Mastercard's new player mascot kit set to debut with Lionel Messi

Created by Vision of Super, an Italian designer group, the updated uniform embodies the passion, energy, and optimism of football. On March 8, 2023, it will be worn by one lucky kid who gets to escort the World Cup winner onto the field at Paris Saint-Germain's match in Munich.

UEFA Champions League

The pitch at the Parc des Princes in Paris will get even brighter on 14th February, 2023, as Mastercard debuts its newly redesigned player mascot uniform. The new uniform has style woven into its DNA. Designed by Vision of Super through Mastercard's partnership with Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana, its bold colors of red, orange, and yellow embody the passion, energy, and optimism of football when played on the highest level. While the kit conveys feelings of warmth, arrival, and winning, it's firmly focused on sustainability. Both the shirt and shorts are made from 100% recycled fabrics, lessening the impact on the planet while proving that low impact can still be high in style.


At the return leg against FC Bayern München in Germany on 8th March, one very lucky child will not only get to wear the stylish new kit but also walk out on to the pitch before the game with Paris Saint-Germain superstar—and 2022 World Cup champion—Lionel Messi.
