Australia was originally part of the Oceania football association, and dominated competition within that FIFA Confederation. From 1980 - 2004 they won four OFC Cup’s and finished as runner-up in the other two. Due to lack of competition within the confederation Australia asked to join the more competitive Asian Football Confederation (AFC), which they did in 2006.
Since moving to the AFC Australia has entered a ‘Golden Generation’, the increased competition fostering better football and greater success. They have now qualified for three successive World Cup tournaments, and in 2015 they won the AFC Asian Cup for the first time. This success makes them the only national team to claim the title of Champion in two different football confederations.
Australia Shirt History
To begin with the Australian team wore a sky blue football shirt with white shorts, and maroon detailing on the socks. In 1924 a green and gold coloured kit was introduced. It was not until the 1960’s that the now classic yellow shirt with green football shorts combination was introduced. To this day the Australia home kit features a yellow home jersey, green shorts and either yellow or green football socks.
The Australia away kits are more variable in colour. Often the away kit reverses the home kit colours and is primarily dark green with yellow trim. On other occasions the squad wears a blue away kit in reference to the historical kit, although dark navy blue is more often chosen than the sky blue of the original Australia jersey.
Since 2004 American sportswear manufacturer Nike has produced the Australia football shirts and kit. Nike does a fantastic job of designing kits that are packed with symbols of heritage and culture, making the Australia jerseys very popular with soccer fans. In fact, the Australian association agreed to extend their deal with Nike in 2012, and the team’s football shirts will now sport the infamous Nike Swoosh until at least 2022.
