AS Roma Nike 2019-20 ASSIEME Kits

The special 2019-20 home and third shirts come from the supply of Nike shirts made for the first team and feature the ‘ASSIEME’ logo, meaning ‘together’ in Italian, across the front.

Only 500 of the special ‘ASSIEME’ shirts exist – 350 of the home, 150 of the third - each one is numbered from 1 to 500.

Each shirt also features a special Roma Cares patch on the sleeve.

The 500 shirts went on sale exclusively on on Friday. The shirts are priced €192.70 each – after 1927, the year AS Roma was formed - and all proceeds will go to Roma Cares to support its activities directly related to the Covid-19 crisis. The third shrit is already sold out.

“We launched the ‘ASSIEME’ campaign to show our fans that despite not being able to be together at the stadium right now, we were still close to them,” said Francesco Calvo, AS Roma chief operating officer, who leads the Roma Cares foundation.

“In these challenging times, we have felt the support of our fans and we have tried to help those most in need in our community. With the money president Jim Pallotta, Roma Cares, our players and staff, partners and fans have donated, we have already purchased and distributed eight ventilators, eight intensive care beds and over 45,000 sanitary goods - protective masks, gloves and sanitizers - and with the remainder of the money raised to date, we have ordered thousands of additional and essential protective supplies to be distributed to the hospitals to help them cope with the next stage of this crisis.

“With the money we raise from selling the limited edition ‘ASSIEME’ shirts, Roma Cares is already liaising with Regione Lazio and Protezione Civile to understand how best to contribute given the evolution of the situation.”
