Football Shirt Culture

To celebrate the start of the 2019 season, long-standing partners adidas and Major League Soccer presented their 2019 team jerseys out of the field and on to the runway.

The two houses came together to show that uniforms are not only meant for players and sports fans but can be worn from the stadium to the street and accessed by a wider style community to symbolize city identity and pride.

For home matches, the FFF women will dress in a traditional blue shirt with rose gold details, including crest, FFF marking at the back of the neck and the words “Nos Différences Nous Unissent” within.

The Tricolore is represented subtly on the sleeve, while the kit’s white shorts and red socks articulate the famous bleu, blanc and rouge from head to toe.

The France Women’s away kit, white shirt and socks paired with blue shorts carries a unique hexadot pattern referencing both the country’s informal nickname (l'hexagone) and the dotted styles of French fashion.

It shares the same interior detail (“Nos Différences Nous Unissent”), rose gold detailing and Art Deco font as the home kit.

The Seleçåo Feminina's away kit modernizes a favorite of Brasil's women — inspired by the constellation of stars in homage to the Brazilian indigenous warriors who, by legend, turned to stars after death.

In a dark blue tone with a geometric star graphic representative of the night sky fading from top to bottom, the kit is designed with a modern collar.

At home, the CBF women will wear an exclusive version of the nation's sacred yellow kit. The body features the same Samba Gold, pulled from the 1970s, as the 2018 men's kit, and introduces lucky green accents on the cuffs.

This shirt is balanced by blue shorts and white socks — an undeniably Brasilian aesthetic.

Nike and the NFF have launched a new 2019 women’s national team kit inspired by Norwegian heritage. Combining the team’s trademark colors of red and blue, the new home jersey features a pattern borrowed from traditional Norwegian ski sweaters. The result is a unique gradient aesthetic that decorates the front of the shirt.

Norway will wear the new kit this summer in France while seeking a second world title; the team heads into the tournament following an impressive qualification campaign in which they topped their group.

The new Australia home kit, part of the first National Team collection designed exclusively for the Matildas, channels an exuberant aesthetic born in the early ’90s.

Melbourne’s famous Hosier Lane, a globally recognized street art hot spot, the famed Golden Wattle and its sickle-shaped stalks and macro and micro shots of the Australian landscape all coalesce in the graphic — one that serves to encapsulate contemporary Australia.

South Africa's Banyana Banyana might be new to the peak of global competition — this summer marks their maiden trip to football's flagship tournament — but the team is no stranger to the hard work and preparation required to make it.

This summer, the team will wear a bold green away kit with a cascading horizontal pattern.
