The World Cup in Qatar in 2022 is approaching. All of the national teams have the custom of entering competitions with brand-new uniforms.

All of the equipment-making companies’ brands, including Nike and Adidas, started selling the kits a month ago excluding Canada.

The Canadian national team will wear the same outfit for the World Cup as they did for the qualification round around the middle of last year.

Alphonso Davis of Jamaica and other players who are well-known globally will represent Canada at its first World Cup since 1986.

With players like Alphonso Davis of Bayern Munich, who is well-known globally, Canada will participate in its first World Cup since 1986. The country will be the only side in the tournament without a new uniform.

Some members of Canada’s national team aren’t happy about not receiving new World Cup uniforms: “I’m not a fan of it, to be honest,” Canada defender Sam Adekugbe said to The Athletic, “I just feel like every team should get a new kit for the World Cup because it’s a symbolic event. I don’t hate it, but I would have liked to have gotten a new kit, just because it’s something to cherish.”

The issue is that when Canada and Nike agreed to their present contract in December 2018, the squad was two spots higher than Curacao in the FIFA rankings. They were up against eight CONCACAF teams.

It’s estimated that Nike spends about 18 months designing and producing a new uniform. A kit would have needed to start the development process around March 2021 in order to be released this month together with the other Nike World Cup apparel.

Canada was only starting its journey to become the team that made it to the World Cup at the time. But it was a lengthy process—more than a year.

The Cayman Islands matchup was the first opponent on the journey, and the prospects of qualifying were slim.

Adekugbe stated, “I think that just proves that no one really believed in us. “I don’t believe Canada was convinced. However, the bunch that was present and (Canada coach John Herdman) were the only ones that truly believed.”

The team’s ascent through qualification turned into such a heartwarming tale throughout the world of international soccer since it was so unlikely and caught many forecasters off stride. It appears that Nike belongs to this category.

At that time, Canada was about to start an extraordinary, 12-month journey against minnows like the Cayman Islands in the first round of CONCACAF qualification. At that moment, Canada’s chances of making the World Cup were, once more, at best slim.

Prior to the competition in June, Canada’s women’s 2019 World Cup home uniform was unveiled in March of that year. It was the first uniform Nike created for Canada after replacing Umbro as the nation’s official supplier.
