The Boys In Blue

Gli Azzurri are one of the most successful national football teams ever. The team began their epic journey in 1910, but it was during the 1930s that they set their dominant legacy into motion. During these years, they won two FIFA World Cup™ titles and Olympic™ gold. The team continued to have periodic victories but their win in 2006 was epic: it added a fourth star to their team badge. Since our partnership began in 2003, PUMA has provided kit designs that complement Gli Azzurri’s inherent style and winning tradition. Through heritage-inspired product design and forward-thinking product solutions, PUMA recognizes that blue is more than just a color: Blue is a legacy of its own.
