Nike launches new football kit to Team India
With the U17 World Cup in the corner in which India will play host to the official FIFA tournament, Nike has decided to give team India a new look as the kit sponsors have launched the new national kit. 24 teams will be ready to go for the prestigious trophy.
Enthused by the history and heritage of the Blue Tigers, India’s latest Nike national team kit features a new shade of blue and an orange stripe that runs the length of the jersey and shorts. That stripe expands when a player is in motion to maximize ventilation, complementing Nike’s proprietary Dri-FIT technology that helps draw sweat away from the body. These features allow players to perform at their best by remaining cool, dry and more comfortable.
Sunil Chhetri, Indian National team captain says that over the years, he has witnessed the India national team kits evolve as the game has. As we continue our journey in the world of football, Nike’s new innovations in the kit will certainly help the team on the field. The material is much lighter and the air truly flows through the jersey to keep us dry on the pitch
Nike leverages sustainable innovation for its football kits through the use of recycled polyester, delivering unrivaled performance and lower environmental impact. The kit’s shirt and shorts are constructed with recycled polyester fabric, which is made from recycled plastic bottles melted down to produce a fine yarn.
Kushal Das, General Secretary, All India Football Federation expresses his happiness over both the senior and the U17 that they will be wearing kits that includes some of Nike’s most pinnacle innovations in football. The new blue looks for the team will set-off our fearless brand of football well.
