adidas Football has officially revealed the home kit that 2018 FIFA World Cup hosts Russia will wear in the lead up to and at next summer’s soccer world championship.
The Russia 2018 World Cup home kit takes its design inspiration from the shirt worn by the Soviet Union team that won gold at the 1988 Seoul Summer Olympic.
The jersey uses the traditional red of Russian primary football kits as its base color. It is detailed with a classic white v-neck collar and white adidas shoulder stripes. 1980s-styled white flashes run across the upper sleeves.
The colors of the Russian national flag and the two headed eagle of the country’s coast of arms appear on the inside neckline along with the wording “Вместе К Победе” (“Victory-Bound as One”). White shorts with red adidas branding and red, blue and white socks complete the 2018 Russia football kit.
Russia will debut their 2018 FIFA World Cup home kit in match action when they meet talent rich Argentina and Spain in during the November international football break.
