A concept kit from the partnership between Al Nassr and Adidas has finally come to light. It was only last year, seven months after Cristiano Ronaldo‘s initiation into the Riyadh-based club, that a 1-year contract with Nike was announced. However, with no further extension with Nike, Adidas seems to have taken over as the team’s official kit sponsor starting from the 2024-25 season.

Recently, Footy Headlines showcased an initial glimpse of a concept design crafted by kit designer IvanMD.

The body adheres to a majestic yellow foundation, while elements such as the Al Nassr crest, sponsorship details, and prominent shoulder stripes are emblazoned in blue. Here’s what the jersey looks like:

According to previous reports, Puma will become Portugal’s official jersey sponsor- commencing January 2025. The UEFA Euro 2024 marks the final tournament where Portugal’s national team will sport Nike apparel.
