Ranked 46 in the world by FIFA, Bulgaria is now wearing kits from Spanish firm Joma after several years with PUMA. The Lions’ new match range was unveiled earlier this month during the last round of UEFA EURO 2016 qualifiers.
The Bulgaria Under-19 men’s team was the first of the BFU’s sides to don Joma uniforms when they wore temporary kits during this summer’s UEFA championship for their age group.
The 2014/15 Joma home jersey is in the white made famous by FC Barcelona legend Hristo Stoichkov and the rest of the Bulgarian team that made it to the semi-finals of the 1994 World Cup in the USA. It is accented in green and matched with green shorts and either white or red socks. Soccer fans may recognize the shirt’s design as the same as the one used for the Fiorentina 2013/14 home kit.
Bulgaria’s new away kit is a simple round neck jersey in all red. Joma logos are embroidered on its sleeves just below a tonal print of the lion from the country’s coat of arms.
Bulgaria is currently in fourth place of EURO 2016 qualification Group H with one win and two losses from three matches played to date. The team’s last appearance in a major competition came via a short run at EURO 2004.
