The new design continues to embody the Malaysian pride but with a sleeker twist. The facelift features an all-black base with striking yellow detailing - a first for the national jersey - and the tigers and quintessential stripes modernised. The away kit, on the other hand, has a white base colour with blue detailing at the sides instead.
