All-New Italy 2018 World Cup Logo Leaked

Update: An up-close picture of the new Italy 2018 World Cup anthem jacket showing the all-new Italy 2018 crest has been leaked. The new Italy 2018 World Cup logo is set to be launched in November 2017 together with the Italy 2018 World Cup home kit.

Following up on the first leaks of Adidas' kits for the 2018 World Cup, the first information about a Puma 2018 World Cup kit has been leaked as it has been emerged that Italy will receive a new logo for the tournament in Russia.

Italy 2018 World Cup Crest

This illustration by Franco Carabajal shows the new Italy crest for the 2018 World Cup (information via @hendocfc).

The new logo of the Italian Football Federation (Federazione Italiana Giuoco Calcio; FIGC) features a more modern design than the crest introduced after the 2006 World Cup triumph. The shape of the crest is much rounder and softer, and the whole logo style is more open.

Old vs new logo

The four golden stars were moved from the inside of the crest to the top and the colors and positioning of the FIGC logo were also changed. However, all in all, despite the many changes, the new crest retains all elements of the previous crest.

Italy's new 2018 World Cu crest is expected to be launched together with the new Italy 2018 World Cup home jerseys in November 2017.
