Nike and England national team unveiled jointly the brand new home and away shirts for 2016 UEFA Euro. The new Vapor shirts are manufactured to help the national team players run freely and be concentrated on matches at football pitches.
As the birthplace of modern football and the most developed football market, England has been the world center of professional football. England national team is the leading team in Europe. As of 2016, the team has appeared 964 international matches and won 548 matches. The most gratifying thing is that it won the champion of 1966 FIFA World Cup. In 2017, the team has qualified for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
Its team badge consists of three lions and ten roses, the England national flower. Lions, as the king of animals, symbolize power and courage. The ten roses separately represent Manchester, London, Liverpool, Southampton, Leeds, Birmingham, Bristol, Portsmouth, Newcastle and Sheffield.
England national team plays its home games at New Wembley Stadium with a capacity of 90,000 spectators making it the largest professional football stadium in Europe. The stadium also hosts the FA Cup Final and Semi Finals, the Football League Cup Final, the FA Community Shield, the Football League Play Off Finals and the Rugby Football League Challenge Cup Final. Each of the two giant screens in the stadium is the size of 600 domestic television sets, so spectators are able to watch games clearly.
The newly released home shirt is predominately white and has a v-neck collar with a dark blue stripe. It features sky blue sleeves and shoulders in contrast to the main color. Nike Swoosh is printed for easy brand recognition. There are several design details to show respect for the nation. The national team badge is embroidered on the chest boasting the team’s pride. “England” is printed on the back of the collar. “THREE” and “LIONS” are respectively sewn on the insides of the sleeves.
A breathable stripe is placed on both sides of the shirt. They extend down the shirt and connect with the stripes on both sides of the shorts in order to provide good air permeability for players in motion.
The white shorts and red socks complete the home kit. The red socks catch the eye entirely and the color is inspired by the color of the shirt worn by national team players when they defeated Brazil national team in 1984, which is a symbol of victory. Loyal and crazy fans must buy without hesitation. You can get them at Cheap Football Shirts Replica.
The Vapor shirt is the most innovative product of Nike. It is made from recycled polyester, so the shirt is lighter and more comfortable than previous shirts, meanwhile, this manufacturing skill reduces the impact on environment and shows Nike’s strong awareness of environmental protection. In addition, the material is so breathable that players at football pitches can keep cool and move freely.
“We are aimed at showing three colors(white, red and blue) on the new shirt because these colors represent the England football.” said Martin Lotti, Nike’s creative director.
