New Erreà Malta national team kits unveiled

Malta will have a new look on the pitch thanks to UEFA’s Kit Assistance Scheme in collaboration with kit suppliers Erreà.

The Italian company created bespoke designs for ten smaller national associations – Andorra, Belarus, Cyprus, Faroe Islands, Kazakhstan, Kosovo, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Malta and San Marino, allowing them to play in top-calibre clothing that represents their own national identities and cultures. The new kits were in fact designed taking into account the specific needs of the national teams and tailor-made to reflect the history and tradition of each team and their homeland.

The shared aim of Erreà, UEFA and the national teams involved was to go beyond mere aesthetics and performance, creating kits that carry cultural, as well as sporting, significance. The new kits not only represent the identity and character of each team, but also embody a tangible link to the culture, history and natural landscape of their respective nations, testifying to the importance and impact of football around the world.

The Malta home shirt, with a red background, is characterised by the repetition, in matching colours, of the Maltese cross, and by the presence of white side bands. The ribbed collar and sleeves are red, with the same characteristic cross on the back of the collar. The Italian brand logo is located on the right side of the chest, while the Association’s logo is on the left, over the heart.

The away kit features the same tone-on-tone design but with a reversed colour combination, including the details of the collar, sleeves and side bands.

Both the home and away shirts bear the phrase ‘Lil din l-art Helwa’, the title of the national anthem, in the inner collar.

Like all Erreà products, the kits are Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certified, that guarantees compliance with stringent limits for harmful substances at all stages of production, and with a slim fit, made in the innovative Ti-Energy 3.0 fabric, an antiviral and antibacterial fabric thanks to the integration of zinc oxide nanoparticles in the yarn fibres, and the Minusnine J+ treatment, which makes the fabric impermeable to liquids.
