The wait is finally over for Juventus fans as the club have released their official home kit for the 2022/23 season.
Every year, supporters proudly head to the stores before walking through the doors of the Allianz Stadium in their newly purchased jerseys. Therefore, the designers have a lot of pressure to get the design right, especially considering the fact that fans have endured mass disappointment this season.
Although they’ve qualified for the Champions League, the Juve faithful still feel underwhelmed. They’re used to capturing titles, meaning anything less falls way below their expectations. And this year, they were nowhere near winning Serie A.
With just two games left of the season, they stand 11 points behind AC Milan in a campaign they’d soon rather forget. But hopefully, with a new strip, the squad will feel inspired to give the fans something to cheer about next year.

Juventus 2022/23 home kit revealed
The striking new jersey certainly catches the eye. It takes an intriguing twist on the Italian side’s notorious white and blank stripes, which are now made up of small triangles.
The promotional video showcases the simple crew neck collar and four stripes which descend down the torso with a further two on the arm. Furthermore, the Jeep logo stands loud and proud in the centre of the shirt with lightning bolts featured in the writing. Fans will hope the team will ‘light up’ Serie A in a similar way.
But regardless of their new kit, a beautiful design falls by the wayside without the right team wearing it.
What will the Juventus squad look like in 2022/23?
Although they’ve not had the best of seasons, Juve have reason to feel optimistic. In January, they secured the services of Dusan Vlahovic, and the Serbian began to showcase his quality from the off. He’s impressed the fans with his physicality and technique, en route to scoring six goals in 13 appearances. However, he arrived too late in the campaign to springboard the club back into title contention. With a full campaign to showcase his skills, he’ll likely have them back where they belong.
Furthermore, according to The Mirror, Paul Pogba looks set to return to the Italian giants. Although he’s failed to impress at Manchester United, there’s a reason why the Premier League club broke the world transfer record to bring him to The Theatre of Dreams, and that’s because he set the world alight with Juventus.
‘Fidanzata d’Italia’ have offered him a contract which he looks likely to accept.
