On Guard For Thee: the new #CanadaRED jersey
Posted on 15 May 2018 in Sponsors & Partnerships
Canada Soccer and Umbro have proudly unveiled the latest #CanadRED home jersey for Canada Soccer's National Teams. Presented with the powerful words drawn from Canada’s national anthem - On Guard For Thee – the new jersey represents a dynamic and diverse nation from coast-to-coast-to-coast. Those four words will serve as a reminder of the nation that Canada represents every time the new jersey is worn in international competition.
The jersey is also inspired by one of Canada’s most symbolic emblems, the Canadian maple leaf. That leaf is featured prominently on the front of the jersey along with the clean classic lines that have come to define an Umbro Canada Soccer kit.
The new home kit is available now from the official Umbro Canada Soccer store via CanadaSoccer.com.
The back neck of the jersey features the Canadian flag in pride of place while the now iconic Canadian soundwave - representing the Canadian national anthem, inspired by Canadian supporters - remains prominent on the left hip.
The new jersey will debut on field by Canada Soccer’s Women’s National Team as they face reigning Olympic champions Germany at Tim Hortons Field in Hamilton on Sunday 10 June 2018.
The jersey is made from spun polyester which is a fabric offering the tactile handle of a cotton fibre with all the benefits of a high performance polyester yarn for the best temperature management. The jersey also features ergonomic cut lines across the upper arms and shoulders for ease of movement along with tonal mesh venting under the arms for added comfort.
Canada Soccer's custom and distinctive "Les Rouges" font for lettering and numbering will continue to be featured. Each character symbolizes the strength of ice that is precisely chiseled to bring Canada's northern beauty to light. At the same time, the type face embodies the determination and resilience that Canada Soccer's national teams demonstrate each time they step on the pitch to represent their country.
In addition to being available online now, the jersey is also on sale at Canada's home matches, starting with the Canada v Germany match at Tim Hortons Field on 10 June.
