AC Milan Launch Tribute Shirt TO Help Ukraine
The shirt is inspired by former striker and Ukraine icon Andriy Shevchenko.
AC Milan are showing their support for the people of Ukraine by releasing a special edition shirt - inspired by their former Ukrainian striker Andriy Shevchenko.
The Serie A giants will donate the proceeds of the shirt sales to the victims of Russia's invasion, as they ask for 'peace' during the conflict with a nod to their iconic ex-player Shevchenko.
The jersey gets its inspiration from the 2002-03 Champions League final kit Shevchenko wore in Manchester against Juventus - which Milan won on penalties - but it has been modified to include the blue and yellow from Ukraine's flag on the shoulders, as well as 'AC Milan for peace' on the front.
There is even a Ukraine flag on the top left where the club's manufacturer's logo would normally be, in a mark of respect to the country and its commitment to the humanitarian efforts to save lives.
The shirts - called 'the Special Edition – Manchester 2003 for Ukraine' will feature Shevchenko's name and his iconic number seven on the back. Fans can pick up one of the kits from AC Milan's official website for 50 euros ($55), with all the money going towards the Italian Red Cross and their project in Ukraine.
