Spurs Go '90s Retro for European Campaign

September 03, 2019 - Tottenham Hotspur’s 2019-20 third kit pays tribute to iconic players of the past by bringing back the famous light blue shade synonymous with the talent that helped carve the way for the club’s future success. 

The new kit, which will debut later this month when Spurs' European campaign begins, is light blue from head to toe and features numerous other nods to ’90s jersey culture. An alternating matte/shine jacquard forming a "Spurs" graphic spreads across the front of the shirt, the club crest has an elevated trim and the ’90s vibe is topped up by a Nike Futura logo. 

“It’s one of my favorite jerseys for sure, the light blue pops and the retro aesthetic goes down well," says lifelong Spurs fan and prominent UK rap star AJ Tracey, featured in the campaign imagery. "I can’t wait to wear it to the European games, especially this season."

The shirt is framed by a dark blue trim on the sleeves and on the classic-’90s button-down collar. The same dark blue details the shorts and crowns the otherwise light blue socks.

“Everyone will see the retro influence; it’s a tribute to the jersey culture of the 90s,” says Tottenham and England forward Harry Kane. “When you see the light blue, you think of those players that paved the way, and I hope this year we can wear it with pride to go all the way.”

The 2019-20 Tottenham Hotspur third kit releases September 4 from nike.com.

Chelsea’s Home Kits Celebrate the Bridge

May 02, 2019 - The Blues have called their iconic stadium, Stamford Bridge, home since 1905 — making it fitting inspiration for the 2019-20 home kit. The club’s classic blue jersey is covered in an all-over graphic comprising imagery of the famous North Stand, the East and West Stands and the raucous Shed End merged into an abstract print.

“We’ve created so many memories at The Bridge over the years, so it’s only fitting that we pay tribute to such an iconic stadium through the jersey,” says forward Eden Hazard.

The shirt features a V-neck and a red and white CFC monogram on the back of the collar. Inside, there's a lion (borrowed from the club crest) with “Pride of London” written around it (the Blues mantra). The shorts, also blue, are complemented by white socks that have Chelsea's traditional red and blue trim up the calf.

“The Bridge is hallowed turf for Chelsea players and fans alike,” says Pete Hoppins, Nike Football Apparel Senior Design Director. “It’s such a key part of the club’s identity and we are delighted to present a kit that is essentially a tribute to one of England’s oldest and most important stadiums.”

The 2019-20 Chelsea home kit will debut May 4 during the club’s final league home game of the season. It will be available for sale beginning May 2 on nike.com/chelsea and at the Stamford Bridge Megastore.

Nike’s Brasil Copa America Jersey Celebrates a 100-Year Victory

April 09, 2019 - In 1919, Brasil hosted the first edition of Copa America. Wearing a white kit, the team made history that year by winning the tournament at home and starting a journey of victories that transformed Brazilian football into a national icon. 

Merging the early-1920s vintage feel of football with the modern style of contemporary sport, the special-edition Copa America jersey celebrates the 100th anniversary of that energetic moment. 

White pays tribute to the historic 1919 trophy. A classic polo neck, player numbers and details on the sleeves are blue.

The Brazilian National Team will debut the 2019-20 Brasil Copa America 100th Anniversary Jersey as part of a special uniform at the first match of the tournament.

Five Things Every Jets Fan Should Know About Their New Uniforms

April 04, 2019 - The New York Jets unveiled their new uniforms tonight at Gotham Hall in New York City. The three versions keep the Nike Vapor Untouchable chassis and get a modern upgrade for the franchise’s 60th season. Here are five updates to look out for:

1. A bolder green

Home, away and alternate uniforms include a green that was exclusively developed for the Jets. Also new is an all-black base for the alternate uniforms (it's the first you'll see the color since being removed from the team's palette before the 1998 season).

2. New logos

Three new logos (including “Jets” lettering on the helmets without the oval frame or the "NY" type) will appear on the team’s helmets, fan gear and related memorabilia.

3. "New York" reads on the chest

It’s the first time in team history that the city name appears on the uniform.

4. Bold, angular stripes

A new linear design, reminiscent of a jet’s flight trail, runs across the shoulders and down the pant leg. They're more than just looks: The stripes on the shoulder pads meet at the vented grille neckline for improved cooling during play.

5. Updated numbers and font

The jersey’s previous font has been updated to a new, custom typeface with sloped angles intended to evoke a feeling of motion and force.

Fan jerseys are available now on nike.com and at Nike SoHo and Nike House of Innovation.
