New Premier League And Champions League Balls Make Us Desperate For Spring

Looking for a new ball after this hellish cold snap eventually gives way to springtime? Look no further because both Nike (2020-21 Premier League) and adidas (2021 Champions League Final) have released new balls celebrating the business end of their respective competitions.

To celebrate the final third of the 2020-21 Premier League, Nike has released its third ball of the campaign. As darkness gives way to light and frost yields to regrowth, so to is the Premier League’s yellow Hi-Viz ball giving way to the latest Nike Flight creation.

When It’s Time To Go Outside Again, Consider Wearing The New América Third Jersey

Liga MX returned this past weekend with Club América securing all three points thanks to Sebastián Córdova’s dramatic winner against Atlético San Luis. After an unkind finish to 2020 — including defeats to Chivas in the Apertura quarterfinals and LAFC in the CONCACAF Champions League semifinals — América is looking to rejuvenate itself through new manager Santiago Solari.

PUMA Releases The FUTURE Z 1.1 Boot, Exclusive To Neymar Jr.

Back in August, Neymar Jr. ended a 15-year relationship with Nike to sign a new deal with PUMA that reportedly earns him more than $30 million per year. We saw the first fruits of this relationship back in October with the release of Neymar’s first Puma fashion collection, and a new PUMA KING Platinum boot that featured the PSG forward’s logo subtly forming the legendary Formstrip

Borussia Dortmund Releases SpongeBob SquarePants Fashion Collaboration

Borussia Dortmund and SpongeBob SquarePants have collaborated on a lifestyle capsule that includes two hoodies and two T-shirts. Why? 

But my guess is because both are yellow, Gio Reyna is SpongeBob, Erling Haaland is Patrick, Marco Reus is “MY LEG!” and Robert Lewandowski is Gary.

Do You Want Nike Phantoms With Scorpions On Them? Of Course You Do

It’s been 18 years since Nike’s legendary “Secret Tournament” advert that coincided with the brand’s approach to the 2002 FIFA World Cup. Directed by Monty Python member Terry Gilliam with a budget of around $100 million, the commercial featured “referee” Eric Cantona and 24 superstars of the game (Thierry Henry, Francesco Totti, Ronaldo, Ronaldinho, Luís Figo, Patrick Vieira, Edgar Davids, etc.) and Junkie XL’s new remix of Elvis Presley’s “A Little Less Conversation”. 

Pharrell Designed Some Adidas Kits And They Are Fucking Gorgeous

There are few songs in the history of music that I hate more than “Happy” by Pharrell Williams. For whatever reason, it just grates on me like 10,000 nails on 10,000 chalkboards. But I’m willing to completely forgive the American singer/songwriter based entirely on these incredible new Pharrell soccer jerseys he created with adidas and Humanrace FC.

PUMA Releases New Home And Away Jerseys For African Nations

After five Africa Cup of Nations tournaments in eight years, the COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to wait an unreasonably long time for the next AFCON competition. 

Algeria lifted the title in 2019 with Riyad Mahrez, Ismaël Bennacer and Raïs M'Bolhi shining for the Desert Foxes, but the follow-up tournament in Cameroon — originally slated for June and July of 2021 — has since been pushed back to January of 2022. 

Chile’s 2021 Copa América Jersey Is An Instant Classic

With the 2021 Copa América approaching (it's September?), we can finally start to dream about the return of international play with its accompanying displays of passion, history and fantasy. 

Few sides stir the imagination like two-time Copa winner Chile, with stalwarts like Alexis Sánchez, Arturo Vidal, Gary Medel and Eduardo Vargas encapsulating an approach that can kill you in all manner of ways — just ask Messi. 

Kylian Mbappé’s Pink Champions League Final Boots Will Pay Homage To A Former Bayern Great

Kylian Mbappé and PSG will take part in their first Champions League final on Sunday, a highly anticipated clash with Bayern Munich. The two teams have by far been the best in Europe this season, with one loss between them in the entire competition. The two teams have plenty in common, from their connections to Barcelona’s failures to their shared domestic hegemony.
