About The Kingdom of Kush
Home Jersey for The Kingdom of Kush National Team.
The Kingdom of Kush existed between 1069 BCE and 350 AD in what is modern-day Sudan. They competed regularly against Ancient Egypt and enjoyed a period of success during Egypt's 25th Dynasty.
At the same time as their on-pitch fortune, the Kingdom was flourishing. It was unified with Napata as its designated capital city, and through some political gamesmanship, a Kushite monarchy was ruling Ancient Egypt by the mid 8th Century (BCE). This threw over a century of Nile Derby matches into dispute, as claims of match-fixing in games between Ancient Egypt and the Kingdom of Kush became rife.
This design was inspired by a combination of the 1994 Nigeria World Cup kits and Kushite art that depicts Kushites wearing animal cloaks and earthtone-patterned fabrics.
