European clubs are gradually introducing kits for the new season – they have collected local sets of teams from the top leagues. Tell us in the comments which design you liked the most!

Premier league


The Arsenal home kit is dedicated to the 20th anniversary of the legendary and last championship – “The Invincibles” -2003/2004. The round neckline, the white sleeves that reach the neck and the golden touches are all references to that famous year. The logo was gold, but given last season, it doesn’t look very appropriate (albeit beautiful). But the most interesting are the details: the letters W (winner) and D (tie) are engraved on the side seams, the same number that was in that season. 26W and 12D.


Bill Shankly would have appreciated it: Liverpool’s new home kit is similar to the one worn by the players in the 1973/1974 season. The design is concise: the traditional red color, white collar and cuffs, and up close you can tell that a barely perceptible pattern has been applied to the jersey.

The second kit is also retro-inspired, but from the 1995/1996 season. True, with some innovations: green is brighter, and the stripes are not vertical, but horizontal; the button-down collar was replaced with a regular black one.

“Manchester United”

The club received a kit in the traditional colours, but with an emphasis on a combination of black and red. An unusual pattern was added to the design, following the outline of the Red Rose of Lancashire and inspired by the bridge over the River Erwell. “The pattern reflects the cultural identity of the city and represents the fans’ undying loyalty and love for the club,” the statement read. The collar and cuffs (especially noticeable on the long-sleeved uniform) are made in a retro style and resemble the uniform of the 1990s.

“Manchester City”

City repeated almost exactly the form they did for the Reebok club in the 2003/2004 season. The team then played for the first time in their new stadium, which was called the City of Manchester before being renamed the Etihad. The reference is not accidental: this year the arena turns 20, so even inside the jersey on the neck is the logo of the stadium and the postal code of the district M11 3FF.


The new home kit is inspired by the design of 1983-1986: standard black and white stripes, V-neck with white stripes – there are many similarities with the classics.


From afar, the home kit looks like a regular white jersey, but up close, intricate patterns of lines, circles and squares are visible – these are references to the busking of London’s N17 area (where the club is based) and history. of its national broadcast.

A series


An elegant solution to the design of the first kit: the traditional red and black stripes that symbolize the AC Milan brand have been reinterpreted. The stripes are collected in the form of a tonal graphic, forming the letter “M” in the very center of the jersey as a symbol of the city and the club’s place in it.


Juve have a unique kit with a zebra print (an interesting twist on traditional stripes!) and bright yellow details – a very cool solution that will definitely make the club stand out from the rest.

the league

The renamed Spanish league: in early June, the LFP management announced that in the new season and with a new main sponsor (EA Sports became it), there will be a new logo, as well as a change in the spelling of the name . As a result of the change, the famous multicolored wheel, which has been depicted on the organization’s emblem for 30 years, will be replaced by a double letter L. The LL symbol reflects what happens on and off the field: how players celebrate a goal by sliding their knees on the grass and how the fans raise their hands. Furthermore, LaLiga will be renamed LALIGA.

The rebranding will also affect the design of the form, i.e. the fonts used to apply the player numbers and names. The unified style has long been used in the Premier League and Serie A, and now La Liga has come to this.

The Madrid club has a simple and concise kit design, diluted with details in blue (Legend Ink) and red-gold. Real Madrid actively resists experimentation, so in most cases only the color of the pipes changes.

In the Champions League and the Cup, the font on the form will be different, it is very similar to the one that applied the numbers and names in 2002.


Nike has made the Barcelona kit more colorful, with the same colors the club wore between 2017 and 2021, and also very similar to the ones it wore in the 1970s. The legendary stripes are back: a classic design which was introduced in 1912 and has long become a hallmark of the club’s kit. The stripes on the edges have a diamond pattern, and there is also a diamond shape on the emblem itself – this is a tribute to the Barca women’s team, which first played its match in 1970 and whose logo for a long time consisted of a rhombus. .


The club celebrates in Madrid the 120th anniversary of the founding of the Athletic Club Madrid Branch – the team was founded by Basque students, so the colors of the kit were blue and white. The new away kit is a tribute to that historic first kit. Yes, there is no collar, buttons and the sleeves are not white and blue, but pure blue, but otherwise there are many similarities, even the emblem was made with the monogram “CA”.

The kit was launched under the slogan Puro Atleti – “Clean Athletic”. And for the first time in four years, the home kit design consists of the classic red and white stripes with no change other than a subtle gradient: from a light red on top to a more saturated bottom.

The club made a small revolutionary decision: the home kit design is now predominantly white, not red! Curiously, there is a clause in the club’s regulations that says that the home kit can only be in these colours. The design is inspired by the 1965 kit, when Bayern had just entered the Bundesliga.


The club approached the development of the kit design creatively: fans were involved in the process, being offered a choice of nine options. As a result, they chose the option with the silhouette of the home stadium of the Westfalenstadion at number 1.

Nike has developed a design for one of its major clients based on the kit Ronaldinho wore in the early 2000s. The new home kit captures the essence of PSG, with red and white stripes symbolizing the club fading into a blue dynamic, a move the designers envisioned to recall “the lights merging with the Paris skyline.” Style!


The club has also gone retro: the new kit design is inspired by the 2002-2004 kit, but has a slightly different meaning than memories of past successes (Lyon won seven straight titles in those years). .

The idea of ​​the new uniform embodies the culture of the city as the gastronomic capital of France: the tricolor collar, which echoes the symbolic colors of the club, is a tribute to chefs who pass on their culture and know-how to the younger generation. The point is that the transfer of knowledge is one of the pillars of the club’s youth system. The golden details reflect the club’s constant search for excellence, which is also paralleled by the best chefs in the region and the team’s players. The idea is interesting, but without a press release it is difficult to count all these references.
