The UCL 2018/19 season will not be just about the action but also about style.
On Tuesday, September 18, the group stage of the Champions League starts and many fans are waiting for this not just because of the games but also for the fact that the best clubs in Europe will showcase their new kits.
NAIJ.com have compiled a list of the most unusual of them. Here are the top 7 best football kits among the participants this season.
1. Manchester United, Adidas
Red Devil’s new Adidas shirt pays tribute to local newspaper The Football Pink. It was created by the Manchester Evening News and went out on Saturday afternoons until its closure in 2007.
"Its legacy endures and this season The Pink rides again," said the front page of United Review. "Not just in the hearts and minds of the fans, but on the backs of their heroes too."
2. PSG, Air Jordan
The French giants are the first football team to be sponsored by Jordan. This kit will be used only in UEFA Champions League and has to be the jersey that will differentiate the club among the rest.
“Jordan Brand and Paris Saint-Germain share a distinct position in sport and style, so to partner with the club is a natural fit,” says Michael Jordan. The club will debut its Jordan Brand kit on the first round of Champions League group stage during the game with Liverpool.
3. Liverpool, New Balance
Speaking of Liverpool, the Reds have opted for a grey strip modelled on the club's away colours from the Championship-winning 1989/90 campaign.
The jersey has racing red detail on the shoulder panels, a red crest and NB logo, as well as a crew neck collar with insert.
4. Juventus, Adidas
Juventus 2018/19 third jersey combines a dark base with fluo yellow trim. It's made from recycled ocean waste.
“Combining modernity in look with cutting-edge technology, the third jersey is far more than something simply worn on the pitch. Made from a 100% recycled polyester interlock material that incorporates Ocean Plastic by Parley, the new third kit fuses performance technology with eco-innovative design.”
5. Monaco, Nike
The Monaco 2018/19 away jersey uses the Nike Vapor design featuring a modern v-neck with a single buttoned placket. The shirt is dark green with a vertical flash of the red from ASM’s crest on its outside rear neck area.
Another French team in the top deserves its place thanks to a non-standard solution with color.
