Brazil Home Kit
2022/23 Brazil Home Shirt
Brazil always go for that traditional full yellow look, but the 2022/23 Nike home shirt gets an inspirational boost for the Selecao’s quest of its sixth title from the specific shade: the same one used on the 2002 Cup-winning kit. As mentioned above, the jaguar is central to the design, featuring the animal’s spotty spots for its all-over subtle pattern. Further contributing to the traditional look are the usual accent colours of green and blue prominent on the sleeve cuffs and collar, and their edges.
Brazil is the winningest nation in FIFA World Cup, having won the title five times. In addition, they are the only country to have participated in all editions of the said competition.

The yellow, blue and green colours were first implemented into the Brazil kit in the 1950s after the original white and blue colours were criticised for lacking patriotism. Nike is the current kit sponsor of Brazil.

The sides home colours yellow, green and blue are to correlate with the country’s flag and the geographical features such as the Amazon Rainforest, the Sun and water.

Brazil Women’s Kit
The Canarinho jerseys have become synonymous to World Cup success given Brazil’s magnificent record. Their long history in the international stage and their achievements caused them to have notable rivalries with the likes of Argentina, Uruguay, France, and Italy. Recent achievements include the 2016 Olympic gold medal finish against their 2016 WC tormentors Germany and the 2019 Copa America Championship. Brazil contributes a lot of spectacular goals in the game’s history of highlight reels that include Roberto Carlos’ free kick against France, Ronaldinho’s against England, and Ronaldo’s brace vs Germany to win the 2002 WC and to avenge their defeat and his abysmal performance against France during the 1998 WC.

Brazil play their home international games at the Maracana Stadium in Rio de Janeiro, plus the other stadiums located across the country.

Pele remains the top scorer of the country with 77 goals while Cafu maintains his achievement of most appearances with 142.
Brazil World Cup Kits
World Cup 2022 – Brazil’s participation in the first-ever winter and Arab World Cup was marked by its kit pair designed with a leopard skin pattern, an all-over application for the home and a faded transition on the sleeves for the away. The former reverted back to a pale shade of yellow and the latter opted for an azure shade. Brazil’s attacking options for this WC were plenty as it had the likes of Neymar, Gabriel Jesus, Antony and Vinicius Junior to lead the line. Another interesting point in the squad was the goalkeeper post-arguably the top two Premier League GKs in Liverpool’s Alisson and Manchester City’s Ederson both gunning for the nation’s number 1 spot.
World Cup 2018 – Selecao Canarinho wore a clean-looking home shirt that had its bespoke colour fall under the yellow-orange spectrum, with its green short collar providing the only other collar detail. The 2018 away kit was identifiable through its 3D-looking irregular polygon pattern designed on the main body frame. The campaign ended with a quarterfinal defeat against Belgium that had the likes of Romelu Lukaku, Kevin de Bruyne and Vincent Kompany.
World Cup 2014 – Green trims through the sleeve cuffs and the collar provided the accent to the plain yellow-orange home shirt in 2014. Dotted hoop design covered the entirety of the alternate shirt. However, both of these kits were going to be a symbol of a disappointing World Cup run (culminating in a 7-1 semifinal lost against Germany in the quarterfinals) hosted in their own country.
World Cup 2010 – The 2010 Brazil kits featured singular stripe running from the shoulders up to the sleeve (green for the home and yellow for the away). Furthermore, the alternate shirt displayed a subtle dotted pattern, also in the same yellow shade as the template shoulder stripe design. Eventual runners-up Netherlands stopped Brazil on its tracks in their quarterfinal matchup. Kaka, in his last WC appearance, ended as the top-joint assist provider with three.
World Cup 2006 – Before Miroslav Klose’s record-setting 16th goal in the 2014 World Cup, ‘O Fenomeno’ had the most World Cup goals with 15, the last of which was scored in 2006 against Ghana. That gave 2006 WC something to remember for Brazil, which bowed out of the competition via their 1-0 quarterfinal defeat to nemesis France. The vividness of the yellow home was matched by the complementary green accents on the high collar and stylised sleeve piping. Alternatively, Brazil played with a predominantly blue shirt with white sleeve cuffs and round collar.
World Cup 2002 – The three Big Rs (Ronaldo, Rivaldo, Ronaldinho) led the Selecao’s charge to its fifth championship, putting up memorable highlight reels like Ronaldinho’s 40-yard free kick against England and Ronaldo’s Golden Shoe display (8 goals). Immortalising the football glory were home and away kits in their usual yellow and blue respective colours. The kits stood out courtesy of the elongated triangular trims (green for the home and white for the away) on the sides of the body.
World Cup 1998 – Nothing expressed the disheartening feeling of coming up short in the 1998 World Cup finals than Ronaldo’s disappointed look after France won 3-0 to clinch the title. What’s more, the expression was made even more iconic with the fact that his boots were hanging around his neck. Those were not ordinary football boots-they were the special R9 Nike boots, the first-ever pair of the Swoosh brand’s most iconic silo of all time. Apart from the noticeable trims running continuously from the shoulders up to the sleeves, it was the usual colours for Brazil’s ’98 home and away shirts.
World Cup 1994 – The squad that won the 1994 World Cup in the United States was considered by many as unorthodox, relying mainly on pragmatism and defensive style as opposed to the usual attacking flair of other Brazilian cup-winning teams. Nonetheless, their kits had standout designs that still marked the significance of that year to Brazilian football. Both shirts featured silhouette designs, displaying the CBF’s crest on the home and the governing body’s lettering on the away.
World Cup 1990 – Symbolised by midfielder Dunga, Brazil utilised a defensive scheme to play through the ’90 Italy World Cup. However, they were dealt a R16 exit by South American rival Argentina. The 1990 home kit was one, if not the most dimmed in terms of the shade of yellow used, with the secondary shirt sporting a recognisable blue base. Both outfits had an non-button collar in the usual green and white accents, respectively.
World Cup 1986 – The ’90s kits had their actual origins in 1986 kits, the second set Brazil got with technical partner Topper during their partnership from 1982 to 1990. Brazil yielded to the Michel Platini-led France via a 4-3 penalty shootout defeat in the quarterfinals.
World Cup 1982 – Brazil were favourties in 1982 and had the likes of Zico, Socrates, Eder and Falcao to power the team all the way. Unfortunately, the nation only reached the second group stage, where they were eliminated by eventual champions Italy (which also defeated Maradona and Argentina on that same group stage). Brazil’s first set of Topper kits featured round collars instead of the polo ones on the succeeding kit pairs.
World Cup 1978 – Reflective of the only time adidas produced Brazil’s World Cup kits, the ’78 home and away shirts featured three running stripes along its sleeves and shoulders in their respective bespoke accents. The 1978 World Cup was hosted by eventual winners Argentina, which had been experiencing political turmoil for the past few years at that time. Controversies surrounded this edition of the World Cup as many teams alleged favourable treatments (and, at times, outright intervention) being given to ensure that the home side win the cup. Brazil, for their part, put into question Argentina’s 6-0 win against Peru in the second group stage (Argentina needed to win by 4 goals to move past Brazil in goal difference and proceed to the finals).
World Cup 1974 – Losing much of its stars, including Pele, proved too much of a loss for Brazil as the team only mustered a fourth place finish. Their kits at that time were the plain-looking yellow home and blue away, with their respective traditional accents colour their round collar and sleeve cuffs.
World Cup 1970 – Before the 2010 La Rojas came into the picture, the consensus best World Cup team ever was the ’70 Brazil that was comprised of Pele, Carlos Alberto Torres, Jairzinho, Tostão, Gérson and Rivelino. The shirts worn by this great side were carried over by the succeeding Selecao team of ’74.
World Cup 1966 – Affected by the tournament’s excessive physical play which led to Pele abandoning one of the group matches, Brazil crashed out of the group stage to become the second champion nation after ’50 Italy to bow out of the succeeding World Cup in the opening round. Brazil’s kits at this time had polo collars with deep v-necklines.
World Cup 1962 – With Pele injured, star player Garrincha took on the mantle and led Brazil to its second consecutive World Cup title, duplicating Italy’s feat in ’34 and ’38. Brazil’s wore the same cup-winning kits in the succeeding World Cup in England.
World Cup 1958 – Aside from winning the World Cup title and becoming the first nation to do so outside of their continent, Brazil also made ’58 memorable with the introduction of Pele. The Brazilian great was the first teenager to score in a World Cup tournament, which was only followed exactly 60 years later by France’s Kylian Mbappe. The had the same construct as that of the ’62.
World Cup 1954 – Kits worn from 1958 to 1966 had their roots to Brazil’s outfits in 1954. It was in 1954 that the nation started wearing the familiar yellow home and blue away shirts, part of rebranding the team after the eventful 1950 World Cup.
World Cup 1950 – Prior to 1954, Brazil had their home shirts in white with blue accents (sometimes also wearing a light blue alternate kit). The end for the white shirt came in 1950, when they lost to Uruguay in the final match. The lost was so unexpected, given that Brazil breezed through final group round easily, whereas Uruguay struggled against the same teams that Brazil dominated with 7-1/6-1 scorelines. The defeat caused a national mourning, and consequently got the infamous ‘Maracanazo’ label. Maracanazo would always be invoked whenever Uruguay and Brazil face in a match.
