New Balance Reveals F.C. Tokyo Home and Away Jerseys
F.C. Tokyo set to debut first New Balance strips
15th January 2021, New Balance has unveiled F.C.Tokyo’s 2021 bespoke home & away kit — the first collaboration between the global athletic leader and the J1-League side.
The release is part of the brand’s ‘You Are Tokyo’ campaign, which aims to celebrate Japanese football fans in the capital, uniting them through F.C.Tokyo.
Revealed today, the unique Home jersey is a blend of tradition and modernity, comprising the Club’s signature blue and red stripes, alongside a progressive graphic which encapsulates a modern camo pattern.
Inspired by the Ajinomoto Stadium, the away shirt pays tribute to F.C.Tokyo’s homeland, using linear pinstripe representations in red and blue to depict the breath-taking backdrops and stunning visual cues.
The both strips also incorporate an internal badge bearing the words “You’ll Never Walk Alone”, the words were loved by F.C.Tokyo supporters.
Equipped with innovative NB Dry technology, the shirt is engineered to help keep players fresh and dry. A jacquard ventilation system is added to promote optimum comfort. Matching shorts in an athletic fit helps to increase stability and complete the look. The socks include a special stress-reducing knitting feature that uses soft-touch functional yarns to ensure full performance.
The 1st goalkeeper kit has been designed in line with the outfield player strips and arrives in yellow. And 2nd goalkeeper kit arrives in black.
Kenny McCallum, General Manager at New Balance Football, said:
“We wanted to fully respect the bold stripes of F.C.Tokyo, with a classic design that pays tribute to the Club’s identity whilst embracing the very latest New Balance design technology. We’re really looking forward to seeing it in action at Ajinomoto Stadium”.
Shuto Abe, Player of F.C.Tokyo, said:
“I am very much looking forward to playing in the 2021 season wearing the new New Balance jersey. I hope that all of our fans and supporters will wear the same kit as we do, and that the entire F.C.Tokyo family will go together as one to win the league championship.”.
