On Thursday, the first adidas kits for the UEFA Euro 2016 tournament in France were revealed, with the Swedish National Team taking the spotlight. The Swedes will look to qualify for France via the play-offs after finishing third in Group G.
The jersey is scheduled to make its on-field debut against Denmark, who also released their Euro 2016 jersey today, on November 14 in the first leg of the Euro 2016 playoff between the 2 nations.
Sweden’s new home kit for this expanded European Championship comes in the classic yellow with bright royal blue details. The jersey is yellow with a blue crew collar with Sverige (Sweden) at the back and thin blue trim on the sleeves with Swedish flag on the left arm sleeve.
A major difference in this year’s kits will be the placement of adidas’ trademark three-stripes. The stripes have switched from the shoulders to the sides as piping under the arms. Blue stripes can be seen from the pits to the hem. The chest has sublimated hoops.
The shorts come in a bright royal blue with a standard yellow adidas three-stripe trim on each side. The socks are yellow with blue details, as the top has a blue stripe with adidas three-stripe trim going vertically, and an SvFF (initials for the Swedish football association) label in the middle, completing the kit.
The 2016 Sweden Home Kit will be available at WorldSoccerShop.com.
