Egypt's new Puma kit was officially unveiled by the Egyptian Football Association (EFA) on Monday, a few days ahead of game against Niger in the last game of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

The EFA published a photo of the home shirt in red and the away shirt in white on their Facebook page, adding that the Pharaohs will be wearing the new jersey until the end of 2022.

However, the EFA did not specify when the team will start wearing the new kit.

Egypt is set to host the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations for the fifth time in the country's history in June of this year.

Egypt had hosted the tournament in 1959, 1974, 1986 and 2006.

The 2019 AFCON is scheduled to take place from 21 June to 13 July.

Egypt has already qualified for the tournament.

The Pharaohs will also be facing Nigeria in a friendly away later this month.

The previous Egyptian kit was made by Adidas.

The Adidas shirt, which the team wore at last year's World Cup in Russia, was criticised by some supporters, who said its design was not up to the standards of the seven-time African champions.

The Pharaohs previously wore the Puma kit during a hugely-successful four-year stint that saw them win the Nations Cup three straight times in 2006, 2008 and 2010 -- an unprecedented feat on the continent.

In January, the EFA signed a new four-year kit supply deal with Puma to supply football kits to all national teams, both senior and junior.

Egypt was chosen by the CAF to host the tournament after Cameroon was stripped of the hosting rights in November due to delays in its preparations for the expanded 24-team tournament.
