Scotland releases a special edition shirt for 2023 with adidas, celebrating the national team's 150th anniversary. Taking inspiration from the first uniform worn by Scotland in their first-ever international match in 1873 against England, the new shirt looks to commemorate this historic landmark.adidas
The simple, clean-cut design reflects the nation's football heritage. Dominated by the traditional dark blue, it features a round white collar and woven crest, with the Lion Rampant highlighted in gold against a tonal crest, to match the look of the first crest worn on early Scotland shirts.adidas
Striped sleeve cuffs give a nod to the importance of Queen's Park FC, who formed the basis of Scotland's earliest national team all those years ago. As part of the celebrations, the Scottish Men's National Team will wear the new jersey during a special Anniversary Heritage friendly that will be played against England at Hampden Park on September 12.adidas
Regarding the shirts' technology, the kit is made from moisture-wicking AEROREADY to add a dash of modern-day comfort and is made with 100 per cent recycled materials – as part of adidas' commitment to helping end plastic waste.adidas
