The result is a mixed bag. While the home shirt is kept in green and white with a sparkle of red thrown in, the away shirt looks completely different as it has blue as the main colour.
And while this may look unfamiliar, strange even, it is a reference to the early 20th century when the club’s colours were indeed blue and white stripes. Only after merging with l’Olympique, a club that was established in 1908 and was based in Pantin, later in Paris.
Referring to the club’s history is very good, though it is questionable whether it was necessary to use artificial intelligence to do so. For the season ahead, Red Star should aim to get promoted and establish themselves in the second division.
