I love Football and especially the big events and there is none bigger than the World Cup. Here is a quick review of some of the kits on offer for this summers Fifa World Cup which kicked off on Thursday the 12th June in Sao Paulo, Brazil. With 32 teams competing and both having a home and away kit that’s a lot of football jerseys. This time around there have been some very strong guidelines, with Fifa dictating to the national football associations that they must have two very different and contrasting kits. Also for HD broadcasting purpose they have urged teams to wear monotone kits (matching Top and shorts) which has meant that many teams have had to change their traditional kits or colours, which I guess limits creativity a little. Many kit suppliers have opted to look to the past to inspire their designs which has resulted in some great clean and modern yet retro feel kits this year.
I love the beautifully simple Honduras national kit. The all white kit with Blue logos reflects the colours of the Honduran national flag and was designed by Joma the Spanish sportswear manufacturer and kit sponsor for the Honduras national team. I especially like the single H for Honduras. Another nice detail is a binding tape at the bottom of the shirt which includes the words “Honduras, Fe, Respeto, Valentia, Honestidad, Actitud” and translates as Honduras, Faith, Respect, Courage, Honesty and Attitude.
