Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) showed off the the new home and away jerseys, supplied by  English sportswear and football equipment supplier Umbro, on Thursday night.

The senior men's national team will be outfitted in the new design this weekend, starting on Friday in a friendly fixture against Ecuador in New York.

On Sunday, the home kit will be on display as the Reggae Boyz begin their CONCACAF Nations League campaign against the Cayman Islands at the National Stadium in Kingston.

The new home jersey is in Jamaica’s traditional vibrant yellow colour, with a striking black, green and yellow taping design on the sleeves inspired by the Umbro double diamond logo and the country’s iconic flag.

On the body of the home shirt is a subtle embossed graphic inspired by the palm trees that line the Jamaican coastline. Black shorts with the colourful taping trim and yellow socks complete the home look.

The away kit comprises a black jersey with green collar and sleeve trims, it features a vivid, colourful graphic on the main body that draws from the colours of the Jamaican nation, the energy of the island’s culture and Umbro’s timeless diamond logo. The Reggae Boyz nickname features on the back neck in yellow, while a tonal black version of the home kit’s taping design runs down the sleeves of the shirt and also features on the accompanying yellow shorts.

Black socks complete the away strip.

Both home and away kits are crafted from lightweight performance materials designed for movement and breathability. Both designs will be worn throughout Jamaica’s involvement in the CONCACAF Nations League tournament, with the ultimate aim of qualification for the 2022 World Cup.
