The Portugal National Football Team’s new away kit features subtle nods to Portuguese national symbols, and colors expressing the team’s unique playing style. The jersey is primarily black, a classic color used for Portugal jerseys in the past. In contrast with the black, a graphic pattern of electric green and vivid red light flashes is featured across the chest. The colors, inspired by the Portuguese national flag, move in opposition to each other: the red starts from the right and the green from the left. The graphic is meant to highlight the team's fast-pace style of play on the pitch.
Simple & Striking Details
The black jersey features Nike's new modern V-neck in matching black, with a red ribbed band at the back. Inside the jersey, below the red band, a pennant tab displays an armillary sphere, an ancient navigational device. Historical Portuguese explorers used armillary spheres to travel the globe, and now it serves as a national symbol representing the country’s seafaring history. The names and numbers on the back of the away shirt feature a unique Art Deco-inspired yet modern typeface. The rest of the kit allows the chest graphic to be the distinguishing feature. The away shorts are solid black with only a red Nike swoosh and Portuguese crest for detail. The away socks are black with a wide tonal chevron pattern on the calf.
