Nike and Galatasaray Sports Club today unveiled the new team kits for the 2012-2013 season. The new kits for Galatasaray – the team of ‘firsts and bests’ – feature three distinct designs, combining latest technology with a unique design.
Galatasaray’s new home kits fuse together the iconic red and yellow uniform with a modern expression. While the kit symbolises Galatasaray’s deep-rooted heritage, the design is inspired by the traditional and uncompromising enthusiasm that Galatasaray fans have for their team. The red and yellow collar detail adds an avant-garde touch to the kit.
The new away kits in white symbolise the new era ahead for Galatasaray, growing prodigiously with its new spirit and vision. The modern interpretation of the red and yellow graphic situated across the heart celebrates Galatasaray’s successful rich culture and heritage .
The third kit fuses a two-tone version of Galatasaray’s iconic red with black design details, symbolising the team’s history of victory.
Designed to deliver excellent comfort and performance, the kits feature Nike’s patented Dri-FIT technology to wick sweat away from players to help keep them cool and dry on the pitch. The ventilation zones on the sides also enhance temperature regulation.
The new kits are made from fabric constructed from recycled plastic bottles, making them Nike’s most environmentally friendly kits ever produced. Each kit (shirt and shorts) is made using up to thirteen recycled plastic water bottles. This manufacturing process reduces energy consumption by up to 30% compared with manufacturing traditional polyester. Nike has used an estimated 115 million recycled plastic bottles to create its high performance national team and club kits since 2010.
