Ghana & Ivory Coast Get Ready For 2018 With PUMA
Ghana's new threads are designed to reflect the passion, excitement, and freedom seen in traditional Ghanaian dance, the shirt incorporates a stylish graphic interpretation of the Ghanaian people’s rhythm, beat, and pulse. The shirt reverts back to the bold Pan-African yellow and red of the national flag further translating that famous energy and spirit the country brings to their dance. The engineered graphic is centered around the famous Black Star as if the rhythm is emanating from the hearts of the players and is the perfect inspiration for a team to come together and play to the beat of their nation.
Whilst the Ivory Coast kit has been designed to reflect the pride and passion of the fans and nation, the shirt incorporates a modern and striking interpretation of the nation’s symbol, the Elephant, into its design. This powerful symbol signifies strength, loyalty, and assertiveness and is the perfect motivation for each player to come together as one foreboding force.
In addition, the shirt is engineered using PUMA’s highly developed evoKNIT Thermoregulation technology an enhanced moisture management and adaptive cooling system that helps create the perfect on-pitch body temperature. Combined with its seamless construction, the jersey offers the ultimate in fit and mobility for optimum performance.
Getting into the details you will notice engineered cooling fins in key zones on the shirt that act as channels regulating your bodies temperature, whilst dryCELL technology provides moisture management across the fabric with high-performance yarns that wick sweat away from the body. All this is packaged into the seamless evoKNIT construction of the shirt that provides a lightweight ‘second skin’ feel so the fabric moves with the player's body and not against it, allowing for better freedom of movement on the pitch.
