Commemorating 70 years since the atomic bomb landed on the Japanese city of Nagasaki, Hummel have produced two "Pray for Peace" kits for J2 League side V-Varen Nagasaki to mark the anniversary.

A distinct blue and orange, the home shirt is a design incorporating both local and universal influence. An origami crane is printed alongside a faithful rendering of sculptor Seibo Kitamura’s iconic 1955 Peace Statue, located in Nagasaki Peace Park. A goalkeeper shirt, in yellow and pink, has also been released.

Some description

To mark the occasion, the club held a "Pray for Peace" ceremony on August 8th, a day before the landmark anniversary, in a tie with Consadole Sapporo. The football club and the city mark the date each year, but this 70-year commemoration was especially poignant. The spirit of the game, much more than a football match, was transformed into an act of remembrance and a celebration of unity. Around 1,300 people, including players, coaches, and their families, huddled in formation prior to kickoff, spelling out the word “PEACE” to a watching 10,184 spectators. A fitting tribute.
