Nike Swoosh is another necessary element to be shown on each match jersey for easy brand recognition.

Blue shorts also have two breathable stripes on both sides. There are six navy blue stripes on white socks.

This away jersey offers a perfect fit thanks to the V neck and short sleeves, along with Nike Dri-Fit technology to help wick moisture away from the skin to keep players dry and comfortable. In addition, its fabric is made from cotton and recycled polyester, thus the shirt becomes much softer and lighter than previous shirts.
All football shirts produced by Nike not only show unmatched design details but also reduce the impact on environment in manufacturing processes.
