Galatasaray 2015-16 Kit Celebrates An Historical Achievement

Last season Galatasaray became the first Turkish team to win 20 league titles. This historic achievement is celebrated in the club’s new home and away kits, with a fourth gold star situated above the club crest and atop Galatasary’s three existing commemorative markers.

The home kit also honors the club’s distinct 110-year-old tradition of distinguishing the shirt with horizontal color blocking. This season, the design is extended to the shorts and socks, with yellow on the right side of body and red on the left.

The away kit is black with red and yellow stripes, reminiscent of the home kit color blocking, along the flanks.

A proud symbol of club heritage, the new kit is also progressive. It offers the latest in Nike performance innovation, fabric technology, moisture management and environmental sustainability.

Nike Dri-Fit technology

Nike Dri-FIT technology draws sweat away from the body to the exterior of the jersey and short, where it quickly evaporates, keeping players cooler, drier and more comfortable.

Laser-cut ventilation holes and mesh panels in key areas are designed to improve performance by increasing air circulation and helping regulate body temperature.

The jersey features engineered mesh fabric in both its front and back panels to increase airflow and facilitate enhanced movement.

Sustainable innovation

Nike places sustainable innovation at the heart of its kits through the use of recycled polyester, delivering unrivaled performance and lower environmental impact.

Each piece of the kit – shirt, shorts and socks – is constructed with recycled polyester, which is made from recycled plastic bottles melted down to produce a fine yarn then used to create the fabric. Each kit uses an average of 18 recycled plastic bottles. Since 2010, Nike has diverted more than two billion plastic bottles from landfills into recycled polyester – enough to cover about 3,500 football pitches.

By using recycled polyester, Nike is also reducing the energy consumed in the manufacturing process by up to 30 percent compared to virgin polyester. For more information, visit nikebetterworld.com.
