Adidas and Juventus F.C have team up with Arabic-Moroccan calligraphy artist Shaker Kashgari for the latest jersey design with the players’ name written in Arabic letters.
The premium collector’s football kit was first worn by the guys during the recent finals of the 2019 Supercoppa Italiana held at Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, in a match against Lazio.

Aptly named the Riyadh edition, this was the first time for an international foot club jersey to feature a traditional Arabic writing. The limited edition jersey aims to pay homage to the traditional art of Arab society.
Aside from that, the Italian football association also looks forward to embracing their cultural differences with the birth of this specially-crafted sports attire. For those who don’t know, 14 of the players came from different social backgrounds.
As mentioned earlier, the design features footballers such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Paulo Dybala and Giorgio Chiellini’s names all written in traditional Arabic letters. Meanwhile, the word ‘Juventus’ was included in the players’ representative numbers displayed at the bottom of their names.
Die-hard fans of Juventus can get their hands on this limited edition babies from the 20th up until 31st Decemeber. However, the jerseys will only be available at adidas stores around Riyadh and Jeddah.
