World Cup Kits

The Republic of Korea have mostly used a red shirt throughout their history as a football team. Their short colour has changed several times but a red shirt has been a constant throughout where blue and white are the standard trim colours. The 2014 World Cup home kit captures their renowned tenacity and loyalty on the pitch and combines the American brand’s performance technology and powerful national symbols. The new home shirt features the nation’s iconic red colour along with blue trim on the shoulders and white trim on the numbers and branding.

The Republic of Korea's first appearance at a World Cup competition came in 1954 when a traditionally designed red shirt with white collar was combined with white shorts and red socks.

In 1994 Korea Republic were inventive with their kit design as the home shirt featured a bright chequered design added to the left shoulder of the shirt. In 1998 the Korea home shirt reverted back to a simple design. In every tournament since the famous red shirt has been partnered with white shorts and red socks in a design that has become the modern style for South Korea.

When Korea Republic hosted the 2002 World Cup with Japan their home shirt featured their iconic red display along with blue shorts and red socks. This kit is arguably the nation's most iconic where the team managed to reach the semi-finals of the tournament.
