Nike unveiled the new Spartak kits for next season which reflect the traditional values and heritage of the club. The home kit is classic red with a traditional white stripe on the chest which is perforated with red lines. A key element of away kit design is a graphic image of a gladiator’s helmet, reflecting the team’s passion and will to fight for the victory. This graphic is used for the first time and is a symbol for the most titled club in Russia.

Underneath the club’s emblem, and sitting against the heat, is an inscription Spartak Forever. It symbolizes player’s and fan’s dedication to the club. Under the shirt’s collar you can find an image of a gladiator in a diamond – these are very important symbols for Spartak.

While producing the new kit, Nike designers have used the latest innovative technologies which help players to perform at their best. The kits are made of 23% lighter fabric with 20% stronger knit structure than the Nike’s previous kits and feature Nike Dri-FIT technology to wick moisture away from athletes to help keep them cool and dry on-pitch. The glued T-type conjunctions in the shoulder area strengthen the stitches, which take the biggest pressure during sharp moves at the field.

The new kit is made from Nike's recycled polyester, making them Nike's most environmentally friendly kit ever produced.  Each kit (jersey and shorts) is made using up to 13 recycled plastic water bottles. This manufacturing process reduces energy consumption by up to 30% compared to manufacturing virgin polyester.  Since 2010, Nike has used an estimated 115 million recycled plastic bottles to create its high performance kits. 

“Nike has partnered with Spartak since 2005. This is a club with passionate fans and great traditions.  We wanted to create a kit using the latest innovative technologies, and also to bring special attention to the symbols and heritage of the club in the design, "said Olga Koroleva, Nike Russia football brand manager.

“The new kit completely reflects our history and heritage,” said Spartak captain Sergey Parshivlyuk. “The home kit is a classical design respecting the traditions and colours of our club. The away kit reflects our fighting spirit at the beginning of the season and our character. We are faithful to our ideals, our history and our fans and we are ready to fight for the victory.”
