PUMA and the Austria Football Federation (ÖFB) have presented the new home playing kit that “Das Team” (The Team) will wear at UEFA EURO 2016. The new kit will be worn on pitch for the first time when Austria face the Swiss national team in a friendly match on 17 November, Ernst-Happel-Stadion, Vienna.
Featuring a prominent, diagonal stripe fade graphic through a sublimation print, the Austria EURO 2016 PUMA home kit has a striking look. Further detail comes with the white Form Stripes located along the sleeves, nicely finished off by Austrian national flags on each arm.
The Austrian federation slogan ‘Immer wieder Österreich’ (Always Austria) is printed on the back neck, with the ÖFB badge and PUMA Cat featuring on the chest. A classic crew neck collar finalises the overall design. The new red home shirt is complemented by red socks and white shorts that feature red vertical stripe inserts on each side.
Martin Harnik of the Austrian national team said, “Today’s launch of our new team kit is an exciting moment for us. I really like the design features and the fit of the ACTV technology is excellent and very comfortable.
Finishing first in our group for the qualification of the Euros in France was a fantastic result for us and gives us great confidence. We know that we have a strong squad, and we will continue to work hard together leading up to the tournament.”
