Today marks 100 days to go until the World Cup kicks off in South Africa. If you haven’t bought your England World Cup home shirt or England World Cup away shirt yet, now is the time to do it. The away shirt (pictured above) is available for pre-order so you can be one of the first to get it as soon as it’s released.
The new away shirt is inspired by the 1966 England kit, the one in which they won the World Cup final against West Germany at Wembley. While the new away shirt was certainly inspired by the 1966 red Aztec shirt worn by England, this contemporary shirt is very much designed for the modern footballer. The critically acclaimed conceptual designer and artist, Aitor Throup, designed the new away kit. Aitor is a Creative Consultant to Umbro and he wanted to make the players as comfortable as possible, so they can concentrate on what’s important: winning football matches. To that end, the England away kit is full of small yet significant touches, such as the diagonal, spiralling seam of the sleeve and the ergonomic shape of the shorts which avoids any disruption during movement.
The state-of-the art England shirt is a clean white, with no trim, and a retro fold-over collar – with shoulder dart, tailored for improved fit, and anatomically tailored sleeves shaped to enhance performance and visual style. There’s a high-definition new England crest embroidery over your heart. Plus, the shirt features stretch rib and woven material for a great fit and the climate control fabric reduces heat build-up and quickly transports moisture away from the skin.
