Nike Football unveils New Zealand Away National Team Kit

New Zealand's new away kit celebrates the national symbol in Nike’s most environmentally-friendly kits ever.

The New Zealand All Whites will debut their new Away Jersey against Jamaica on February 29 in Auckland.

The new away shirt is black and skillfully features a tonal effect of the silver fern across the whole of the body. In line with Nike’s commitment to superior athletic performance and lower environmental impact, the fabric of the new kit’s shorts is made with 100% recycled polyester, while the fabric of the shirts is made with at least 96% recycled polyester.  Each kit is made using an average of 13 recycled plastic bottles.

The fabric is also up to 23% lighter than the version four years ago. Embedded with Nike Dri-FIT technology, the kits help to regulate players temperatures on the pitch by removing sweat from the body to keep them dry and cool faster than ever before. 

Laser-cut ventilation on the shirt promotes localised cooling where athletes need it most to remain focused on the game.  A new double knit structure and yarns also makes this kit 20% stronger, with no compromise to fit and feel with natural cotton added for comfort. 

The new away shorts are black, while the new away socks, now with improved cushioning for greater comfort, are also black with ‘New Zealand’ on the back of each calf.
