Turkey’s new away kit represents the countrys' football heritage and national symbols in a contemporary and stylish new design.

The away shirt is an updated version of the design Turkey wore in their first-ever game and for the next 40 years. It is white with a red crew neck collar and a red chest stripe, with the crest in the center.

In line with Nike’s commitment to superior athletic performance and lower environmental impact, the fabric of the new kit’s shorts is made with 100 percent recycled polyester, while the fabric of the shirts is made with at least 96 percent recycled polyester.  Each kit is made using an average of 13 recycled plastic bottles.

The fabric is also up to 23 percent lighter than the version four years ago. Embedded with Nike Dri-FIT technology, the kits help to regulate players temperatures on the pitch by removing sweat from the body to keep them dry and cool faster than ever before. 

Laser-cut ventilation on the shirt promotes localised cooling where athletes need it most to remain focused on the game. 

A new double knit structure and yarns also makes this kit 20 percent stronger, with no compromise to fit and feel with natural cotton added for comfort.

Inside the back of the neck is a graphic of the All Seeing Eye, also known as the Evil Eye or Nazar Boncugu. It's a charm in Turkish culture that promises to bring bearers luck and keep a watchful eye over them, warding off evil and keeping them safe. 

The away shorts are white. The home socks, now with improved cushioning for greater comfort, movement and protection, are also white with a red stripe at the top.

The base layer apparel includes the Nike Pro Combat Hyperstrong shorts and Nike Pro Combat Hypercool 2.0 top. Both combine with the kit as the modern uniform of dress for football. The Nike Pro Combat Hyperstrong compression men's slider shorts provide added support featuring padded waist and thigh protection in the most critical areas so players can train and tackle with confidence, while mesh fabric is placed in the high heat zones for breathability.  The Nike Pro Combat Hypercool 2.0 top delivers ventilation and sweat-wicking fabric to help keep athletes cool and comfortable during practice and match play.
