The Australia Nike 2012/13 away jersey was launched on Sunday. According to the Football Federation Australia website: 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.
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.
