On Monday, the jerseys to be worn by the Greek national team at the 2019 FIBA World Cup in China were presented, with the kits having a distinct retro feel to them.
GSA Sport released this following statement:

For the 2019 appearance and third time in a row, GSA Sport designs and produces in Greece the new teamwear inspired by the same blue colour of the Hellenic Basketball team, winner of the legendary European championship of ’87. Honouring the legacy of Hellenic athleticism and being in a mood for relating present and past, the word “HELLAS” [ΕΛΛΑΣ] is written in Greek for the world’s spectators.
