Paris Saint Germain will take to the pitch in an all-yellow kit, celebrating the legacy of its Brazilian players.
PSG player Marquinhos debuts the new 2017-18 away jersey during a game with kids from the PSG Academy in São Paulo.
Brazil won its 3rd world title in 1970. With that achievement, the Brazilian game — bold, technical and innate — was universally considered the best in the world. That same year, Paris Saint Germain was founded, and from its inception, the dream of the club was to integrate the magicians of the seleção into the roster.
Since then, Brazil has been the most represented nation (outside France) in the club, with 29 players passing through the Parc des Princes over the last 50 years. Paris, the city of light, is avant-garde, and the atypical style of the Brazilian game is uniquely matched to its singularity.
Between the 1970s and '90s, the most famous Brazilians players joined the club, bringing with them a free and elegant form of football. The strong relationship between Paris Saint Germain and Brazil strengthened in 2001, when the talented Ronaldo de Assis Moreira, a.k.a. Ronaldinho, arrived, and with him, an otherworldly talent that has inspired future generation of footballers.
Today, the presence of Thiago Silva and Marquinhos at PSG reminds of the indelible link between the country of football and the city of light. Moreover, the striking yellow and blue color palette of the new away kit reflects the club’s strong Brazilian influence from players past and present – including Ronaldinho, Silva and Marquinhos.

The kit features revolutionary Aeroswift technology and a modern aesthetic that references the club’s heritage through color and detailing. The shirt’s engineered knit zones create a subtle geometric pattern that enhances fit for the athlete in motion. Its round neckline is punctuated by navy blue, white and red detailing. Reflecting the club’s inner pride and history, “Paris” is knitted onto the back neck, and “Grandeur” and “Passion” are knitted onto the cuff of the sleeve.
The sides of the kit feature a blue stripe that runs the length of the shirt and yellow shorts. Expanding when the player is in motion, the stripes maximize ventilation.
Yellow socks, incorporating Nike Grip technology, complete the kit. They feature “Paris” on the front in contrasting blue and a distinctive line on the back of the calf.

Nike leverages sustainable innovation for its football kits through the use of recycled polyester, delivering unrivaled performance and lower environmental impact.
The kit’s shirt and shorts are constructed with recycled polyester fabric, which is made from recycled plastic bottles melted down to produce a fine yarn.
Each kit is made using approximately 16 recycled plastic bottles. Since 2010, Nike has diverted more than three billion plastic bottles from landfills into recycled polyester, enough to cover about 5,200 football pitches.
Nike Aeroswift Technology
These are Nike’s most technologically advanced kits ever, using new AeroSwift technology they are now 10% lighter, with 50% more stretch than last season’s kits. They use a new, textured high-performance yarn that wicks sweat from the skin 20% faster ever before, while drying 25% faster. The shirt and shorts are also constructed using a new knitting process that integrates single and double knit to enhance breathability, stretch and fit.
