  • Top 10 Best Football Kits Ever


    With the world swept away with World Cup fever, we asked our vintage product coordinator, and HUGE football fan, Damien Watt to give us his run down of the best football kits every to grace the pitch...Get more news about Wholesale Soccer jersey,you can vist futbolucl.com!

    2 years ago, if someone told you that Trump would be the American President, UK voted themselves out of the EU and the English National Football Team had reached the Semi-Finals of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, I'm sure you would have politely told that person to f*** off. YET HERE WE ARE AND FOOTBALL IS COMING HOME (maybe).

    It could be the heat, or because someone was standing on a table at 5 hours after the game at the pub trying to make everyone sing ‘Football's Coming Home' for the 15th time (you know who you are), but it's easy to see that this summer's football fever is more contagious than ever. With England only 2 wins away from immortality (hopefully), I thought it would be only fair to share my favourite football kits from the beautiful game.This ‘fake stone washed denim' kit raised some serious eyebrows with host nation USA at the 94 World Cup. With USA's young "soccer" history, the kit did no favours to their credibility. Surprisingly, USA advanced through the group stages beating Columbia en route, only to crash out to eventual cup winners, Brazil, with a 1-0 loss. Gaining some respect en route despite looking like muppets. All kinds of ugly but certainly iconic.

    One of the more abstract patterns ever created, the ‘90 Northern Ireland away kit is a Craic'ing (so sorry) design. It reintroduced blue to the ‘Norn Iron' away shirts, a reminder of Ireland's early heritage, and was used for the qualifiers of Euro 92. Unfortunately Northern Ireland failed to qualify, at least they looked tidy.

    This kit is probably the second best thing to happen to Arsenal during the 95-96 season (signing Bergkamp takes the biscuit). Only the 90s could produce a professional kit design that features a lightning bolt. This paired with the JVC sponsoring did create some divide with fans, some claiming that the shirt looked like a badly tuned TV. Ironically this claim also reflects Arsenal's last seasons performance. #Wegnerout

    Yes, it is the Netherlands 1974 kit, but this is something a tad more unique. You see, Johan Cruyff was no regular player, he is often regarded by many as Europe's first true football superstar. So when it came to the ‘74 World Cup there was a slight issue, the Netherlands kit was designed by Adidas but Cruyff was sponsored with Puma. Cruyff being extremely loyal to Puma, refused to play with the 3 Adidas stripes on his shirt. The Dutch FA bowed to Cryuff's demand, and allowed him to play in a bespoke kit with only two stripes, the rest is history!

    If you aren't aware of St Pauli or their fans, they are pretty top notch. Known for their commitment to social activism, they have done some pretty amazing things over the years. From continually fighting against racism, fascism and homophobia in the stands to supporting the Lampedusa refugees. The club even open the stadium doors to 200 anti-G20 protesters in 2017. During the 2015-16 they showed their support in the LGBT community by including the rainbow stripe flag to the sleeves, inside logo and even the captains armband. Class act.
