The 2022 World Cup in Qatar is still some ways away thanks to this year’s shall-we-say “unique” timeline for the world-famous event, but the celebrations can begin a bit early for 13 lucky nations.
On Thursday, Nike revealed its 2022 World Cup kits for Australia, Brazil, Canada, Croatia, England, France, the Netherlands, Portugal, South Korea, Poland, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United States. And Boardroom wants to give you your first look.
Behold — the Australia 2022 World Cup jersey in all its glory.
Nike’s Australia 2022 World Cup Kit
Currently ranked No. 39 in the FIFA World Rankings, there’s no denying which country is Australia thanks to the familiar brightly-colored shirts fans are used to seeing.
As Nike says of the design of the 2022 Australia World Cup jersey and associated apparel collection:
“The 2022 kit evokes Australia’s unique ecosystems. Through University Gold, Tour Yellow and Green Noise, the home kit conjures the rugged, sandy landscape of the Outback and the rich wetlands and forests. The away kit is a homage to the Australian coastlines and teeming ocean. Obsidian and Green Glow represent the marine life and reefs and signal the deep connection between Australians and coastal life.”
