Greece 2018 Shirts



Greece play their home games in a kit of blue shirts, shorts and socks, with the away strip being all white. The shirt has seldom featured in winning competitions, however, they were the surprise victors at Euro 2004.

The Greek national football team played their first international against Italy in Athens, Greece on the 7th April 1929, Italy won 4-1. The Greek side have several well known footballers to play for their nation in the past decade including Giorgas Karagounis, Angelos Charisteas, Avraam Papadopoulos, Georgias Samaras, Dimitris Salpingidis, Dmitrios Papadopoulos and Kostas Katsouranis.

Greece have usually had either blue or white home kits where in the past decade they usually switch between the two colours for major tournaments.

Greece nicknamed 'Ethniki' and 'Piratko' they are most notably known for the winning the 2004 UEFA Euro tournament where they beat Portugal 1-0 in the final. Nike and Greece announced a new partnership where the shirts will be manufactured by the American brand. The Greeks wear an all blue home shirt with white trim and the away shirt is all white with blue trim.

World Cup Kits

The 2014 World Cup away kit for Greece sees a blue display with white trim making it essentially a colour revert for the Greeks. The blue shirt was settled to be the away kit for Greece after their historic 2004 UEFA Euro triumph. The away kit is complete with blue shorts and socks.

Having previously donned a blue home shirt Greece now currently wear a white home shirt which is in reflection to UEFA EURO 2004 triumph. Blue is now used a subtle colour for the trim offering a simple yet effective shirt design. Supplied by American powerhouse Nike, the 2014 World Cup Greece home shirt is stylish, contemporary and simple revealing a white display with blue trim. Compact with a blue polo collar and deep blue cuffs on the sleeves the home and away kits are one of the most classic designs ever for the Greeks.

Greece have entered the World Cup on two previous occasions in 1994 and in 2010. At the former, the Greeks used navy blue as the colour of their home shirt, with white used as the alternative option.

From their success at UEFA Euro 2004 onwards, the team changed their base colour to white. With the addition of blue trim and the stripes of their sponsor it was white in which Greece would make their second outing just four years ago. With their kits now supplied by Nike, white looks set to remain the nation's preferred colour for some time.

In terms of away shirts Greece first had an all white display which switched to an all blue kit after the 2004 UEFA Euro success. The new blue away kits is always almost accompanied with white trim.

Greece's best designed World Cup kit came in 2010, when the country debuted its current colour scheme at the tournament with a unique and simple kit design.

The earliest Greece shirts were supplied by adidas in the early 80's, then Asics and Diadora in the late 80's and early 90s, Lotto Sport Italia and Le Coq Sportif in the early 00's then adidas from 2003 onwards.

Greece rocked the world when they remarkably won the 2004 UEFA Euro Tournament as they were major underdogs especially against Portugal who they beat in the final. Thanks to a header from Angelos Charisteas Greece will never be underestimated ever again.
