The Australian Women's Football team will debut a new home and away kit for the Rio 2016 Olympics when they take on Canada, Germany and Zimbabwe next month.

The Olympics specific jerseys have been developed by Adidas, the official sponsor the Australian Olympic Committee, and follows the same green and gold colouring as the rest of the uniform.  Meanwhile the goalkeeping jersey comes in three colours, blue, red and green with black blocking.

To align with the Olympic tournament’s uniform regulations, Football Federation Australia's logo is replaced by the Australian coat of arms.
