Rejected Nike Galatasaray 100-Year of Turkish Republic Anniversary Kit Leaked

We have some rare kit news from Turkey as we get a look at a rejected Nike Galatasaray 2023-2024 kit design. Big thanks to esvaphane for the info and pictures.

This leaked Nike jersey was proposed by Nike to become the official Galatasaray 23-24 third kit that celebrates the 100th anniversary of the Turkish Republic. However, it was ultimately rejected by the club. Galatasaray instead opted for a new yellow-red striped jersey, paying homage to the striped jersey worn in the 1920s.

Nike's Rejected Galatasaray 100th Anniversary of Turkish Republic Prototype Kit

This is the new Nike Galatasaray 100-year Anniversary of Turkish Republic third prototype jersey for 23-24.

The Nike Galatasaray S.K. 2023-24 100 years of Turkish Republic third prototype shirt is inspired by the Turkish national jersey, with the red color featuring gold and white details.

The phrase "100th Anniversary of the Republic of Turkey" and the Turkish flag were also included inside the collar, with a thin gold contour around the crest and the words "Republic 100 Years Old."

There is no info on what led to the rejection of the original design and why the club chose a different design instead.

The Nike Gala 2023-2024 100-year Turkish Republic third prototype jersey is, of course, not available to buy.
