Ahead of the FIFA World Cup 2022, Argentina, Germany, Japan, Mexico, and Spain’s men’s national teams unveiled their home and away kits. 

Adidas, the official kit supplier of the aforementioned countries’ Football Associations, saw each federation kit as a canvas for creativity and an opportunity to capture and express the spirit of each nation with designs influenced by key cultural touchpoints, ranging from the ancient civilisations and Mixtec art of Mexico celebrated in the nation’s away jersey to the origami crow inspiring Japan’s home kit. Dynamic colour spectrums represent each unique national identity, with progressive graphics inspired by the future.

Jürgen Rank, Senior Design Director Football at Adidas said: 

“When we design national team kits for tournaments as big as the FIFA World Cup, we always keep in mind that these designs will become a part of legendary footballing history. For us, it’s crucial first and foremost to create kits that equip the world’s greatest footballing athletes with performance-led apparel that helps them unlock their highest level of play, while at the same time always featuring unique and unforgettably iconic designs that are bold, eye-catching and create a true sense of excitement amongst fans all across the globe.”

Argentina

Argentina’s away jersey is inspired by the pride of the nation and its quest for a more equitable world. Its vibrant purple hues represent gender equality, combined with fiery graphics in reference to the national flag’s iconic Sun of May.

Germany

Placed over the heart and detailed in gold, a heat-applied team badge takes centre stage on Germany’s home jersey, while a bold vertical stripe inspired by the very first Germany shirt elevates the classic clean aesthetic to new levels. Detailing on the collar and shirt bindings display the iconic colours of the nation’s flag. The away jersey captures the spirit of the team, using the colours of the national flag and blurring the ‘D’ of ‘Deutschland’ to reflect the dynamic football played by the squad.

Japan

Representing self-expression, Japan’s home jersey features a bold origami three-legged-crow-inspired design, whilst its away jersey is crafted to reflect the flowing style of Japan’s play: the blurred graphics are also inspired by origami, brought to life through a design that illustrates speed.

Mexico 

Paying homage to its ancient civilisations, Adidas infuses Mexico’s away jersey with Mixtec art to summon the fighting spirit of the nation. Amidst the eye-catching all-over design, a sign-off on the inside collar displays Quetzalcoat’s serpent body – a representation of humankind’s physical abilities.

Spain

Constructed from its unique footballing DNA, Spain’s home jersey makes a timeless statement as it’s dominated by the team’s famous deep red colour, with colour references to the flag across the collar and shirt bindings. The away jersey features an undulating graphic taking dynamic inspiration from the country’s 1982 logo when Spain last hosted the world’s biggest football tournament.
