Gli Azzurri is one of the most successful national football teams. Ever. The team played their first match in 1910, but it was during the 1930s that they truly kicked off their legacy. In 1934, Italy hosted the second ever FIFA World Cup™. It was the team’s first world tournament and resulted in their first star. They went on to win Olympic™ gold in 1936 and another FIFA World Cup™ in 1938. A third star was added to their badge in 1982. An epic fourth was won in 2006, proving that blue is never more passionate – on pitch, in the stands, on televisions around the world – than it is every four years.
The PUMA and FIGC partnership began in 2003. It has since developed kit designs that complement Gli Azzurri’s inherent style and winning tradition. Through heritage-inspired product details and modern technologies, the shirts recognize that blue is more than just a color: blue is a legacy all its own.
