The Italy 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup home kit has been officially launched by the Azzurri’s techical sponsor PUMA. Designed specifically for this summer’s tournamentin Brazil, the new shirt will be available at World Soccer Shop and Kitbag.
According to PUMA: Watch out, world. Gli Azzurri are suited up in their latest kit, made for this summer’s competition in Brasil. It’s a bolder evolution of past shirts: fluorescent blue piping and colored cuffs provide a fresh take on the team’s signature hue as well as the national flag of Italy. The shirt will unify the team (and its fans) as they prepare for their 5th star pursuit the following year.
The shirt’s design considers heritage as well as the players’ physical qualities. The official team shirt is made of recycled polyester and Cocona (an activated carbon made from coconut shells) to provide a superior level of comfort and moisture management. The official team replica shirt is made of 100% recycled polyester.
Both the official shirt and replica shirt are engineered for embracing mates and hoisting trophies as needed.
Italy is pooled with hosts Brazil, Mexico and Japan in Group A of the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup.
