Fiorentina presented the fourth jersey Designed by a fan and made by Kappa

Today, with the presentation of Fiorentina's fourth kit, the 'F4nskit: design the 4 jersey' contest, launched last April to design the fourth official jersey that effectively closes the circle of Fiorentina's kits for this season, comes to a close. The rules were quite simple, first and foremost the primary colours could be neither purple nor green and a maximum of three could be used, provided, however, that one of them was dominant. Following these instructions, the winner was Fabrizio Bartoli, an ordinary Viola fan, who was able to create an extremely clean but at the same time impactful jersey. The new jersey was made in Dark Grey with rhomboidal, solid and fading purple inserts seasoned with geometric lines with a 90s flavour but inspired by the shapes of the club's new logo.

A contest in which fans and designers participated from all over the world, sending in more than 700 sketches inspired by Florence and its violet history in a fortnight. Among the 6 finalists, the most voted by the violet public was the jersey of a Florentine designer, a jersey that was defined by the club as absolutely gritty and that won the most approval of the fans and was reproduced by Kappa Sport in a kit that is completely faithful to the original proposal. In a moment of profound quietness given the World Cup in Qatar, Fiorentina continues to be very active after changing its logo, implementing a series of initiatives with the aim of bringing the purple team to be a global brand, making the most of the heritage of values and history, intrinsically intertwined with those of one of the most beloved cities of art in the world.

The new jersey is already available here.
