Indonesian football team to don Nike's kit at Suzuki Cup

Nov '12
The time is now for the Indonesia's national team, as they step on to the pitch in new National Team Kits from Nike and embark on a journey to win Southeast Asia’s most prestigious biennial football championship: the Asean Football Federation (AFF) Suzuki Cup 2012, held from November 24-December 22.

The new kits are Nike’s most environmentally friendly and technologically advanced – made from 100 percent recycled polyester and Considered materials and designed to bring out the best in athletic performance.

It's a big moment for Indonesian football. The Garuda national team is one of the strongest teams in Southeast Asia, and a new set of young players are expected to inject a fresh spirit and to gain victory for Indonesia.

In line with Nike’s commitment to combining athletic performance with lower environmental impact, the kit's shorts are made with 100 percent recycled polyester, while the shirt's fabric is made with a minimum 96 percent recycled polyester. Each kit is made using an average of 13 recycled plastic bottles. The kits are constructed using Nike Dri-FIT technology to wick moisture, and are made out of 23 percent lighter fabric with 20 percent stronger knit structure than Nike’s previous kits.  The shirts also feature laser-cut ventilation holes to promote localized cooling, to help regulate player temperatures during the match.

Each federation kit is developed around key insights inspired by the national identity and the distinctive football culture of every nation.

The Garuda National Team jersey features the Garuda emblem on the left chest, providing strong motivation' to each player wearing it. Printed on the inside of the jersey is the phrase ‘Bhinneka Tunggal Ika’, or ‘unity in diversity’ which serves as an inspiration for the team. In addition, inspiration was drawn from the Garuda National Team uniform from the 1950s, with distinctive green elements incorporated in the arms and below the jersey

Players will be gunning for gold this season as they play in Nike’s football boots, featuring All Conditions Control (ACC) technology. ACC allows the boot’s surface to maintain the same level of friction, touch and control on the ball in wet and dry conditions, delivering consistent friction between the boot and ball.

The player will get an assured touch similar to the feel of the ball in dry conditions, allowing for optimal playing performance in the unpredictable Southeast Asian weather. Nike boots combine the latest design innovation and performance, with boots for each style of play. ACC is available across all Nike boots including Mercurial Vapor VIII, Tiempo Legend IV, CTR360 Maestri III and Total 90 Laser IV.

On pitch, the Nike Maxim Hi-Vis ball makes its Southeast Asian debut at the AFF Suzuki Cup 2012. The 2012-2013 Maxim Hi-Vis ball features a color combination blended together in a unique way to create maximum visual performance and contrast on the pitch.

The bold geometric graphic and color combination on the Maxim Hi-Vis creates a strong 'flicker' effect to improve sight of the ball under floodlights or in low-light conditions. In addition to the Hi-Vis innovations, the Maxim features geometric precision technology to distribute pressure evenly across the panels for a consistent, accurate and powerful strike.
