Malaysia Eschews Metaphor, Cuts Right to the (Clawed) Point

Malaysia Eschews Metaphor, Cuts Right to the (Clawed) Point  1

The tiger-stripe graphic on the home kit is an ode to the fearsome Harimau Malaya.

Malaysia’s football team takes its nickname from the national symbol: the tiger, Harimau Malaya. And for 2018, the side will take the field in a new home kit that makes no mystery of its symbolic guide. Designed with a full-body tiger stripe graphic, the shirt is also the first to bear the new Football Association of Malaysia crest.

Away from Bukit Jalil National Stadium, the team’s strip draws inspiration from the jalur gemilang (stripes of glory) of the Malaysian flag. The shirt has a solid blue body with red shoulders and sleeves and is worn with white shorts and blue socks.
