Canada Soccer and Umbro have proudly unveiled their new 2018 home shirt for Canada Soccer's National Teams.
Presented with the powerful words drawn from Canada’s national anthem - On Guard For Thee – the new jersey represents a dynamic and diverse nation from coast-to-coast-to-coast. Those four words will serve as a reminder of the nation that Canada represents every time the new jersey is worn in international competition.
The jersey is also inspired by one of Canada’s most symbolic emblems, the Canadian maple leaf. That leaf is featured prominently on the front of the jersey along with the clean classic lines that have come to define an Umbro Canada Soccer kit.
The back neck of the jersey features the Canadian flag in pride of place while the now iconic Canadian soundwave - representing the Canadian national anthem, inspired by Canadian supporters - remains prominent on the left hip.
The jersey is made from spun polyester which is a fabric offering the tactile handle of a cotton fibre with all the benefits of a high performance polyester yarn for the best temperature management. The jersey also features ergonomic cut lines across the upper arms and shoulders for ease of movement along with tonal mesh venting under the arms for added comfort.
Canada Soccer's custom and distinctive "Les Rouges" font for lettering and numbering will continue to be featured. Each character symbolizes the strength of ice that is precisely chiseled to bring Canada's northern beauty to light. At the same time, the type face embodies the determination and resilience that Canada Soccer's national teams demonstrate each time they step on the pitch to represent their country.
