PUMA Football has released the away kit that be worn by the Iceland men’s and women’s national teams over the next year.
The Iceland 2020/21 alternate jersey uses the same PUMA v-neck design as the FIFA World Cup 2018 qualifiers’ new home shirt.
The mainly white shirt features an all-over graphic inspired by the volcanic activity of Iceland and its stunning natural beauty. Iceland is situated on a constructive plate boundary, resulting in the generation of spectacular natural formations, shapes and colors as molten basalt protrudes from within the Earth’s surface.
The basalt then reacts with icy fresh air, leading to the production of unique and uniformed columns, symbolized by the red columns situated on the true-blue and electric blue base of the jersey. To complement the jersey, the kit also features true-blue and electric-blue shorts and socks.
Adorned on the jersey is the newly developed KSI logo taking inspiration from the guardian spirits of Iceland. The new logo represents solidarity and protecting one’s position, the home turf other teams should fear.
The spirit symbols are famous in Icelandic folklore paying tribute to the country’s fighting spirit and heritage. The logo features a modern version of the guardian spirits, showcasing the four spirits intertwined to form a single entity, the bull, the giant, the vulture and the dragon.
