Fot the 2010 World Cup, Nike have designed new Australia Football Kit to represent the heritage and unique football culture of the nation. The innovative uniform is designed to keep the players drier, cooler and more comfortable to allow them to maintain an optimum body temperature and perform at their best on the field. With improved Nike Dri-Fit fabric, which is 13 percent lighter than before, players can stay drier by drawing sweat to the outside of the garment where it evaporates.There are also ventilation zones on each side of the jersey – up to 200 tiny laser cut holes – so air can pass across a player’s whole torso to keep him cooler.
The same design is retained for Socceroos away shirt is mostly Navy Blue. This blue shirt was used by the Australia national team as the away kit for two years, between 2010 and 2012. The top quarter of the shirt and sleeves are dark blue. There is a yellow band running across the top of the chest and across the bottom of the sleeves. The team badge is on he left of the chest and the makers Nike trademark Swoosh logo on the right in yellow.
