With Roma's 2020-2021 ice-lolly retro shirt dropping to near universal acclaim earlier this week, it was only a matter of time before people started asking about the away kit. While we haven't seen any official leaks of Roma's new away shirt, the color scheme—believed to be ivory and maroon while featuring the classic lupetto logo—did make their way onto the internet this past winter.

And earlier this morning, some intrepid Roma fan spotted this shirt in the wild, snapping a photo of the 2020-2021 away kit:

Unfortunately, no one has stood up to claim credit for this photo, but it's popped up on all your standard European-based Roma sites by now. As you can see, the club and Nike decided to bring back the collar/polo-shirt, a look they sported as recently as the 2014-2015, their first season with Nike.

In addition to the collar, the shirt features an ivory/cream base with maroon and yellow accents, but the real attention grabber of this shirt is the Lupetto logo, created by Piero Gratton in 1978. Gratton passed away earlier this spring, so this was a nice nod to the man responsible for perhaps the most beloved bit of iconography in club history.

Now that the shirt is in stores, it's likely only a matter of time before the club official unveils their new away shirt. In the meantime, look for Roma to wear their new home shirts when they host Fiorentina on Sunday in the final home fixture of this strange season.
