Black and red have been the other most commonly used colours, with the 2014 World Cup kit incorporating both colours into a beautiful horizontally striped design. Marathon’s 3 appearances (2002, 2006, 2014) have all been with Ecuador and Rapido’s 2 appearances (1990, 1994) were with South Korea. Nike (8) – Australia, Mexico, Brazil, Croatia, Portugal, Netherlands, South Korea, USA. Nike (8) – Belgium, Brazil, Croatia, Nigeria, Portugal, Russia, South Korea, USA. Nike (10) – Australia, Brazil, Croatia, England, France, Greece, Netherlands, Portugal, South Korea, USA. Umbro (2) – England, Sweden. Since the 1974 tournament, Umbro has had one or more teams at every tournament except for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. South Africa may have been a return to the top for adidas but it was the end of an era for Umbro. Lotto, however, may have gotten the most bang for their buck. This is impressive, however, considering the swoosh only got in the game at the 1998 World Cup. The famous Double Diamond’s, who outfitted 15 of the 16 teams at the 1966 FIFA World Cup BUT without brand logos, run as England’s football jersey sponsor came to an end. It was the first time that every team featured a brand logo on their soccer kit.
And it was the first time that Italy wore a brand logo on their jersey at the World Cup. And more importantly it allows the brand to market and sell the team’s authentic and replica soccer jerseys to fans around the world. Prior to the 1974 World Cup, national soccer teams had jerseys provided by the major brands of the day. El Tri Colors World Cup jersey has been provided by 6 brands (Levi’s, Adidas, Umbro, Aba Sport, Atletica, and Nike). The 3-Stripes provided the national team soccer kits for 50% or more of the teams at each World Cup through Italia 1990. adidas continued to provide more national teams with their World Cup kits until, ironically, the tournament returned to Germany in 2006 when Puma and Nike both outfitted more teams. The reward for the winning brands is being able to provide the national team soccer kit with their brand logo displayed usually over the right chest on the jersey, the left leg of the shorts, as well as on the socks in addition to other officially licensed team apparel. Since most players wore adidas soccer cleats the move to providing team jerseys made sense.
It was replaced by the adidas workmark logo used on jerseys in 1994. That logo was quickly replaced by the adidas Performance logo starting with the 1998 World Cup. The 1998 shirt featured a tad more black than your standard Argentina shirt, the dark collar with three stripes and embroided logo sat on top of a crisp blue and white jersey with a fantastically retro typeface, just look at the 3D effect on that number 9. Glorious. The jersey itself, though, is about as classic as an England jersey can be – white and deep navy blue with a ’90s-style jacquard pattern on the shirt and a smart collar. While all the designs are not home runs, the patriotism-factor can overcome that and usually does. FIFA World Cup jersey sponsorships (or national team kit partnerships) are big business. The 1974 World Cup was just the start for adidas’ dominance in World Cup jersey sponsorships. In all adidas has been the jersey sponsor for 127 teams since the 1974 World Cup. It was the fewest teams that adidas have ever sponsored at the quadrennial tournament. A few squads, including the host country, Brazil, have a third version.
