The home and away kits sport the Qatari colours: white and maroon
Team Al-Annabi will be decked in a different look for their friendly match against Ghana on Monday, October 12.
The new home and away kits by Nike were launched on Oct 11, 2020 and are inspired by traditional colours and the Qatari flag.
The home kit combines maroon shirts, shorts and socks. The focal point of the design is a celebration of the Qatari flag in the shape of a graphic which bristles across the front of the shirt. Slightly darker than most, the shirt, a foldover v-collar and simple sleeve cuffs round off the design of the Nike Qatar 2020 shirt.
Qatar’s away kit sees maroon switch to a supporting role, framing and detailing white shirts, shorts and socks. The jersey has a maroon V-neck collar, cuffs and side stripes.
“This 2020 collection is a really nice blend of Qatari footballing traditions and cutting edge kit design,” says Scott Munson, VP, Nike Football Apparel. “The idea was to take the team’s established identity, those much-loved colours, and put it all through Nike’s modern lens.”
The new kits are a part of Nike’s ‘You can’t stop us’ campaign which has a message of inclusiveness and perseverance at a time when organised sports have been upended by the coronavirus pandemic.
