Adidas today announced the official World Cup of Hockey 2016 jerseys and fan gear is now available. They sent us images of each jersey and they’re un-BUH-lievable.
The World Cup of Hockey 2016 will be played at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto from September 17th to October 1st and will feature eight international teams: Canada, Czech Republic, Europe, Finland, North America, Russia, Sweden and USA. Each team’s jersey design is inspired by essential elements of national pride from the participating teams.
Here’s more from the official press release.
Made with adidas’ cutting-edge adizero technology, the new authentic jerseys features the blending of three lightweight, resilient fabrics, which have been tested and tuned over the past four years. Engineered for durability, while providing greater airflow, the innovative adizero fabric has been developed to keep athletes cool and comfortable. Additionally, the new adizero cresting reduces weight, adds flexibility and improves overall movement, allowing players to perform at their highest levels.
Development and construction of the lightweight authentic jersey has been refined to minimize non- essential elements including seams, piping and others that add weight to the jersey. Additionally, the collar has been designed to be more robust and durable and the lay-flat construction allows a better range of motion while simultaneously creating a clean look.
