Juventus removes iconic black-white stripes in new home kit

MILAN, Italy: Serie A champions Juventus unveiled their new home kit for the 2019-20 season, and for the first time in over a century removed the iconic black-and-white stripes.

The club was founded in 1897, but players have worn black and white stripes of various types since 1903.

Cristiano Ronaldo and his team-mates will wear a half-and-half jersey with white on the right and black on the left.

"The daring new design evokes the past, whilst igniting the future of the club through the evolution of the iconic black and white stripes," the team said. "An unexpected flash of pink sits at the heart of the design and honours the first colour the club ever played in."

The team will debut the new jersey against Roma in Serie A on Sunday in the Stadio Olimpico.

Juventus are the record Serie A winners with 35 titles, including the last eight in a row.
