The shirt was unchanged from the previous season, apart from the inclusion of the Scudetto.

Having made it to the European Cup final against Steaua Bucharest - a game where both teams changed kit - Milan wore a white shirt devoid of the horizontal stripe, similar to what was used when they beat Benfica in 1963. It proved a lucky omen as Arrigo Sacchi's side won 4-0 in Barcelona.

The change shirt was the same as 1995-96, albeit with the crest moved to the left sleeve to accommodate the Scudetto and that was replicated on the new home, third and fourth strips. The new white home shirts were also paired with the away jersey.

The main noticeable change on the home shirt was with the collar and cuffs. The black third shirt was only worn twice competitively, against Sampdoria and Vicenza (Coppa Italia) while the red fourth saw action against Juventus, Lazio and Rosenborg in the game that saw Milan exit the Champions League at the group stage.

For that match, the modified Opel logo for Europe was used while the Lotto wordmark appeared on its own rather than with the logo.


Back to wider stripes, this time trimmed in the Italian tricolour.
Black change shorts.
White away socks, used in the Milan derby 'away' to Inter.
For the first time since 1994, the traditional red and black horizontal bar was across the chest.
Red change shorts, worn away to Bologna.


Unusual but not unattractive, the kit featured pockets on the shirt and shorts as well as national flag motifs. The socks differed slightly from the home set.
