FC Astana 17-18 Home Kit

This is the new Astana 2017-2018 home shirt.



Featuring the club's traditional yellow and light blue colors, the new FC Astana 17-18 home kit comes with a unique stylized image of the Shanyrak on the front. The Shanyrak is a traditional emblem of the Kazakh culture.

Kaisar Bekenov, executive director of Astana, said: "Astana is the only club in the country that represents Kazakhstan in the UEFA Champions League, so we would like that even the kit of the team would emphasize that we will present our country on the international arena. Shanyrak is an unusual graphic element that has become symbolic for Kazakhstan. There is a great desire that, at one glance at our outfit, lovers of football of both our country and Europe know that there is a club from Kazakhstan on the field."



"We waited a long time for permission from UEFA in order that Astana could defend Kazakhstan's honor in the Champions League in this kit. Finally, all the approvals have been passed, and we are ready to play in the new exclusive outfit. In a couple of weeks we will hold an official presentation of the kit. Moreover, in addition to men, women's and children's lines will be presented"

Astana's new 17-18 away kit will be light blue and grey with the same design as the home kit, while the third jersey will be white with a blue geometrical pattern in blue. There are no pictures of the away and third kits yet.
