Iraqi Football Association and Umbro new Kits for 2021- 22 Season

Iraq Football Association and Umbro MENA reveal Home and Away kits for the 2021-22 season.

The kits’ designs incorporate various elements inspired by Iraqi history and heritage. The Home jersey uses green as the base colour and embosses a print of Babylon Palm and an outline of the Ishtar Great Wall.

All the kit designs incorporate the Iraq Football Association logo on the chest and the use of Kufi font at the back which gives a touch of Iraq’s heritage.
