MEET THE FOOTBALL FERNS

NEW ZEALAND WOMEN'S NATIONAL TEAM

The New Zealand women's national team is headed to France for their fourth consecutive tournament appearance. With a team of experienced veterans and young talent, they are ready to prove themselves on the world stage. Fittingly, on their chest is the silver fern, a symbol of the country that, according to Māori legend, represents strength, resistance and power.

HOME SHIRT

On each sleeve is a graphic of the fern, the team's namesake and a national symbol of New Zealand. The design itself is inspired by the unique underside of the tree's fronds, which reflect under moonlight, creating a natural nightlight that's celebrated for guiding travellers.

AWAY SHIRT
