OK, so if you follow us on social media, you might have seen our recent visit to Kitlocker, you may have also seen our teaser posts on Instagram and Facebook regarding this year’s kit launch!
This season we’re starting afresh, with the release of our brand-new training wear range and not one, not two, BUT 3 iconic match-day playing kits! (yes 3!)
Before we dive into the kit reveal, we just want to say a massive thank you to Kitlocker, who are the exclusive kit provider for RIASA, you bring our vision to life with your amazing custom bespoke designs and overwhelming choice of patterns, colourways and textures.
We would also like to thank our very own Kamsi Madueke for modelling during the kit launch photoshoot. Good luck in your upcoming senior year, Kams!
Now it’s time for that drum roll… We promise it’s all been worth waiting for!
We can’t get enough of this year’s training wear range. It’s bold, bright and looks the part. For the upcoming season, RIASA student-athletes will be rocking Nike’s high performance Academy Pro range on and off the pitch.
The bright crimson/university red colour pops, and the bespoke elite design stands out from the crowd and truly represents our academy. Every aspect of each piece of training wear range is spectacular, all the way down to the bespoke duffel bag.
Our training wear range comes complete with short sleeve tee, mid-layer drill top, jacket, Dri-FIT shorts, hard case duffel bag, repel rain jacket and Dri-FIT pants – all customised with player initials of course!
This year’s home kit is a masterpiece. Staying true to our history and the direction we’re heading towards, the design is simple but effective.
Nike have nailed the fundamentals with this stunning design. Looking closely at the royal blue jersey, you’ll notice the fine white detailing on the sleeves, and the famous Nike swoosh on the front.
Just like previous RIASA kits, you’ll find bespoke US & UK flags on each sleeve, bold lettering on the back and for the upcoming 2022/23 each shirt will have the Finnish flag below the neckline – highlighting the connection between RIASA and professional football club PS Kemi Kings.
Just look at that crimson/university red pop! RIASA’s new away kit is strikingly bold. The design and look is the same concept as the new home kit, but a different colour entirely.
The distorted stripe graphic sleeves just make this kit even more perfect! We can imagine this shining bright on a cold winter’s night under the lights.
Just like the home Jersey, Nike have mastered originality with this basic but fantastic football top, the no cuff design and Dri-FIT technology offer superior comfort.
We saved the best till last! Introducing RIASA’s third strip for the upcoming season, our bespoke custom design hyper turq kit!
Bright. Bold. Striking. Iconic. There probably isn’t enough words to describe our love for this year’s third kit. In particular, we are obsessed with its clean look, but personalised feel.
On the front, there’s a huge ink jetted RIASA logo, alongside that famous Nike swoosh. You’ll find the US & UK flags on the sleeves and also our crest on the front too.
The back is clean and simple, but stands out with black lettering and the Finnish flag at the top of the neckline – perfection.
The colour is beautiful. The technology behind the top is innovative. We really can’t wait to see the lads run out in this new kit for the first time in a few weeks from now.
That’s a wrap! Stay tuned for more, including a BTS video of the kit launch day! Coming out soon!
