Australia 2018 World Cup Home and Away Kits + Pre-Match Jersey Revealed

Australia 2018 World Cup Home Kit

The Australia 2018 World Cup jersey is golden with a dark green collar and a unique graphic print on the sleeves. This Australia 2018 kit sleeve graphic is inspired by one of the most important moments in Australia football history, the decisive 2006 World Cup qualifier that was played on November 16, 2005, and which saw the Socceroos return to the biggest stage after 32 years.
“In the days before Australia's triumphant game in '05, the team captain issued a public statement requesting the support of every Socceroo fan inside and outside the stadium to create a sea of gold,” says Pete Hoppins, Nike Football Apparel Senior Design Director. “It’s that battle cry that inspired the home kit.”
Tech-wise, the Australia 2018 World Cup home shirt is based on Nike's latest template and kit tech.
A fresh look and significant change from the regular gold shirt and green shorts, the Australia 2018 World Cup kit is gold from top to bottom.
Australia 2018 World Cup Away Kit
This is the Australia 2018 away jersey by Nike.
The Australia 2018 away shirt is a much more understated look. Predominantly dark green, it features bright lime yellow accents in the form of the Swoosh on the right chest and taping on the inside neck.
“Green and gold are the colors of the Australian national team, so we wanted to celebrate that directly with a green away kit. The sharp graphic on the away shirt is a reference to the sharp points on the kit worn on November 16, 2005,” says Hoppins.
Finally, a bold graphic print is present on the front of the Australia 2018 World Cup away jersey.
