Adidas and the Argentine Football Association (AFA) have unveiled the new home kit for the Argentina national team for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, as the World Cup journey jersey.
Argentina national team jersey is a symbol of national pride, second only to the national flag. Guided by the new slogan “El sentimiento de un país” (The emotion of a nation), the new jersey pays tribute to the Argentine national sentiment and identity, helping to unite all the teams and fans of the Argentine Football Federation.
New shirt comes in classic white and sky blue, with two elements from the Argentine flag on the back: the first is the central stripe, symbolizing the draped flag, like the one fans hang from their balconies during the World Cup; the second is the “May Sun” motif on the back collar, part of the Argentine flag and emblem.
Soccer is an essential part of traditional Argentine culture, bringing together family and friends, waving flags together in front of the screen or on the sidelines. The new jersey also represents the passion of the Argentine fans, which is expected to unite the entire team.
Pablo Lamo, General Manager of Adidas Argentina, said: “Football is synonymous with Argentina. As the home of many international soccer stars, Argentina has a deep and strong connection with soccer. Soccer is not only a sport, but also a symbol of Argentine national identity. The sun on the flag symbolizes brilliance, just as the Argentine national soccer team won the World Cup twice, in 1978 and 1986, and reached the World Cup finals twice more.”
