World Cup Kits
Croatia's home shirt for the 2014 World Cup pays homage to Croatia’s birth as a football nation back in 1990 as it features their iconic red and white chequerboard appearance. The new home shirt combines old and new featuring red sleeves the Croatian side wore back in 1990.
The 2014 World Cup away kit features a bright blue colour along with red and white checks on the shoulders and a red crew-neck collar and red and white checks in a panel. The away kit is complemented with blue shorts and socks with red trim.
Croatia's chequered red and white pattern is one of the most recognisable designs on the globe. Along white shorts and blue socks complete with chequer trim the Croatia home kit is one of the most unique designs in football history.
On their first appearance in France 1998 the famous chequered pattern was reduced to a simple design on the right side of what was an otherwise white shirt. This design was later copied by English outfit Leyton Orient. The shirt was topped off with red and blue trim on the collar and sleeve hems. Croatia legend Davor Suker was the key player at the tournament.
The chequered style remained as the shirt's base design in 2002 and 2006 although the former incorporated white sleeves and blue trim into the design. Croatia have always played in white shorts and blue socks with red and white effects only added to the sock from 2002 onwards.
Croatia's 2006 effort was one of the most memorable World Cup shirts for the European side. The whole shirt featured their unique chequered design along with white shorts and red socks.
Croatia's kit suppliers includes an array of brands such as Lotto Sport Italia and Nike. American brand Nike took over from Lotto in the 90's and has remained since.
Boasting the likes of Luka Modric, Mario Mandzukic and Ivan Rakitic in their current side, the Croatia football team always surprise in major tournaments with the 1998 World Cup being a good example.
