Iran to unveil World Cup kit on Thursday

May 9, 2018 - 14:58

TEHRAN – Iran national football team kit for the 2018 FIFA World Cup will be unveiled on Thursday in Tehran's Espinas Palace Hotel.

It was originally scheduled for the warm-up match against Uzbekistan, slated for May 19 but it seems Football Federation of the Islamic Republic of Iran (FFIRI) has changed its decision.

FFIRI president Mehdi Taj had already said Team Melli’s 2018 World Cup jerseys have not been revealed yet to avoid counterfeits.

With 36 days to the start of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, the Iranian federation and kit supplier Adidas have not unveiled Team Melli’s kit and the federation has received criticism from fans about the delay when other nations are being supplied.

Endangered Asiatic Cheetah was imprinted on Team Melli's jersey during the 2014 FIFA World Cup and the 2015 AFC Asian Cup, but it seems the image will not be stamped on Iran’s kit in the 2018 World Cup.

Carlos Queiroz’s team have been drawn in Group B of the 2018 World Cup along with Spain, Morocco and Portugal. The Iran national football team will open the campaign with a match against Morocco at Saint Petersburg on June 15.
