Adidas introduces new jerseys for annual Army All-American Bowl.
Adidas Football today unveiled the new Primeknit A1 Football Uniform, which will make its on-field debut at the 2018 Army All-American Bowl on Saturday, January 6th, at 1pm ET. The game features 90 of the best high school players in country in an annual East vs. West matchup every January in San Antonio’s Alamodome.
According to Adidas, the new body-mapping jersey design features an all-new ribbed knit pattern on the chest and shoulder pads to produce a refined fit, while knit engineered mesh channels feature Climacool technology to provide enhanced breathability and cooling zones. The development of a new innovative chevron pattern on the chest of the jersey aligns with a player’s shoulder pads and generates increased durability for high-contact zones for protection and the inside of the jersey features silicon grip patterns on the shoulders to lock the pads in place.
Additionally, Primeknit finishes inspired by the Adidas UltraBoost and NMD are incorporated into the collar, sleeve cuff and hem for added comfort and a new infinity neckline delivers for a clean, iconic design that eliminates distractions and allows for a full range of motion. The revolutionary Primeknit A1 football pants have been re-engineered with just two seams and bonded pockets for added comfort and a clean compression look and feel, along ribbed Primeknit on the knees for added durability.
The color palette features the traditional black and gold U.S. Army colors, black representing knowledge and gold signifying achievement and honor, in order to create a signature look for the 2018 U.S. Army All-American Bowl. The West team will wear gold and the East team will be in black.
