This is the new Scotland home 08/10 home kit made by Diadora. The kit has been revealed to the national press at Stirling Castle.
The new Home kit is a true combination of the latest in performance garment technology, Scottish football tradition and Italian styling and will be worn by the team for the first time against Northern Ireland on the 20th August 2008 at Hampden Park.
Fabio Malipiero, European Sales Director Diadora UK commented,
“The partnership between the Scottish F.A. and Diadora has grown with each new kit produced for the national team utilising all of our design, technologies and expertise in the technical apparel business which has seen, in our opinion some of the greatest kits produced in the modern game. Following the near qualification in the recent European Championships and previous success of the Home, Away and 3rd kits we’ve had a challenge to produce a product suitable for the Players, staff and fans alike to a level to which they have come accustomed too and most importantly deserve, but we have!
We’ve researched the history, heritage and requirements of the team to design a new Home kit which we hope will inspire the team to great performances in the forthcoming world cup qualifying campaign and see them into the Finals in South Africa 2010.”
Scotland National Team Coach, George Burley said:
"Representing your country is one of the proudest achievements any Scottish footballer can ever hope to achieve. You can scale the heights of club football, but the feeling you get when you pull on that famous dark blue jersey is almost impossible to beat. Diadora have really done their homework with this new kit. It has all the hallmarks of the great Scotland strips of old and I know that it will help inspire the current generation of stars as we set out on the road to South Africa. The fans are going to love it."
