During the late December to January period, the Japan adidas 2012/13 home, away, goalkeeper and women’s kits were launched. Now the Japanese Football Association (JFA) and adidas have unveiled a special edition away kit to be worn by the Japan men’s Under-23 and senior women’s team for the 2012 London Olympics football tournament.
Featuring a rising Phoenix across its front, the red kit with dark blue accents does not include the JFA crest because of Olympic regulations. It is replaced with an embroidered Japanese flag with the text “Japan” underneath.
As with the its 12/13 kits, the Japan adidas 2012 London Olympics away jersey was launched using the “Nippon is in all” concept. A fan version of the shirt with the text “all support for Japan” across the front is also available.
