The new OM home jersey for the 2022-2023 season has just been unveiled this Friday by PUMA.
Just under a month from the launch of the new Ligue 1 season, PUMA has decided to officially release the new home shirt that Olympique de Marseille players will wear throughout the 2022-2023 financial year. An announcement coming just two days after the return to training of Jorge Sampaoli’s men.
First element to report, and not least, this new outfit remains composed of a dominant white, like all the home jerseys of the club of the Marseille city, like the one worn by Dimitri Payet, Arkadiusz Milik or William Saliba at home last season.
The return of royal blue, mythical
On the other hand, the sky blue that generally accompanies the white color gives way this time to a darker blue, called royal blue, far from being unknown to regulars at the Orange Vélodrome. Indeed, this color was for example used on the tunics of the Marseille club in the 1970s and 1980s.

“For the 2022-2023 season, it is a glorious part of the club’s history that inspired the design of the new Olympique de Marseille home shirt. Between retro influences and modern details, this jersey is a link between the 70s and the 2022-2023 season.specifies the Olympian press release published for the occasion.
This blue color, in the form of edging, is present at the level of the collar, cut in a V, as well as at the end of the sleeves. On the front of this new home kit, there are also very subtle vertical stripes bringing a special touch visually.
The communication around this new jersey is turned towards the sacred union on the side of the Canebière. The motto “Wear our colors to carry a whole people” accompanies in this sense the reveal of this new “home kit” made for the men of Jorge Sampaoli.
Big first for Cazoo
If the OM crest is embroidered in blue with the star and the club’s motto “Droit au but” in gold, the great novelty of this jersey remains the appearance of the new jersey sponsor, Cazoo. The English online car sales company replaces Uber Eats after a three-season partnership. The amount of the lease linking the two entities has not filtered, but it is higher than the annual €5 million that Uber Eats has paid to OM lately.
Finally, concerning the technology of this new elite kit that the Olympians will wear on the Canebière in Ligue 1 as in the Champions League, this elite shirt is based on the PUMA ULTRAWEAVE model. This is the lightest material on the market, with a base weighing only 72 grams. It remains to be seen whether this kit from the feline brand, equipment supplier to OM since the 2018-2019 season after taking over from adidas, will be validated by the people of Marseille.
