The Scottish Football Association and technical sponsor adidas unveiled the white, red and yellow Scotland 2015/15 away kit on Wednesday. It is now available at JD Sports along with the Scots 2014 home shirt.
According to the SFA: The shirt is a fun, modern interpretation of one of Scotland’s most iconic jerseys and pays homage to the colours of Lord Rosebery.
First worn in the 1880s and continued throughout the next two decades, Scotland played in the primrose hoops which were synonymous as the racing colours of racehorse owner Archibald Philip Primrose, Lord Rosebery, who was an early patron of Scottish football.
The unique colour combination was resurrected as an away strip after World War II and will now be used by Gordon Strachan’s side on the march to France for the European Championship campaign.
The adidas kit features a newly designed full-colour crest, framed by an iconic pink band, with four further yellow bands gradiating through the jersey. It’s reminiscent of another fans’ favourite – the Scotland UEFA Euro 92 away jersey.
A button-down collar, three pink stripes and pink trims on the neck and sleeve hem complete the cool new look.
Described by the design team at adidas as ‘disruptive’, Scotland will be looking to cause a few upsets in qualifying group E, where they will face Germany, Republic of Ireland, Poland, Georgia and Gibraltar.
