Nike sold Umbro last year but managed to get the England National Team contract from them on the way out. Nike is now now outfitting Team England in its tech infused textiles, adding its masterful sense of design. England should debut their new home digs on the 29th of May when they square off against Ireland at Wembley Stadium.
A clean, distinctive design takes the kit back to its roots with its traditional colors of white and dark blue to celebrate the Football Association’s 150th anniversary. The iconic three lions crest was prominently featured in dark blue on the team’s first kit, and once again, the crest is the proud focus – now with a gold border, a gold star above it signifying England’s World Cup win, and a gold ribbon graphic below inscribed with “150 years” and the dates 1863 and 2013, marking the Football Association’s anniversary.
The kit is now available as a pre-order on Nike.com along with more Team England gear.
