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!

Little-known Spanish club CD Lugo is turning heads with some truly one-of-a-kind soccer kits.

Making the most of their sponsorship with beer brand Estrella Galicia, CD Lugo are finally offering fans the chance to to drink a beer, while wearing a beer:

And because four kits isn’t enough for a second-division club, they added a fifth, somehow even stranger kit, featuring a large octopus tentacle. Yes.

Your move, La Hoya Lorca.

Real Madrid to wear hot pink away kits next season

Real Madrid revealed their new kits for the 2014/15 season via Twitter on Monday, and they’re certain to raise some eyebrows.

While Real’s home kits remain traditionally white, the away kit is all PINK everything. And not just any pink — hot pink!

Earlier Monday, everyone’s go-to kit blog Todo Sobre Camisetas leaked images of the flashy new uniforms:

Real might want to back order these bad boys right now! You just know the shirts will be flying off the shelves, especially those with the number ‘7’ on the back.

Here’s a sneak peek at what Cristiano Ronaldo might look like in action next year:

Spain rush out third World Cup kit over strange FIFA concern

image

Would you be able to tell these two colors apart? (Image via Pies)

Spain and kit sponsor adidas have heeded FIFA’s demand to produce an ‘emergency’ all-white third kit for this summer’s World Cup. This means La Furia Roja are the only country besides hosts Brazil and Belgium (odd) to enter the tournament with three options in their wardrobe.

The reason for FIFA’s odd request? A concern that fans wouldn’t be able to tell Spain’s all-red kits (as the scheduled home side) apart from Holland’s all-blue uniforms for their Group B fixture on June 13.

Hmmmmm…. red and dark blue. These do appear to be two completely different, distinguishable colors - at least in our eyes. Then again, we are talking about FIFA here, the same organization that thinks it’s a great idea to play a World Cup in Qatar in over 110°F heat. Logic isn’t exactly part of their vocabulary.

Anyway, here is the leaked third kit for Spain, courtesy of Footy Headlines:

At least Spain fans have one more option to purchase in the team shop now?

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.

Bayern Munich unveils new home kits for 2014-15 season

In case you’d forgotten over the past couple of seasons, Bayern Munich’s colors extend beyond red and white. The Red Machine’s scheme also includes the blue found in the flag of Bavaria, and their latest kits make sure the soccer world knows it:

image

On Friday, the team unveiled the new look for next season. It’s been about 15 years since Bayern had a home kit with so much royal blue in them. Sure, the shirt might be a bit busy with all of the stripes, but we must say the change of pace is refreshing:

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.
