Eight-time Japanese football champions Kashima Antlers today revealed their Nike home and away kits for their 2020 J1 League and domestic cup seasons.
Versions of the jerseys featuring just the primary shirt sponsor logo will be worn for the club’s upcoming AFC Champions League run.
The Kashima Antlers 2020 Nike home kit expresses “tradition and innovation” based on deep red and dark blue. A sash inspired by Rising ‘A’ of the club’s badge appears on its front.
The design is a first in the team’s seventy-two year history. It is intended to show the Antlers determination and innovation.
Kashima Antlers’ 202 Nike away jersey uses a colorway inspired by the Japanese flag. Its white base with red contrasting elements is meant to show that the side is a team that challenges the world with the pride of Japan.
The alternate uniform theme will be used for all of Nike’s professional teams in Japan during the 2020 season (already seen with the new Urawa Reds away kit).
