DFB technical supplier adidas presented the Germany EURO 2016 away kit in Paris earlier today. The new national team alternate shirt of adidas athletes Bastian Schweinsteiger, Mesut Özil and Thomas Müller is inspired by the look of street football jerseys. It will be available at World Soccer Shop, Subside Sports, Kitbag, UK Soccer Shop and Lovell Soccer along with Die Mannschaft’s (The Team’s) 2016 home kit.
The colors of the away shirt encompasses the different elements of German football: grey representing the concrete playgrounds and arenas where street footballers, the green reflecting the grass pitches on a Sunday morning and the beige reminiscent of the cinder pitches were local legends have been born.
adidas hopes that the reversible aspect of the jersey will make it a favorite for fans and amateur footballs. It can be turned inside out to show become a neon yellow jersey with on which the street football motto of “Kicken – Bolzen – Pöhlen” is printed.
The Germany EURO 2016 away jersey uses a modern crewneck design with adidas stripes running down both of its sides. The golden FIFA World Champions badge is stitched onto its mid chest area while the German nation flag in incorporated into its outer back collar.
To have a reversible shirt is a cool idea,” said World Cup winner Thomas Müller. “It’s never been so easy to form a team on the pitch, like these days.”
The latest German alternate kit will make it’s debut this coming on Tuesday, November 17 when the 2014 World Cup winners take on the Netherlands in their final international of 2015.
