Nike and the Saudi Arabian Football Federation today unveiled the 2014/15 home and away kits of The Green Falcons. Both will be available at Subside Sports.
The Saudi Men’s National Football Team will play in their new Nike home kit for the first time when they meet Qatar in the 2014 Gulf Cup of Nations on November 13. For the season ahead, the team introduces home and away kits that pay homage to the country’s national heritage and feature classic football kit styling.
The new kits feature the signature Saudi white and green palette inspired by the national flag. The home jersey is classic white with green cuffs and green V-neck trim, while the away jersey is green with contrasting white details. White and green shorts and socks complement the jerseys and complete the clean look.
“It’s always an honor for my teammates and I to put on the Saudi national jersey,” said Salem Al-Dawsari, a Saudi National Team member. “I cannot wait to get out to the pitch and do my best to perform at the highest level while wearing our national colors.”
The kit showcases Nike’s belief in style, craft and strong aesthetics, while aiding the performance of players with key technological features.
Teams playing in the upcoming Gulf Cup of Nations in Riyadh can expect temperatures around 27 degrees Celsius (80 degrees Fahrenheit). For athletes training and playing in these conditions, keeping cool is crucial to performance. Nike says that the Saudi National Team kits are designed with optimal cooling solutions to give players a leg up in the heat.
