Danish brand Hummel this morning launched the new Afghanistan home and away jerseys, with the women’s shirts featuring an integrated hijab baselayer for the very first time.

Afghanistan 2016 Home Kit

This is the new Afghanistan jersey by Hummel.

Predominantly red, the ‘Lions of Afghanistan’ are embossed in to the front and back of the new Afghanistan shirt. With printed Hummel signature chevrons on the sleeves, the Afghanistan 2016 kit also comes with the badge of the Afghanistan Football Federation (AFF) in a 3D effect and an embroidered Hummel logo. The AFF’s founding year 1922 is printed on the upper back of the new Afghanistan jersey.

Afghanistan 2016 Away Shirt

This is the new Hummel Afghanistan away kit.

Based on the same template as the home kit, the new Afghanistan 2016 away kit is predominantly white. The cuffs and hem of the Afghanistan away shirt are black, while the collar is green and black. The inside of the Afghanistan away shirt, as well as the front and back show the ‘Lions of Afghanistan’ motif.

“From the outset it was clear that the shirt was enormously significant,” says Hummel designer Paul Fitzgerald. “I asked Khalida (Popal, the former captain of the Afghanistan women’s team) to think of something that inspires her about Afghanistan and she told me about the Afghan mountains – that was really my starting point.

Hummel designed a special hijab baselayer for the Afghanistan 2016 women’s jerseys that enables the country’s female footballers to be play while being covered head to toe. From each Afghanistan shirt sold Hummel donate €15 to the Afghanistan women’s team.
