September 1, 2020 – The Croatian Football Federation has released the new Croatia uniforms to be worn at the upcoming Nations League matches and the Euros next summer.
“Croatian football is a term for pride, passion, skill and those irresistible checkers, all of which can be seen in the new, dynamic Nike collection that the Croatia national team will wear in the upcoming cycle, which includes the European Championship next summer,” announced HNS on Tuesday.
In the new collection, the traditional home jersey features the large and striking world-famous Croatian checkers. The traditional red and white jersey again has checkers on the sleeve of the jersey. The logos of HNS and technical partner Nike adorn the front of the jersey, with the number located in the center, while a blue line runs down along the torso side.
The words “Croatia” and “Vatreni” are printed inside the jersey as a symbol of pride, and white shorts and red socks complete look. The same words can be found on the new pre-match warm-up shirt with a modern design with two shades of blue and an unusual square pattern.
“Croatia is always a great inspiration to Nike because of the strength of its identity,” said Scott Munson, vice president of Nike’s football department. “The new home jersey is faithful to Croatian football heritage, while the reserve jersey is another great interpretation of Croatian design for players and fans.”
The 2018 World Cup finalists get a fresh look on the reserve jersey, which has abstract black and gray checkers extending throughout the jersey and also appear on the socks. The Federation’s coat of arms, the red line, and other red details give this jersey a special look.
“I like the new jerseys, I think they will suit us very well,” said captain Luka Modric. “The first jersey is a classic design with a modern touch – and those striking checkers I remember from the time I watched the national team as a boy. The reserve jersey is new, different, and exciting, something we haven’t had before.”
The new jerseys are available on nike.com from September 1, and the entire collection is available from September 4 in all Nike stores and its partners.
