Players shirts worn at tournaments differ to those replica or stadium version that many fans often buy to support their team. England's current Authentic version includes the Nike AeroSwift technology for a Vapor Match shirt that fits more tightly and has performance benefits over the standard fans version more commonly available at retail.
The official player's Euro 2016 shirt officially donned as the Vapor Match edition which used the brand's latest innovation of AeroSwift technology to wick away sweat quicker and stay lightweight by 20% and 25% respectively. Whilst the Vapor Match shirts possessed a highly compressive characteristic, Nike also made a standard fit Stadium version for fans to wear in the stands of which replicated the exact visual of the player's edition minus the patriotic 'Three' and 'Lions' stitching at the sleeve cuffs.
The Nike kit collection for the 2014 World Cup again saw the trademark Swoosh make two alternative shirt editions available for purchase in the form of the player Match and fan Stadium versions. Although matching in look, the Match edition worn by the likes of Wayne Rooney and co, possessed a dual-knit fabric and ventilation zones to wick sweat away from the body yet remain soft to touch and maintain a flattering shape. Seeing the technology-rich additions left absent on the Stadium version, both editions did however share a metallic weave to give a St. George inspired visual.
