Football Federation Australia has released the home and away kits that will be worn by the Socceroos and Matildas during the 2020/21 international soccer calendar.
The Australia 2020/21 home and away jerseys were unveiled by Nike athletes and Aussie internationals Sam Kerr, Ellie Carpenter, Caitlin Foord, Kyah Simon, Hayley Raso, Trent Sainsbury, Awer Mabil, Adam Taggart and Jamie Maclaren on the FFA website.
According to FFA: The refined home jersey is a traditional Australian gold, elevated by a green colour blocked polo collar. The reintroduction of green shorts gives the athletes a classic home kit that embodies the DNA of Australian football. The kit is completed with gold socks.
The Australia 2020/21 Nike away kit reintroduces a fresh water jersey, fresh water socks and deep obsidian shorts. The colour is a contemporary take on the 2004 Socceroos kit, which was the first official kit released by Nike for the Socceroos and debuted in Sydney when Australia played Turkey in front of nearly 30,000 fans.
The obsidian shorts also revisit Australia’s football heritage, with navy having featured regularly in the national away kit. A Southern Cross appears as the outer pride element on the back of the away jersey.
The 20/21 home and away kits feature Australian Federation crests on both jersey and shorts. In addition, both kits feature a jagged side stripe, which extends with a full swing of the leg and transitions into a vibrant yellow stripe on the away kit and a classic green stripe on the home kit.
