MI Global today unveiled the official playing kits for MI Emirates for the upcoming inaugural season of UAE’s International League T20 (ILT20 2023).
Crafted by designer duo Shantnu & Nikhil in the iconic MI blue & gold colour scheme, the jerseys dedicated to the local fans, pay homage to the culture and history of the two regions.
A gold mine of opportunities lying in the highs and lows of natural vastness, the MI Emirates jersey celebrates the root through a global eye that the world uses to visualize this emerging new part of the world. Re-imagining Emirates through modern art, its iconic structures and pristine beaches through sketches on a modern artist, sand dunes take a triangular landscape, presenting a myriad of scapes in various shades of blue and gold.
Designers Shantnu & Nikhil said, “Our long association with Mumbai Indians for over a decade, has always brought a fresh perspective to the iconic ‘Blue and Gold’ jersey, rooted with a large story and meaning conveyed through each creation. Getting inspired by culture, sportsmanship, local elements along with infusion of art, we have always centred our approach around the world as one big family. This year we dived deep into indigenous culture, marrying it with millennial approach and creating jerseys that reflect the pride that the team upholds. We are elated to bring forth these iconic jerseys to the people that celebrate this sport religiously.”
