After a historic year that ended with Scudetto number 19, AC Milan’s goal this year is to re-establish themselves as a force in the Champions League as well. On Friday, the Rossoneri presented their new, all-white away kit - a colour in which they have tasted glory so many times in the European Cup. And indeed the jersey comes with a detail that proudly recalls the legendary history of the Milanisti.

Shirt draws on 84/85 away jersey

The shirt is inspired by the 1984/85 away kit, which “kicked off a new era of dominance for the club, Milan explained: “They went on to win five more European titles [having already lifted the trophy in 1963 and 1969], wearing a white kit in every single final.”

Milan legend Franco Baresi said of the shirt: “Having worn the original 1984/85 away kit, I truly love the inspiration behind the new away jersey for next season. The white jersey always has a special meaning for all AC Milan fans as it is a symbol of the global success of our beloved club.”
