The kits are made from innovative, environmentally friendly materials and feature unique design details tailored to each team. As in previous versions, the kits are built from fabric made from recycled polyester. And for the first time, the kits’ lining features ATOM fabric – a lightweight, double-layered material made from organic cotton and designed to boost comfort, durability, moisture management and elasticity.
Sanfrecce Hiroshima’s home kit features the team’s traditional violet color. Its unique color block design is inspired by the body armor worn by Motonari Mori, a warrior from the Aki Province west of Hiroshima during Japan’s Provincial Wars of the 16th century. Violet silicon tape is found on the side of the pants for a unique design detail. The socks feature the team’s symbol of three arrows in jacquard fabric on the calf.
The team’s vivid vermillion and violet away kit design is inspired by the 5-story pagoda structure of the Itsukushima Shinto shrine near the city of Hiroshima. The uniform is designed to help the team show respect for its traditions and culture when playing away from home.
Urawa Red Diamonds
The Urawa Red Diamonds’ new home uniform features the club’s iconic diamond on the front of the jersey in a bold gradation design. A fresh crew neck design is a departure from the collared design the team has worn the past few years, and red silicon tape on the side of the pants is a fresh detail. “URAWA” is stitched in jacquard onto the calf of the socks. The design represents the modern Urawa Red Diamonds while retaining the team’s traditional red, black and white colors.
Urawa’s modern, striking away uniform takes inspiration from the uniform the team wore when it claimed its first major tournament title in 2003. The kit’s vivid emerald color is meant to evoke a deadly poison that strikes fear into the hearts of Urawa’s opponents on the pitch.
The Kashima Antlers’ traditional color combination of deep red and navy blue continues in the new home kit design. The deep red color is inspired by a rose, the official flower of the Ibaraki prefecture. It also evokes the dominating presence of a champion. Navy represents the ocean that surrounds the Kashima region. The body and sleeves of the shirt feature a bold color block design, and varying widths on the borders of the jersey as well as red silicon tape along the side of the pants provide a unique look. "ANTLERS" is stitched in jacquard onto the calf of the socks.
The away uniform is white, a lucky color for the Antlers: The team wore white kits during many of its total 16 championship title victories.
Sanfrecce Hiroshima, Urawa Red Diamonds and Kashima Antlers will debut their new kits on pitch Feb. 23, Feb. 26 and March 2 respectively.
