Australia 2018 Shirts



The Aussies play their home games in a kit of yellow shirts. The national team played at the World Cup finals in West Germany in 1974, which to date has been the Socceroos only appearance in this event. They have however beaten some of the top sides in friendly matches, notably England in recent years.

Australia played their first international match away to New Zealand in Dunedin, New Zealand on the 17th June 1922 losing 3 - 1. Australia play their home games at various venues in Australia.

The nation have had several iconic players to player for their side including Harry Kewell, Mark Viduka, Brett Emerton, Mark Schwarzer, Lucas Neill and Tim Cahill.

Australia currently play in the AFC confederation where they play their home matches in gold shirts with green trim with their away kit being dark blue with gold trim and are manufactured by Nike. Their kits have had a long history of changing from green to gold and the occasional white and their nickname is the 'Socceroos' and they play in the Trans-Tasman rivalry between New Zealand. Their current roster of players includes Mark Schwarzer, Tim Cahill, Archie Thompson, Robbie Kruse, Brett Holman and Rhys Williams.

World Cup Kits

Australia's 2014 home kit features a traditional green 'Johnny' collar along with a classic gold base. The shirt was unveiled by Mark Bresciano in Walsh Bay, Sydney in early February 2014. The kit is complemented with green shorts and gold socks. Featured on the back of the neck is a quote saying 'We Socceroos can do the impossible' which was first said by Peter Wilson the captain of the 1974 team.

Australia's World Cup shirts have mostly remained the same throughout history. Australia's first ever kit a sky blue and white display. This is the only outlier to Australia's trademark green and gold. Gold socks has been the norm in recent World Cup tournaments where Australia previously wore white socks.

For the nation's first World Cup appearance Australia wore a traditional gold display with green stripes down the sleeves. The 2010 shirt saw a large inclusion of green using a unique panel at the top of the chest along with white detailing.

In terms of away shirts Australia have mostly used a dark blue colouration with gold trim. The away shorts and socks are commonly coloured the same as the dark blue shirt.

Australia's most memorable kit must be the shirt designed in 1991 which featured unique green and gold patterns on the front and back. The shirt was topped off with a black collar.

Australia have had several kit suppliers in their history as a football nation. English brand Umbro supplied their kits first in the mid 70's, and adidas took over from the 80's to 2002 where Nike took over and they still remain today as the kit manufacturer for Australia.

Australia's best ever position at a World Cup was reaching the Round of 16 with Australian legends Tim Cahill, Lucas Neill, Mark Schwarzer and many more in the side. In general the Socceroos have been fairly conservative in their kit selection ahead of World Cup competitions.
