Shit Kits: Reggina Calcio Wear Strip Emblazoned With Fake ‘Ancient Greek Statue’ Torsos

By Chris Wright

Just take a butcher’s at this eyesore would ya?


Specially produced for their recent ‘Reggio di Calabria’ derby game against sworn enemies Crotone, Serie B side Reggina Calcio hoped that a shirt designed to look like the chiselled, weather-worn torso of an Ancient Greek statue would strike the fear of the Gods into their local rivals (the goalkeeper’s similarly Adonis-esque jersey is on the right in the second image). It resoundingly failed to do so.

Despite the kit representing ‘the pride of the land’ being etched onto the Reginna players’ skin, the game ended in a dull 1-1 draw.┬áReggina also had two men sent off, presumably for attempting to smite their opponents down with plagues, boils and the like.

(Via Reggina Calcio, thanks to Pies fan @r_shauss for the tip-off)

Pssst. This way for loads more ‘Shit Kits’ on Pies…

    Is it April 1st??

    Jersey Shore’s “The Situation” will be penning a lawsuit, no doubt.

    My little brother, even when he quite young, hated Reggina because “their logo is so stupid”. I’m getting him one of these…things. What an awesome jersey.

  4. Jay Jay says:

    Great shirt for the fans as well as the players for visual effects! Don’t need to go to the gym now :D Love the shirt

  5. Hey ma, get off tha dang roof! says:

    I don’t think the people who made the video actually wanted me to see it. They rotate the guy about 100 times and keep flashing him up with the other kit and zoom in and out all MTV style.

  6. Jarren says:

    I’m going to buy one, spray myself liberally with Lynx, use Figo’s hair dye and go out and get myself some laydees.

    Shit, I forgot the chloroform.

  7. Marcos says:

    here I have two suggestions: 1997 Newell’s Old Boys (Argentina)
    or search in Google images for the Uruguayan GK Pablo Aurrecochea (absolutely no words ’bout him lol)

  8. Dick Naylor says:

    *Jarren spot on
    A true Mediterranean style kit must involve involve glued on back hair.
    Most importantly it should reek of cheap cologne and shitty house music.

  9. kurt says:

    hardly a greek statue when it’s an italian side

    • Chris says:

      @kurt: Reggio, the surrounding area of Calabria and a lot of southernmost Italy has a rich Greek heritage dating back to before the Romans stuck their big ugly oar in during the 3rd century so…y’know.

  10. gamblino says:

    The video is a shocker! It makes them seem embarrassed to show the shirt clearly!

  11. Fat Nakago says:

    @Marcos Damn, man…you were quite right about Pablo Aurrecochea! There are absolutely NO words for this: except for possibly YIKES!!

    As for the Reggina Calcio kit, that is almost as dreadful and far less amusing, than Aurrecochea’s goalie kits.

    haha givova – give over !
