A few days ahead of the start of the European Championship, the Women’s National Team posed today at Coverciano for official photos with the PUMA match kits and the Ermanno Scervino formalwear. The collaboration between luxury partner Ermanno Scervino marks the first time that a partner has dressed the Women’s National Team along with the men’s senior and Under-21 teams.
The Azzurre have been provided with an outfit that complements those of the men’s senior and Under-21 teams while reflecting the style and high-quality workmanship of Ermanno Scervino. The outfit is made from stretch-fit wool in blue. There is a two-button jacket and pleat-less trousers. The white shirt is made from popeline stretch and it has a neck bow.
“The partnership with the FIGC is a project that we’re passionate about and we really believe in it,” said Maison CEO Toni Scervino. “To dress the Azzurre fills us with pride. It’s the first time that the girls have been provided with an outfit and this is an important message for equality. As a fashion house, we constantly work with the concept of femininity, which is now also found on the football pitch.”
The first match will be on Monday 17th July at the Sparta Stadium in Rotterdam against Russia at 18:00 CEST. On Friday 21st July, the Azzurre face Germany at 20:45 CEST at the Willem II Stadium in Tilburg. The final group match is on Tuesday 25th July against Sweden at 20:45 CEST at the Vijverberg Stadium in Doetinchem.
