Errea and KSÍ have had a successful partnership for a long time, as Errea has been one of KSÍ’s main sponsors for many years, or since 2002.
“This is a moment that many have been waiting for, as a costume, or to believe that the majority of the nation will probably wear this summer. We are very happy with the outcome, considering all our needs for the design of the shirt, and it’s cool, “says Gudni Bergsson, chairman of KSÍ.
The basic idea behind the design is a reference to the characteristics of the country, the fire, the ice, the lava and the lake. The design was in the hands of Filippo Affani, who has a lot of experience when it comes to the appearance and fabric of sportswear.
“We are very proud today when we hand over the first shirts. It’s not simple to design and produce a team of national teams, taking into account the wishes and needs of those who are in it. The desire to reflect the power that lives with the people and the discourse, despite the smallness, “says Þorvaldur Ólafsson, Managing Director of Errea in Iceland.
