FC Goa have launched the club’s official home jersey for the 2020/21 season. The new kit has been termed as the 'Uzzo jersey', as the new official home kit of the Indian Super League (ISL) side takes inspiration from ‘Uzzo’, the Konkani word for ‘fire’.
The jersey pays tribute to the fans of the club, who are the heart and soul of the sporting world, as they won't be able to attend the matches due to the ongoing pandemic. The jersey also celebrates the spirit and support of the fans who will be watching from home.
"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 journey to overcome even bigger challenges in the days to come. It’s a salutation from the stands, the call of Goa," FC Goa said in a statement.
