Beijing Guo’an’s home kit continues its association with the team’s classic green uniforms of previous seasons. The design features a mosaic of Canyon Green and Lucky Green for a unique visual impact. The “YU” character on the back of the collar is inspired by the palace guards and Chinese seal, an important reflection of the city. The palace guards served during the most illustrious period in the history of ancient China’s imperial forces, and this Beijing-inspired design instills pride in the players and the fans.

In addition the kits for the 2013 season are made with recycled polyester spun from recycled plastic bottles, a sustainable innovation that Nike first introduced in 2010.
The recycled fabric features Nike Dri-FIT technology and incorporates laser-cut ventilation holes, both of which promote cooling to help regulate the players’ temperature. In addition to the performance-driven technical design, each kit carries subtle cues tied to the team’s heritage, values, pride and the tradition of their respective home cities.
