France Reveal Special-Edition Nike Centenary Kit 2019
Back in July 2018, France were crowned champions of the world. Triumph against Croatia in the final made them the most elite national side. Now, the year 2019 marks the 100th anniversary of the French Football Federation, which was founded in 1919. What a better way to mark it with Nike designing such a luxurious looking kit.
Tonight, will be the launch game for the French players to wear the kit against Iceland at the Stade de France.
What a classy shirt this is. A more distinguished gold crest with two stars above it (indicating total of World Cups won – 1998 and 2018) adds an extra dimension of class. Then we see the subtle blue Nike swoosh on the right side of the shirt, carefully playing ‘hide and seek’ behind the blue base colour of the jersey.
And we see that the polo collar has been re-introduced to the world after a few years out. Nothing says retro, old-school and centenary more than a classic collar. However, there’s a little twist to it with the embroidery of the French flag between the collar and button. Lovely little touch.
The full get-up will be finished with white shorts and red socks. What a way to mark their centenary, it’s smart to say the least.
The French Football Federation, plus Nike look to conquer Europe next year at Euro 2020.
