1992 was a special year for Denmark. Initially falling short of qualifying for that year’s Euro tournament, Denmark took advantage of its second chance (courtesy of Yugoslavia’s exclusion) and went on with one of the best Cinderella runs in football history. The nation eventually finished as champions of Europe against then-reigning World Cup titlist Germany. It was a truly extraordinary result that capped off an amazing run that also involved advancing to the knockout stages ahead of the likes of England and France and overcoming reigning Euro champions the Netherlands in the semifinals.

With this spectacular underdog victory in mind, Hummel unveils the kits its national team will wear in this upcoming World Cup. Exactly thirty years removed from that incredible night in Sweden, this year’s Denmark kits are designed by the local sports brand with aesthetics that convey the hope and aspiration of the nation for another surprising and unforgettable title victory this December in Qatar.
DENMARK HUMMEL WORLD CUP KITS
All of Denmark’s 2022 World Cup Hummel kits, the red home and white away, are monochromatic. Another constant among the outfits is the tonal striped pattern covering the sleeves and extending a bit to the sides of the body. The said design is clearly based on the looks of the jersey worn by the squad in the 1992 Euro finals. Back then, the winning shirt, also produced by Hummel, featured a combination of white sleeves and a red body, with the now famous striping pattern applied in red.
In addition to the home and away, Hummel also launches a third shirt for Denmark. It has the same template as the other two outfits, applying them in black.
