The launch of the new kits was accompanied by the announcement of Star’s involvement in the “Unmissable” match. The football game will feature one of the game’s most iconic defenders – Carles Puyol and the Star team, which would be made up of some of the brand’s most loyal consumers, as well as past and present football players like the great Austin Jay Jay Okocha. The exciting blue and yellow design, inspired by some of the most brilliant and bold kits the world over, is a simple, yet elegant design.
