At the beginning of the South Korean national teams history the squad proved themselves to be a formidable force in Asian football with consecutive wins in the 1956 and 1960 incarnations of the AFC Asian Cup. In fact, throughout their history if they qualified the South Koreans have rarely finished in less than third place, but to date they have only won twice.
Following a single 1954 World Cup qualification the South Korea football shirts would not appear in the world’s biggest football tournament again until 1986. However, since 1986 South Korea has secured qualification for every tournament. The team’s best finish was 4th in 2002 when South Korea co-hosted the FIFA World Cup alongside Japan.
South Korea Soccer Jerseys by Nike
The distinctive flag of South Korea provides the inspiration for the colours of the national team’s home and away jerseys and kits. For the vast majority of the team’s history they have worn a red home jersey, and the shorts have varied between red, white and blue. In 1994 a white home shirt was introduced, but the iconic red was quickly restored in 1995.
The away football shirts were generally blue until 2002 when a white away kit was introduced. Following their success at the 2002 World Cup South Korea has since stuck with white as it’s secondary kit colour.
