Leaked Inter Milan 22-23 Away Kit Features No Star - Why?

The new Internazionale 2022-2023 away jersey was leaked last week. In contrast to Inter's current kits, it does not feature a star - let us find out what the likely reason is.

In Italy, teams can out a star on their kit for 10 league titles, respectively - 10, 20, 30, 40, etc. The reigning champions also earn the right to have the famous Scudetto on their kits - the Scudetto is being worn by Inter Milan in the 2021-22 season.

Inter One Title Short For Second Star

The very likely reason for the Inter Milan 22-23 away kit to have no star is simple - Inter are just one title away from earning their second star. Nike have therefore certainly decided to produce the kit without stars, in order to be able to add two stars synchronously if Inter win the 20th title.

There are three possibilities for the Inter 22-23 kits and the stars.

Option 1 - Inter Win League & Gain 2nd Star

  • 2 stars added to all kits, or only home
  • No Stars on 22-23 kits at all

Option 2 - Inter Do Not Gain 2nd Star

  • 1 star added to all kits, or only home
  • No Stars on 22-23 kits at all

Nike may decide to have no stars on Inter's kits in 22-23, or possibly only on the home kit. This would be similar to Bayern in the 21-22 season (only the home featured five stars).

There is also a chance that the image shows a faulty prototype without a star, but that is very unlikely.

As things stand, it is much more likely that AC Milan win the 2021-2022 Serie A. They have to gain one point away against Sassuuolo next weekend.

AC Milan need two titles for the second starMeanwhile, if AC Milan win the league, they would equalize with Inter's 19 titles and be just one title away from having their second star.
