Al Ain FC unveils new Nike home & away kit

Jan '14
For the 2014 season, Al Ain FC introduces a new kit that fuses the club’s traditional colours with modern style. Arabian Gulf League (AGL) champions, Al Ain FC, will first sport the new kit at the opening of the club’s new Hazza bin Zayed Stadium.

Established in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in 1968, Al Ain FC has excelled, leading the AGL in national league titles. The club recently signed a partnership with Nike as their official kit supplier.

Al Ain new home’s jersey is white with purple cuffs and features a modern V-neckline cut. Proudly positioned on the chest, the club's logo provides the ultimate touch of pride.

Colored stripes on the shorts and socks correspond with the jersey’s cuffs to create a complete look. The away kit comes in Al Ain’s iconic purple shade with white cuffs. The inner back neck comes in gold to complement the club’s logo and Nike’s swoosh on the front of the jersey.

Al Ain’s new kit is made from Nike’s ground-breaking recycled polyester, in line with the company’s quest to create environmentally friendly high performance kits. While the kit combines modern sport and youthful style to give the club a fresh new look, Nike’s innovations continues to give the team the most technologically advanced kit to aid athlete comfort and performance.

RECYCLED POLYESTER

The home kit continues to be made from Nike’s revolutionary recycled polyester, which reflects Nike’s commitment to producing athletic wear with a lower environmental impact.  The shirt and shorts of each kit are made from up to thirteen recycled plastic water bottles.

This process in which plastic bottles are melted down in to a yarn that is then spun in to recycled polyester reduces energy consumption by up to 30% compared to manufacturing polyester.

Since 2010, Nike has diverted over 1.1 billion plastic bottles from landfills through our use of recycled polyester.

FABRIC AND NIKE DRI-FIT

The kit is made of fabric weighing just 145 grams, which is 23% lighter than previous Nike kits. It also boasts a 20% stronger knit structure and a significantly improved stretch.

The fabric is integrated with Nike Dri-Fit technology, which draws away sweat from the body to keep them cool, dry and focused on their game.

There are also updated and improved ventilation zones consisting of tiny laser-cut holes on both sides of the shirt and on the waistband of the shorts, as well as a mesh across the entire back of the shirt to allow more air inside the kit for additional comfort and cooling.

FIT AND CONSTRUCTION

This season the home kit also has a more athletic and dynamic fit after Nike embarked on an innovative program of 3D body scanning some of the world’s leading footballers so as to produce a design more tailored to the contours of their bodies.
