Diadora and The Scottish FA announced the launch of the new Scotland Away Kit on March 9, 2009. The new kit will be worn by the Scottish national football team for the first time during their FIFA World Cup Qualifier against Holland in Amsterdam on 28th March 2009.
According to www.scottishfa.co.uk, the Soctland 2009/10 Diadora away jersey features the following:
The fabric is composed by a skilful mix of pinstripe jacquard fabric, plain jacquard and elastic net. This mix ensures the maximum transpiration for a more comfortable and healthy sport activity. Thanks to the effect “ULTRA DRY”, humidity and sweat are drawn away from the fabric and are able to evaporate quickly.
The collar, composed with an elastic fabric, is inserted into the shirt ensuring a perfect fitting and maximum comfort as a normal round neck, while adding the classic effect of the traditional collar.
A mesh side panel comes down from the shoulders to the hips creating an exclusive design with a Y shape from front to back.
In the back, just below the neck, there’s the “ALBA”, the ancient Gaelic name of Scotland, just to underline the long Scottish tradition in soccer and favourite fine detailing with the fans.
The exclusive quality seal applied in the bottom rear hem of the shirt is a certificate of the product’s originality and guarantees the Diadora quality standard.
