AS Monaco and Kappa have unveiled the club’s new home jersey for the 2019-20 season, marking the omini’s return to the famous diagonal design.
Two days after the official start of their new partnership, AS Monaco and Kappa presented the new ‘Kombat’ home jersey that Monegasques will wear for the next season, as well as the training and lifestyle collections now available for sale.
The jersey has been designed with Kombat™ technology to provide comfort and lightness for players, and features the mythical diagonal pattern on the front and back of the jersey. It is affixed to the lower 3/4 of the jersey in order to have a dominant red colour on the top where an all-over of diamonds reminiscent of the Principality’s coat of arms is merged.
Details include a revisited officer collar, the club’s coat of arms in 3D silicone on the heart side and the omini on the other side in gold. On the back, the claim “Daghe Munegu” is affixed in transfer in the pass. A white elastic insert is added at the bottom of the sleeves to complete the sleek and stylish shirt.
The outfit will be accompanied by white shorts and white and red stockings.
“We are very pleased to introduce the new home jersey, which marks Kappa’s return as an equipment supplier and major partner of the club for six seasons,” said Oleg Petrov, Vice-Chairman and Chief Executive Officer AS Monaco. “Kappa is a historical brand, which has partnered with the greatest teams and is also very well established in the world of fashion and lifestyle. The ambition to be as competitive as possible and the desire to surpass oneself are values that we are delighted to share, nearly 20 years after a first happy adventure. Kappa represents a glorious page in the club’s history and we are convinced that these strong memories will help us to look to the future successfully.”
The first partnership between Kappa and AS Monaco was initiated in 1998 and ended in 2001. It was a historic and fruitful collaboration that saw AS Monaco, supported by Ludovic Giuly and Marco Simone, win its 7th French Championship title and the 2000 Champions Trophy, under the famous Omini diagonal jersey.
“The signing of the partnership with AS Monaco is in perfect harmony with our ambition and our project to make Kappa a major sports brand in Europe,” said Lorenzo Boglione, owner of Kappa. “We are delighted to come and write a new story here, in an ambitious club with a strong identity and a unique character of elegance and excellence. Our shared glorious past must be a strength for the future of our partnership and we are very excited to unveil our products to all the club’s players and supporters today.”
