Mexico – National Football Kit 2014

Nacho Libre Wackiness

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.


There are some very simple, clean and modern kit designs this year at the world cup and then there is the Mexican Football kit. With it’s lightening strikes across the chest and the green white and red colour theme it definitely stands out from the crowd.  It reminds me a little of the Lucha Libre Luchadores or the Mexican Wrestling, wrestlers costumes, but hey why not, at least the designers at Adidas have managed to bring some personality to the proceedings, which they say, reflects the passion and pride of the Mexican nation.
