Italian second tier side Pescara have been running a competition in recent weeks which gives young fans the opportunity to design a club shirt.
Named ‘Design the Special Delfino Jersey’, the competition was aimed at easing the boredom of being stuck indoors during the country’s coronavirus lockdown.
Hundreds of youngsters came up with their own design and sent in their submissions and now a winner has been chosen.
Luigi D’Agostino, a six-year-old, came up with a quite beautiful design.
His designed shirt takes inspiration from the club’s crest and features a dolphin heading a football.
It is really quite stunning and you can view it below:
That is beautiful. For a six-year-old to design that is remarkable.
In fact, that may be one of the nicest kits any club has produced this century. That’s how nice it is.
The competition was initially meant to be just a children’s game, but it’s popularity turned it into a business project.
That means people from around the world will be able to buy and wear the sign in the near future.
Italian sports kit supplier Erreà will make the shirts and has invited Luigi to spend a special day at its Parma headquarters, to see the new team strip coming off the production line.
Simone Ciccocioppo, who came second in the competition, will also have his design made and will become the official uniform for the Pescara Football School matches.
Federico Di Biase, who finished third, will be given official Pescara match shirt with name and number.
Well done to Luigi and the other winners. And well done to Pescara; we predict their kit is going to be very popular next season.
