Thailand’s national football team unveiled their new home, away and third kits ahead of the imminent 2019 AFC Asian Cup, teaming up with Thai sports manufacturing company Warrix.
Officially coined the ‘War Elephants’, the Thai national team will wear blue, red and white strips for the upcoming continental tournament which Australia will hope to be prominently featuring in.
All three kits are solid efforts from Thai brand Warrix, with the navy-blue home strip probably the pick of the bunch.

Featuring subtle horizontal dashes of white, Thailand’s home jersey could be loosely described as an inverse of the highly-popular away kit worn by 2018 World Cup winners France.
The Warrix brand logo and Thailand team crest appear on the right and left chest respectively for all three kits, with the home edition also featuring red trims on the collar and sleeve cuffs.
For the away strip, Warrix went with a variation of the classic hoops design, with two different shades of maroon serving as the two primary colours; across the chest, the hoops are quite thin but increase in size further down the shirt.
Finally, Thailand’s third and final jersey is almost a carbon-copy of the aforementioned 2018 ‘France away’, with the same subtle red and blue dashes used in both nation’s shirts.
Thailand’s primary point of difference is its thicker, navy-blue collar, complimenting the shorts of the same colour which are to be worn with the kit.
Thailand are to face India, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates in the group stage of next year’s Asian Cup, which begins on January 5.
