The new Lions kit will feature the FAS logo instead of the national flag.
For the first time since the mid-90s, the Singapore national football team kits will sport the Football of Association (FAS) logo instead of the national flag.
On Thursday (Nov 12), the FAS unveiled its brand new jersey for the upcoming two years. Sponsored by Nike, the home jersey will be in its traditional red while the away top will be in royal blue.
The jersey will be available on a newly launched FAS e-commerce store, which will sell all FAS and national team merchandise, from Nov 12 at 10am. It costs $115.
Conceptualised to reconcile tradition with the future, the design of the home jersey incorporates the use of colour blocking as a modern interpretation of the national flag while the deep royal blue away kit reflects Singapore’s vision as a forward-looking nation.
The away kit is also a close depiction of the FAS corporate colours, synchronising the association’s identity with the national teams.
The new kits also pay homage to the nation’s history by incorporating a contemporary take on the scales and curves of the iconic Merlion on the jersey front.
The national flag has also been given a modern interpretation through the symbolic crest on the red neck tape as well as the waveline graphic across the chest of the jerseys.
“In world football now, most countries are using the (football association) crest. I think it’s something unique and also a good throwback to how it was before,” said National Team winger Gabriel Quak in a press release.
He added: “I’ve been with the national team since 2013 and have seen different designs over the past seven years. I like how the design is fresh and we keep to our iconic red colour each time we launch a new kit.”
The jersey is likely to debut at the rescheduled AFF Suzuki Cup in April next year, where the Lions will be looking to clinch their fifth championship.
The first 100 fans who purchase the jerseys will also receive a complimentary FAS-excluisive face mask and a pair of open tickets to a national team home match or international friendly in 2021.
The FAS will be donating 10 per cent of the jersey sales to the OneStrong Fund, a collective trust which seeks to support less privileged families and children amidst the COVID-19 situation.
