The Power of Football to Unite
Football has the power to unite people, break down barriers, and create a sense of belonging. At Kurdistanfa.com, we believe that football can help build a strong Kurdish community and foster a deep sense of pride in our culture and identity.
Exclusion of Kurds from the Football Community
For generations, the Kurdish people have been denied the opportunity to create a national football team that represents all Kurds and the chance to participate fully in the sport. For too long, we Kurds have been left out of the picture, denied the chance to come together, cheer for our own national team, wear our own national shirt, and be one despite our own personal interests.
Injustice of FIFA’s Policies
The current membership policies of FIFA appear to be inconsistent, as demonstrated by the contrasting treatment of smaller territories like Gibraltar and larger regions like Kurdistan. Gibraltar, a British Overseas Territory with a population of just 33,000 and an area of 6.7 square kilometers, enjoys the privilege of having its own national football team and official FIFA membership.
On the other hand, Kurdistan, a region with a population exceeding 50 million, is not granted the same recognition as an official FIFA member. This discrepancy calls for a reevaluation of FIFA’s membership criteria to ensure fairness and inclusivity for all aspiring football communities.
Working Towards Change
While FIFA has launched an inspiring campaign called ‘Football Unites the World‘ to promote the power of football to unite people and bring about positive change, it’s unfortunate that over 50 million Kurds have been excluded from this opportunity. Despite the immense popularity and passion for football among Kurds worldwide, FIFA’s policies have left them without the opportunity to represent their own nation on the international football stage.
At Kurdistanfa.com, we are working to change this. We believe that every Kurdish person should have the opportunity to come together and cheer for their own national team, regardless of their geopolitical situation. By promoting Kurdish identity and building a strong football culture, we hope to create a platform for the Kurdish people to come together and celebrate our shared heritage.

We invite you to become a part of our community. Together, we can raise awareness of our Kurdish culture, identity and history to the world and build a vibrant community.
Kurdistan Football Shirt Design
For the design of the first Kurdistan Football shirt, we chose a lean start-up approach by carrying out a series of experiments. We designed, measured and learned. Our goal was to create a design that would be accepted by all Kurds and future proof for future generations to use.
We did this by first doing comprehensive research into Kurdistan, Kurds, Kurdish Symbols and the Kurdish Flag. After this we did comprehensive research on football badges. After the research we concluded that there are four types of national football badges:
- Simple modern
- Simple symbolic
- Symbolic detailed
Also, we concluded that there are three main shapes: round, shield and out of the box.
Kurdistan Football Shirt Logo
We chose a “symbolic detailed” badge because we wanted to show Kurdish key-elements in the badge. These were the Kurdish mountains, Kurdish sun, Kurdish Culture and regions in Kurdistan: Rojava, Bashur, Rojhilat and Bakur.
We also chose a combination of the round and shield shape.
Kurdistan Flag on the Kurdistan Football Shirt
The only thing that was still missing was the Kurdistan flag. The football badge of Japan inspired us to place a Kurdistan flag above the round Kurdistan logo.
In the illustration below I explain the key-elements in the Kurdistan Football Shirt logo:
At Kurdistanfa.com, we are committed to promoting Kurdish identity and culture through football. We believe that Nike shares our passion for inspiring and innovating, and that’s why we chose their shirts for our Kurdistan Football collection.
Nike’s mission is to bring inspiration and innovation to every athlete in the world, and we want to bring that same inspiration and innovation to Kurds in sports. We believe that by partnering with Nike, we can create high-quality football shirts that reflect the strength and unity of the Kurdish people.
Furthermore, Nike’s iconic slogan, “JUST DO IT,” perfectly embodies our determination to take the first step towards creating an official Kurdistan Football Shirt, a Kurdistan National Football Team, and a Kurdistan Football Association. While these goals may seem far off, we are committed to making them a reality, and we believe that Nike’s innovative and fearless spirit aligns with our vision.
Nike Dri-FIT quality
We wanted to offer excellent quality for Kurdish athletes, and that’s why we chose to use Nike’s Dri-FIT technology in our Kurdistan Football Shirts.
Dri-FIT is an innovative polyester fabric designed to help keep you dry and comfortable during intense physical activity. Its unique high-performance microfiber construction supports the body’s natural cooling system by wicking away sweat and dispersing it evenly throughout the surface of the garment so that it evaporates quickly.
The Dri-FIT technology used in our Kurdistan Football Shirts is not only effective, but also permanent, so you can train, play and sweat in comfort for longer periods of time. With the Kurdistan Football Shirt Nike, you can push yourself to the limit and achieve your goals with confidence.
So, whether you’re training for a big match or simply looking for a high-quality football shirt to show your support for Kurdistan, the Nike Kurdistan Football Shirt with Dri-FIT technology is the perfect choice.
