Norway 2016 National Football Kits

The Norway National Football Team unveils new home and away kits that reflect national pride.

NORWAY HOME AND AWAY KITS

The vivid red home shirt and white home shorts with navy blue trim reference the national flag while the all-white away kit nods to tradition. A further ode to national pride, the word “Norge” appears on shirts’ back collars and the Norwegian Football Association’s gold-trimmed crest appears on the chest.

The sides of both kits feature navy blue stripes that run the length of the shirt and shorts. Expanding when the player is in motion, they maximize ventilation and reveal flashes of underlying white. In the home kit, white socks showcase a linear blue graphic on the calf while the away kit's socks are navy blue. Both highlight the most dynamic part of the footballer’s body, the lower legs, to accentuate speed.

While this new kit serves to inspire national pride, it has also been created to give players the very latest in Nike’s innovations, encompassing fabric construction, performance technology, moisture management and environmental sustainability.

The Norway National Football Team will debut the new away kit March 24 during an international friendly game against Estonia. The kit is available beginning that same day at nike.com.

Nike Dri-FIT technology

Nike Dri-FIT technology draws sweat away from the body to the exterior of the shirts and shorts, where it quickly evaporates. This allows players to perform at their best by remaining cooler, drier and more comfortable.

The laser-cut ventilation holes and mesh panels in key areas of the kit are designed to improve performance by increasing air circulation to the players’ bodies and helping regulate their temperatures.

The shirt is crafted using mesh fabric that makes up the full front and back panels of the shirt, increasing airflow and facilitating enhanced movement.

Commitment to Sustainability

Nike leverages sustainable innovation for its football kits through the use of recycled polyester, delivering unrivaled performance and lower environmental impact.

The kit’s shirt and shorts are constructed with recycled polyester fabric, which is made from recycled plastic bottles melted down to produce a fine yarn.

Each kit is made using approximately 16 recycled plastic bottles. Since 2010, Nike has diverted more than three billion plastic bottles from landfills into recycled polyester, enough to cover about 5,200 football pitches.
