These are the new Tunisia shirts 20/21, Tunisia’s new home and alternate jerseys for the upcoming international season. Made by Kappa, the new kits were officially unveiled on July 3, 2020 by the Carthage Eagles.
Tunisia’s new 2020/21 home shirt is white, while the away jersey will be primarily red in colour.
