On Monday, FC Goa launched the Uzzo jersey, the club’s official home jersey for the 2020-21 season of Indian Super League (ISL). The new official home kit of the defending ISL League Winners Shield takes inspiration from ‘Uzzo’ the Konkani word for ‘fire’.
Uzzo is not just a term in Konkani, but the war cry of all football lovers in Goa. The fearsome spirit of the fans has been the bedrock of success for the Gaurs and the catalyst that pushes the club in their aspiration to overcome even bigger challenges in the days to come. It’s a salutation from the stands, the call of Goa.
The current situation has seen sports take place globally without the presence of fans in the stands – the heart and soul of the sporting world. This season’s jersey is FC Goa’s tribute to its fans – a celebration of their spirit and support.
The new home kit sees a fire pattern, inspired by fire (Uzzo) being woven into the famous bright orange of the FC Goa shirt. The pattern gives the shirt an even greater meaning as the team looks to lay a charge on the Indian Super League crown.
