Football: Lions get new jersey

AsiaOne | Monday, Nov 3, 2014

SINGAPORE - The national football team will don a new jersey as they defend their ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) Suzuki Cup title from Nov 23.

Unveiled on Monday, the jersey is made of a new dual-knit fabric consisting of both cotton and recycled polyester, to manage moisture and offer a softer feel.

Nike said it took 3D body scans of leading footballers to create the kit, which will be available for $99 from Nov 6 in limited quantities at its Shaw House, Paragon and Ngee Ann City Outlets.

The company has been manufacturing jerseys for the Lions since 2007.

The team will play against Thailand in their opening fixture of the AFF Suzuki Cup.
