New minimalist design
U-22s national jersey, June 2012 edition
The Cambodian U-22 team met with the Philippines yesterday sporting a
new strip. In fact the playing kit is never the same for any two games
on the trot that I can recall. Perhaps the contract with the old kit
supplier, Jako with the big red winking tomato plastered across the
shirt has been thrown out with the dishwater (and the exit of the Korean
coach). The new strip, which incorporates the most minimal of design
elements and no sponsorship, is presumably the one which the U-22s will
wear in the upcoming Asian Cup. It's produced by the leading
Thailand-based FBT sportswear company, who are the market leaders next door but the chosen design doesn't exactly set the world alight, does it. It didn't even carry the players names on the back of the shirt, just to ease identification. Even the country badge, showing the towers of Angkor Wart, is a slightly different design. Anyhow, it's not the shirt but what is in it that really matters come the AFC U-22 Asian Cup in Laos in nine days time.
