Nike have provided the Qantas Socceroos with a brand new away kit which will be used in the upcoming FIFA World Cup Qualifying campaign.
Nike have designed a new away kit for the Qantas Socceroos to celebrate the vibrancy, energy and modern approach of both the nation and football team.
In line with Nike-s commitment to superior athletic performance and lower environmental impact, the fabric of the new kit-s shorts is made with 100% recycled polyester, while the fabric of the shirts is made with at least 96% recycled polyester. Each kit is made using an average of 13 recycled plastic bottles.
The fabric is also up to 23 per cent lighter than the version four years ago. Embedded with Nike Dri-FIT technology, the kits help to regulate players temperatures on the pitch by removing sweat from the body to keep them dry and cool faster than ever before.
Laser-cut ventilation on the shirt promotes localised cooling where athletes need it most to remain focused on the game.
A new double knit structure and yarns also makes this kit 20 per cent stronger, with no compromise to fit and feel with natural cotton added for comfort.
The new Australia away shirt has an obsidian blue body with a new and bold yellow stripe along the entire left side, which runs through the national coat of arms, and reflects both the nation-s modernity, and the contrasting and bright light of the vast Australian landscapes.
On the right sleeve is a smaller yellow stripe, which completes the stripe on the body of the shirt, while inside the neck is the Football Federation Australia badge.
The new away shorts are obsidian blue, while the new away socks, now with improved cushioning for greater comfort, are also obsidian blue with ‘Australia- on the back of each calf.
