The distinctive new look is testimony to the ambitions of the new French Football teams, fusing French tradition with style and pride. The shirt has a button collar and the iconic French cockerel crest. Both sleeves have a tricolour motif while another tricolour detail can be found on the right sleeve.
The signature “our differences bring us together”, found on the French national team kits since 2011 is printed in the inside of the shirt, just below the collar. The pale blue also adorns the shorts and socks. The shorts have the tricolour detail on each side, while the top of the socks also sport the famous red, white and blue of the French flag.
In line with Nike’s commitment to combining performance with lower environmental impact, fabric for the new kit’s shorts is made with 100 percent recycled polyester, while the shirt fabric is made with a minimum 96 percent recycled polyester. Each kit is made using an average 13 recycled plastic bottles.
The kits are constructed using moisture-wicking Nike Dri-FIT technology: the fabric's knit structure is 23 percent lighter and 20 percent stronger than Nike’s previous kits. The shirts also feature laser-cut ventilation holes to promote localized cooling, to help regulate player temperatures during a match.
The French Female Football Team will be the first to wear the new kit on pitch vs. Brazil on March 9, and the men’s team will follow on March 22 for their qualifying game against Georgia.
The Sportswear Collection
Fans can express their love of the game on and off pitch in the new Nike FFF Sportswear collection featuring hoodies, tees and jackets. The team crest adorns the casual apparel collection.
The new away kit and Nike FFF Sportswear collectioin is seen here on Vincent Clerc (rugby), Raphael Varane (football), Malik Bentalha (actor), Blaise Matuidi (football), David Fernandes (football), Corinne Franco (football) and Renaud Lavilennie (pole vault).
