Sydney FC’s much anticipated 2021/22 playing kits can finally be revealed, with advanced technological and design features lending a fresh and improved look to the latest outfits.
Months of detailed design work have gone into ensuring the new shirts are unique at every distance and include a range of custom Sydney FC features.
The new Under Armour ‘Clasico’ home jersey reveals a traditional, clean, all Sky Blue look, taking inspiration from the skies above the harbour city we represent.
Details include a raised 3D Sydney FC badge and new back of neck logo, incorporating the club’s iconic “We Are Sydney” slogan.
UA’s ‘Capitano’ away jersey features a white upper and mid-section blending into a Sky Blue lower half.
The sublimation of the Sydney Opera House sail, which is a continuation of the first Under Armour range for Sydney FC, as well as branded trims are key features of both shirts.
The new 'Violet Night' Sydney FC alternate kit draws from the Sydney night’s sky. The Opera House tile design with a black gradient fades into a midnight plum bottom half and symbolises the city skyline in a thunderstorm, along with the unique colours of our cities skies.
The striking dark kit will disrupt the league and will be a stand out in 2022.
Under Armour’s brand new HeatGear technology is also a major component.
The super-breathable fabric absorbs sweat and regulates the body temperature so players feel cooler, drier and lighter which will help enhance player performance.
Sydney FC attacking midfielder and Under Armour Ambassador Milos Ninkovic loves the new designs.
“I think they are great, and I am looking forward to playing in them,” he said.
“Time after time the designs keep improving and I think we will stand out as having the A-League’s best kit.
“It’s good to know our home shirt will be the one true, Sky Blue jersey this season.”
Under Armour Ambassador and Sky Blues’ defender Angelique Hristodoulou is excited to be part of the unveiling.
“I really think everyone will love the new look and designs,” she said.
“The jerseys will give Sydney FC Members a lot of clout when wearing them.
“They feel so light and smooth to run in and are fresh and innovative kits so I’m sure our players will enjoy playing in them.”
The home kit has dark blue playing shorts, with a Sky Blue stripe through the lower back part, as well as traditional all Sky Blue socks.
It’s a similar story with the away kit, where the shorts are all Sky Blue with a white stripe in the lower back half, plus Sky Blue socks.
The Sydney FC alternate third kit shorts and socks are a blend of purple and black.
