Germany 2018 Shirts



Germany play their home games in the Allianz Arena, wearing a home shirt of white, these white shirts are part of one of the most successful national football teams. The Germans have appeared in seven World Cup finals, winning three of them. They have also appeared in five European Championship finals, winning three. The national team's away shirt colour has changed several times.

The German national football team played their first international against Switzerland in Basel, Switzerland on the 5th April 1908, Switzerland won the game 5-3. Germany have had several iconic footballers play for their colours including Franz Beckenbauer, Gerd Muller, Lothar Matthaus, Andreas Brehme, Oliver Kahn, Karl-Heinz Rumenigge, Rudi Voller, Jurgen Klinsmann, Michael Ballack and Miroslav Klose. Germany boasts several household names in their squad including Mario Gotze, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Manuel Neuer.

Germany have hosted the FIFA World Cup on two occasions where they hosted and won the 1974 tournament as well as winning the 1954 and 1990 tournaments. Germany have famously been runners-up in the World Cup on four occasions and three occasions in the UEFA Euro Championships.

Coached by Joachim Low, Germany are one of the strongest national teams in Europe and the world as they have been in several finals and semi-finals of the FIFA World Cup and UEFA Euro tournaments which gives their nickname of 'Die Mannschaft' meaning 'The Team'. Since their first international in 1908 Germany played as West Germany and wore black and white home shirt which later evolved into a white home shirt in which they still currently wear today whilst the nations away shirt is green which reflects Germany's respect for the Ireland as the first team to play them after the World War and are manufactured by German brand adidas.

World Cup Kits

Germany's kits began simple as they played it safe for several years staying with a standard white home shirt with black accents. This was the first colour combination used at their debut 1934 World Cup. Germany's kit for the 2014 World Cup will undoubtedly be among the most varied with the Germany set to appear the competition with white shorts for the first time in their history which may be a result of the latest kit clash rulings by FIFA. A gradient red arrow which resembles the country's flag with its three shades is featured on the chest.

The new Germany 2014 World Cup away kit for Germany features thick red and black hoops along with fine lines incorporated into the shirt’s red horizontal stripes. Supplier adidas today presented the new away kit for the German national team in collaboration with the German football Association. adidas’ signature stripes are coloured in white/silver.

In 1982 adidas introduced their signature three stripes into the design. The shirts common display in that period saw a white shirt with black adidas stripes. The colours of Germany's national flag came into play as well forming some memorable and iconic shirts.

The colour's of the German flag were dropped in 2002 in favour of a more classic and traditional design but made a return four years later with red and yellow trim making an appearance on the front of the shirt. The last World Cup in 2010 was the first time colour had been used on the team's socks, in an otherwise simple design that featured a single red stripe running down the right of the shirt through the team's crest.

Having won the FIFA World Cup on three occasions Germany's most iconic kit was the one used at the 1974 FIFA World Cup. It was a classic white shirt with black shorts and white socks along with black rounded colour and trim on the sleeves. This shirt was also worn Germany legend Franz Beckenbauer.

Other memorable shirts included the one used at the 1990 World Cup which featured a unique three stripe display of the national colours (black, red and yellow) across the chest and shoulders. Germany were victorious on this outing with the likes of Rudi Voller, Lothar Matthaus, Andreas Brehme and Jurgen Klinsmann.

Germany have had very few kit suppliers in their history with adidas producing their kits for over two decades. Very little has changed with the Germany home kit since the nation first made and appearance at a FIFA World Cup in 1934.

Away shirts for the Germans have almost always seen black or green colours. The green colours are derived from the DFB federation logo which was designed using green and white, the colours that make up a football pitch.
