adidas Football today unveiled the Germany 2018 FIFA World Cup home kit. Set for a debut when the Germans meet England in an international friendly on November 1oth, the new shirt will be available at World Soccer Shop, UK Soccer Shop, Lovell Soccer, Pro:Direct Soccer, Subside Sports and Kitbag.
The new home kit for FIFA World Cup defending champions Germany is a modern interpretation of one of the country’s most famous jerseys worldwide, the iconic 1990 shirt.
The Germany 2018 adidas jersey builds on this classic design with an improved and reworked performance silhouette featuring dropped shoulder cut lines. It’s constructed of a two-fabric component collar with the words “Die Mannschaft”, translating to “The Team”, on the reverse of the neck.
A gold FIFA World Cup winners badge features on the front of the jersey and a special sign-off on the inside of the collar pays homage to the link between the new kit and the kit of the 90s.
The Germany 2018 World Cup adidas home kit was modeled by Mannschaft regulars Toni Kroos (Real Madrid), Thomas Müller, Mats Hummels (Bayern Munich) and Mesut Özil (Arsenal) for its release.
“Of course I’m familiar with the 1990 kit and I see the parallels – I see a lot of hope for this World Cup as well,” says centre back Mats Hummels on his new Germany uniform. The borrowings from the legendary design, which has since been adopted in streetwear and skateboarding culture, the shirt is also perfect for recreational football in the park or the street. “Football has become more modern and hip and this T-shirt is in line with that,” comment Müller.
