The Scottish FA launched the new adidas Scotland home kit, which will be worn against the Czech Republic at Hampden on Wednesday night and then for the European Championship Qualifying Campaign.
adidas have designed the kit to reflect Scotland’s long football heritage. With a classic look of dark navy shirt with white trim, white shorts, and bright red socks it draws inspiration from the national flag, the team crest and past iconic strips.
The replica home kit will be available in the FSC Shop. in June 2010 followed by the training wear in July. The away kit will be launched in August and the Leisure wear in Spring/Summer 2011.
The new shirt incorporates the following adidas technologies:
• ClimaCool™ - engineered mesh that allows heat and sweat to escape while bringing cooling air into contact with the skin. All seams are sewn flat to reduce irritation while running, and engineered fabric offers open mesh in critical heat zones.
• ForMotion™ - allows complete freedom of movement. Radical cuts and 3D designs follow the shape of your body to increase comfort and improve performance.
Styled in the national colours with a large embossed tonal Scotland crest on the front of the shirt the kit has a great sense of pride and honour. The bright red socks, with the word “Alba” knitted in, emphasises the patriotic feel to the kit and the high quality finish, alongside the woven badge on the chest, will inspire greatness.
