Islamabad United, the most successful team of the HBL PSL with two championship wins, are pleased to the announce the launch of its official home and away kits for PSLV. The kit was released on Islamabad United’s digital platforms today.
With this launch, Islamabad United has introduced the concept of Home-Away kits to the PSL as well as Pakistan sports in general. The team which prides itself in pioneering new and innovative concepts to PSL, also becomes the first team in PSL history to have both a home and away kits. With the Pindi Cricket Stadium designated as Islamabad United’s permanent home, the matches there will be played in the team’s home kit. For matches outside of Rawalpindi/Islamabad the Away Kit will be employed.
Regarding the new concept, Ali Naqvi, the owner of the franchise said, “We have always prioritized quality over appearance, and the changes we have made for our kits over the past years have been reflective of that. While the concept of home and away kit is becoming more of a norm in cricket, we are proud to be the first to introduce that concept in Pakistan. Islamabad United has always taken pride in being innovative in everything on and off the field, and this is just a continuation of that. Our fans in Rawalpindi and Islamabad will see us in our familiar red. The Pindi Cricket Stadium is our home ground, where we have waited for five years to play, and we want to truly make it our home.”
One of the priorities that Islamabad United has defined for itself is the introduction of international standards and practices to Pakistan cricket – not only with what happens on the field, but everything that happens around it too. Introduction of this kits concept is another action to further cement that proud tradition.
The details for the new kit are:
