The Albanian Football Federation (FSHF) and Macron have introduced the 2023/24 home, away and third kits for the Albanian national team, inspired by the history and tradition of the Shqiponjat (the double-headed eagle).
The Albania men’s senior national football team will debut the match range kits on Monday 27 March, when they take on Poland in the Group E Qualifiers for the EURO 2024.
The Albania 23/24 Macron kits feature a striking graphic motif of the double-headed eagle, a symbol of the Albanian identity, courage and valor. They also showcase a commitment to environmental sustainability, as they are made entirely of Eco Fabric, a material obtained from 100% recycled plastic. This reflects the green philosophy shared by Macron and FSHF.
Albania’s 2023/24 Macron home kit is a red shirt with a black polo shirt collar and three buttons. The sleeves and sides have black cuffs and bands. The back neck displays the FSHF logo, the Macron logo and the words Designed in Bologna, highlighting how each garment is created, designed and developed at Macron headquarters in Bologna. The front and shoulders have a tone-on-tone geometric design with a dye-sub print of the double-headed eagle. The right chest has a silicone print of the Macron Hero logo, while the left chest has the FSHF logo. The back of the collar has ALBANIA embroidered in white. The inside hem has a sweatband with the repeated inscription “Ti Shqipëri, më jep nder” (You Albania, give me honour), an Albanian national motto from a poem by Naim Frashëri. The kit is completed by black shorts and socks with a thin red stripe.
The Albania 23/24 away kit is similar to the home kit, but with a white shirt and shorts. The collar, cuffs and bands are black with a thin red stripe. The logos are also black, while ALBANIA is embroidered in black on the back of the collar. The new Shqiponjat (The Eagles) third kit is all black with red details on the collar, cuffs and bands. The logos are also red. The front and sleeves have a tone-on-tone geometric design with a central print of the double-headed eagle.
