Bayern Munich present new away kit featuring Dutch flag?

image

Bayern Munich revealed their new away kits for the upcoming season on Friday, and while undeniably sharp, they do have a rather peculiar look to them.

The red and blue horizontal stripes across the white shirt draw strong comparisons to the Dutch flag!

What, did Arjen Robben design these? Is former Bayern manager Louis van Gaal somehow going to take the credit?

Spanish side unveils new Tuxedo kits


The lower leagues in Spain just keep on rolling out ridiculous new jerseys.

A day after second-division side CD Lugo raised eyebrows with their uniquely-themed beer and octopus kits, third tier club Cultural y Deportivo Leonesa classed things up a bit with these new fake tuxedo kits.

Oh yes:

Love ‘em or hate ‘em, you have to agree that all these kits coming out of Spain are still better than Manchester United’s new threads.

YUCK!

Barcelona unveil new home kit for 2014/15 season

image

After introducing their new manager (Luis Enrique) and new starting goalkeeper (Marc-Andre ter Stegen) this week, Barcelona have now unveiled their new home kits for next season. And guess what? They feature blue and red vertical stripes. Imagine that!

Jokes aside, the new shirt looks fresh to death. The vibrant yellow collar from this past season gives way to a unique blue one with a Catalan touch - the Senyera flag in the open v-neck. It’s the first time the Catalan flag has been placed there, and it adds for a little spice!

image

Another change from this year is the center stripe will now be red instead of blue, which is also a good thing because then we can tell Barca’s shirt apart from Bayern Munich’s new kit.

Well done, Barca, well done.

Usually you can count on Cameroon to have something off the wall up their sleeve when it comes to kit designs.

We might be a bit late to the party here, but their latest design is pretty slick. The pattern is a crisp, but not overwhelming, nod to Africa. Compared to some of their kits from seasons past, these are a godsend:

Who could forget the sleeveless kits from the 2002 Africa Cup of Nations?

And not to be outdone in 2004, Cameroon opted for these one-piece numbers during the Africa Cup of Nations.

Yep, we’d say they’re back on the right track.

The rumored USA kit is very, very blah

Just 110 days before the World Cup, USA fans may have received an early look at what their team will be wearing in Brazil.

Yikes! It looks more like an Old Navy polo than a soccer jersey. But lucky for all of us, USMNT fans are quite the, umm, creative bunch.

Pour one out for kit nerds everywhere.

Nike releases Brazil’s World Cup kit

The moment every Brazilian has been waiting for is finally here: the release of the Selecao’s World Cup kit.

You’re not going to believe this, but it’s yellow and green, with blue shorts and white socks:

image

The only notable difference from past shirts is the subtle V-neck look, though techies can nerd out over Nike’s use of 3D body-scanning. The torsos of every member of the Brazilian squad were measured to produce custom-fit shirts. Obviously regular folk won’t receive that benefit, but Nike’s best-selling international jersey is still set to make a killing, especially within the World Cup host country.

Brazil’s manager Luiz Felipe Scolari said, “The shirt looks great, the only thing missing is a sixth star. We aim to have that on there after the World Cup.”

…and then everyone will need to buy the updated kit.

Can you feel it? The best time of the year is near. No, not Christmas. World Cup Jersey Leaking Time, of course!

With 2014 creeping ever closer, kit suppliers for next year’s World Cup teams are eager to release their jerseys just in time for the holiday season. And that means we should be receiving more leaked images of said kits each and every week. Mexico became the first team to officially release their World Cup kit (if they make it!), showing them off in their last World Cup qualifier vs Panama. But until the other nations hold their announcements, the fun is all in the speculation.

Today, we heard of two new kits being leaked — Germany’s and Spain’s. And we must say, they are quite fancy:

Fresh. To. Death. But which do you prefer?

To stay up to date with all the World Cup kit releases (and of course, the leaks), check out FootyHeadlines.com. They always seem to be on top of it.
