A force to be reckoned with! Nike and Zenit launch our new kit for the 2021/22 season

FC Zenit’s 21/22 home and away kits highlight the importance that St. Petersburg's waterways had in enabling Russia to become a maritime power. The designs are also a celebration of the team that moves with fluidity, grace and power on the pitch.

The light blue home jersey, with a classic V-neck collar, features bold graphic elements indicative of the waves of the Neva River.

The away jersey has a clean and modern look, it’s cream colour offset by light blue trim details.1160х740 2 (1).jpg

The new FC Zenit home and away kits that players will wear on the pitch as well as the replica jerseys for the fans are constructed with 100% recycled polyester fabric, which is made from recycled plastic bottles. This creates the kits that helps deliver peak performance with a lower impact on the environment.

No other sport captures global attention like the beautiful game and we see this as an opportunity to scale more sustainable solutions in order to help protect the future of sport. As part of Nike’s wider Move to Zero initiative – a journey towards zero carbon and zero waste – we are focused in scaling the usage of lower-carbon material alternatives. Recycled polyester[1] reduces carbon emissions by up to 30% compared to virgin polyester and that’s why since 2010 Nike has been using rPoly to produce football kits.

The eight-time Russian champions will debut their new kit this weekend in the Russian Super Cup game. Sergei Semak's team will face Lokomotiv Moscow in Kaliningrad on Saturday 17 July at 19:00 St. Petersburg time.

Both kits for the 2021/22 season will be available from 15 July 2021 on the Nike app, on nike.com, in club stores, as well as in our shop.fc-zenit.ru online store.

[1] Each year, Nike diverts an average of one billion plastic bottles from landfills and waterways by creating and designing with recycled polyester. Plastic bottles are collected, cleaned and melted down to produce a high-quality yarn for manufacturing and is part of Nike’s wider Move to Zero initiative with football apparel leading the way in sustainability.
