Adidas & AS Roma Stop Using Stock Image 23-24 Home Kit Font – Play With Blank Shirts Instead

Adidas & AS Roma Stop Using Stock Image 23-24 Home Kit Font - Play With Blank Shirts Instead

Update on July 26: AS Roma have stopped printing their Adidas 2023-2024 kits for their home kit following the controversy over the numbers that have watermarks from stock images. In lieu, Roma participated in the first games in preseason without names or numbers.

Orders with names or numbers will be delayed to “even more than 15 days”. According to Adidas their official website there is no way to buy a shirt using the default font.

Update, July 12, 10/11 July Footy Headlines spotted that the new Roma home kit numbers 23-24 include Alamy watermarks. Now AS Roma are taking steps to get rid of the Alamy watermark from the numbering of the new kits, according to Il Tempo. This error could not have been committed by the club itself or Adidas the company, but by the third party supplier that mistakenly employed the Falda map that was based off the image of a photograph in an archives database.

These images show that the numbers have the Alamy watermarks even if they’re not obvious. It is yet to be determined whether buyers receive compensation.

The brand new AS Roma numbers feature a delicate graphic depicting the history of Rome. It is, however, not an original design.

The photo that appears on those AS Roma 23-24 kit numbers does not come from a custom design, but instead based on an image by Alamy.

Similar images are available on Wikipedia with no watermarks.

In the least, the letter logo in the Alamy logo is similar to the one logo of AS Roma, but there is a complete Alamy logo to be seen.

It is worth noting that the AS Roma 23-24 kit numbers add 20 euros. It is yet to be determined when Roma are going to change the font of their kit.

Footy Headlines believe it was the club, not Adidas who made use of the photo from stock.

Have you expected Roma to choose watermarks on a standard image in their 2023-2024 kit number? Let us know by leaving a comment below.
