New Balance Launch Panama 2018 World Cup Home Shirt

The slogan for the new Panama 2018 World Cup home shirt is "the one you will keep forever" and that couldn't be more fitting for a nation that will be competing in their first ever World Cup Finals. This shirt is history.

New Balance are the brand with the honour of partnering up with Panama for this historic summer, and the brand have supplied the underdog nation with a smart all red home kit to make their bow in Russia this summer. 


New Balance put on a launch event at the Hotel Riu and invited Panama fans to a landmark event in the history of Panamanian football. The 2018 home shirt's graphic print is inspired by the wings of the national bird, the Harpy Eagle.

The red shirt features a white and blue trim to mirror the national flag, and inside the back of the neck hosts the opening line of the national anthem which translates to "We finally reached the victory". Another fitting display.


Panama will play their first ever World Cup Finals game when they face a much fancied Belgium side on June 18 in Sochi. How's that for an introduction? Panama will likely be in their new red kit for the Belgium clash, before switching into their unreleased away kit to draw 0-0 with England six days later.
