Diadora and The Scottish FA announced the launch of the new Scotland Away Kit which will be worn by the team in the crucial world Cup qualifier in Amsterdam on 28th March 2009. The kit will be on sale the week before the game in order to enable the fans to wear their colours with pride in Holland and is now available to pre-order from today.
The players’ initial reactions on the first viewing have been fantastic, liking it to the previous away strip which has been a players and fans favourite since its launch in 2007.
The Away kit is a true combination of the latest in performance garment technology, Scottish football tradition and Italian styling:
The fabric is composed by a skilful mix of pinstripe jacquard fabric, plain jacquard and elastic net. This mix ensures the maximum transpiration for a more comfortable and healthy sport activity. Thanks to the effect “ULTRA DRY”, humidity and sweat are drawn away from the fabric and are able to evaporate quickly.
The collar, composed with an elastic fabric, is inserted into the shirt ensuring a perfect fitting and maximum comfort as a normal round neck, while adding the classic effect of the traditional collar.
A mesh side panel comes down from the shoulders to the hips creating an exclusive design with a Y shape from front to back.
In the back, just below the neck, there’s the “ALBA”, the ancient Gaelic name of Scotland, just to underline the long Scottish tradition in soccer and favourite fine detailing with the fans.
The exclusive quality seal applied in the bottom rear hem of the shirt is a certificate of the product’s originality and guarantees the Diadora quality standard.
