 years, and some of them are synonymous with great victories, while others are fan favourites. Five designs will be on the front while another five will be on the back. Amongst Inter’s important moments represented on this shirt are the team’s first season with Nike in 1998-99, a shirt worn by legendary striker Ronaldo; the club’s centenary season in 2008-09, a team captained by Inter legend Javier Zanetti; and Inter’s greatest ever season, the historic treble-winning campaign of 2009-10.

A golden crest, swoosh and sponsor’s logo will detail the front of the shirt, while a custom ‘20-year’ inner pride feature provides a finishing touch. Despite being worn only once, this jersey can be bought online and from selected outlets. Below are the designs that will feature on this particular kit:
