On Thursday, global sportswear giant Nike revealed the new jerseys of several Southeast Asian national teams, including those of Malaysia's.

It is believed that they have done so in anticipation of the 2018 AFF Championship, which will kick off in December.

The new Malaysia black and yellow home kit has broken away from the convention of its past iterations, in that it featured very little black. The jersey is almost exclusively yellow, with muted tiger stripes. Only the Nike emblem and the roundneck collar are black.

However, the new away kit has revived the tradition of paying homage to the Malaysian flag, the 'Jalur Gemilang' (Stripes of Glory). While the previous edition only featured the colours of white and blue, the latest iteration added yellow and red back to the fray.

According to the Nike website, the jerseys will be available for purchase beginning the end of September this year
