Appearance

The FC Albacore is a green soccer jersey with sections of yellow. The sleeves and collar are lined with white, on the left arm is an orange armband with a black Takoroka logo, and up to each shoulder is a row of three green chevrons.

There is a smaller Takoroka logo on the right side of the chest in white, and a small red and white crest on the left of an in-universe coffeehouse company. Below the logo and crest is some heavily-stylized white Inkling text. On the back of the Jersey is some more white Inkling text which somewhat resembles the word "Nintendo", with a large number under the text that resembles the number 10.

Trivia

  • In Splatoon 3, the FC Albacore lists Enperry as its brand rather than Takoroka. Despite this, the shirt still has the same design from previous games, which includes the Takoroka logo on the arm band and chest.
