The Indian national football team have got new home and away kits with Sportswear brand, SIX5SIX launching a new design, named Panthera Tigris which is understood to be a cross between sportswear and streetwear.

The new kits which have been curated to be comfortable both on and off the pitch, will be on display when the Blue Tigers resume their international duties later this year. The home kit is primarily blue with a design that incorporates the stripes of a tiger in the top half and an orange horizontal band just above the midriff. The collar lining is also orange. The All India Football Federation (AIFF) crest is placed on the left while the SIX5SIX branding is on the right.

The away kit is white and also has the stripes and the orange band. The new jerseys are made with 100% soft polyester fabric and feature unSWT technology for maximum breathability and comfort.

India will next be expected to be in action in March 2021 when they host Qatar in a 2022 World Cup qualifier, following which they will face Bangladesh away from home and then host Afghanistan in June to close out their qualifying campaign.

Sunil Chhetri's men have secured three points from five games so far, and still have a chance of finishing third in Group E - which would ensure that they would get a direct berth in the third round for the 2023 Asian Cup Qualifiers.
