CAIRO – 7 February 2018: England Football Association revealed on Wednesday the team’s home and away kits that will be used during the team’s participation in the 2018 World Cup in Russia next summer.
The home kit is white shirts with blue shorts while the away kit is red shirts with white shorts. England’s national team kits are sponsored by Nike.
The kits’ design is inspired by England’s kit at the 1966 World Cup when the English team won their only World Cup title.
Nike Football Apparel Senior Design Director Pete Hoppins said, “that classic identity, with a modern edge added, is imperative to the whole collection."
“We're delighted with the 2018 England Collection and it only adds to the excitement around our national teams following an unprecedented 2017,” Mark Bullingham, FA group commercial and marketing director, told press.
The 2018 World Cup draw put England alongside Panama, Belgium and Tunisia at Group G. England will start their participation against Tunisia before facing Panama five days later and they will end their group stage games against Belgium.
