    2018 FIFA World Cup Kits

    after each match day FIFA releases a stats of the day report like this one: https://resources.fifa.com/image/upload/stats-of-the-day-29-june-2018.pdf?cloudid=ycz5ioc7uckceuptbfwy just google "fifa stats of the day" and you can see the next matchday's kit matchups

    At least from our games, it seems like FIFA is sticking to strictly Primary Home vs Away kits this year unless there's a major clash? Not too sure since Korean media only announced our matchups and not the other matches. Since FIFA designated us as Away, Home, Home for our group matches

    Korea Republic announced its kit matchups a few days ago that were assigned by FIFA Korea Republic (White) vs Sweden (Yellow) Korea Republic (Red) vs Mexico (White) Korea Republic (Red) vs Germany (Teal)

    First time since 1996-98 that we are wearing black shorts and first time with non-blue federation crest. love the away kit, the pattern resembles tiger stripes, and sort of resembles the Korean peninsula using our taeguk pattern.

    apparently our shorts are blue, but yeah it's a little bland and weird with no blue on the shirt since the crest usually was blue for us

    Question about Asian leagues

    Yup those are player names. #47 Kang Min Ho (강민호) being one of the newest players for Samsung Lions.

    Question about Asian leagues

    Oh that's interesting to hear since all the game jerseys all have Hangul on them, even on the Samsung Lions website shop they sell ones with Hangul.

    Question about Asian leagues

    Korea's K League uses Hangul text for names during League play but during National Football team matches and the AFC Champions League they use English. Also the KBO uses Korean too, so when Eric Thames played for the NC Dinos, the name on his back was 테임즈. Actually now that I think about it, ALL Korean leagues use Hangul for names other than international matches.

    Might be because it's their last Umbro kits. They're moving to Marathon starting August 1, 2018 (which is before the the 2018/19 football calendar)

    Yeah that's true, but almost all Nike supplied kits are released March because in January/February there are no official FIFA A-Match days. But if countries do have friendlies in those months sometimes they will release it a month or two early for them like that USA 2006 one you mentioned

    Adidas releases home kits in November, away kits in March. Nike releases home & away kits in March. that's been the cycle at least for the past 10-15 years

    MLB changes 2018?

    Any kind of sporting competition we go by 대한민국 ever since 2002 World Cup or so. If I recall correctly even 1998 WC we used 한국 more.

    MLB changes 2018?

    I think it's the same reasoning as Korea. The english name is more well known around the world. If they were to go the Nihon/Nippon route, they would probably want to do it in their language (日本). With Korea it would be weird to see DaeHanMinGook rather than 대한민국 If its english it's Korea. If it's Korean, its 대한민국 for us. I'm sure it's similar with Japan.

    We do also have origami, but we don't call it origami. we call it "종이접기" which translates to "paper folding" but yes, it isn't an iconic Korean thing as origami is to Japan.
