Mexico’s 2020 Home Kit Leaks And It’s Bringing The Pink

Of course, we’re halfway through 2020 and Mexico’s national plans for the year — including the Nations League Finals, Men’s Olympic Qualifying Championship and Kirin Challenge Cup — have all been pushed back to 2021.

The Jerseys That Europe’s Biggest Clubs Will Be Wearing Come 2020-21

When your internal calendar is largely synced with the footballing one, it’s difficult to wrap your head around the fact that we’re now approaching mid-June. In the fantasy world before COVID-19, we’d see Euro 2020 begin on Friday; in the actual COVID-19 world, we’ll see the Premier League return Wednesday with a pair of fixtures that were originally scheduled for March 11.

Adidas Euro 2020 Cleats Launch, Showing Us What Could Have Been

Hopefully this isn’t earth-shattering news for you, but Euro 2020 has been delayed by a year due to the pandemic. But the show — from a merchandising standpoint — must go on. Adidas can’t hide all this gear inside a bushel basket for the next 12 months.

As the official supplier for the European Championship, the German sportswear giant has been slowly unveiling its campaign over the last year. We got our first major idea of the company’s theme back in November with the unveiling of the “UNIFORIA” ball. 

Quarantine Fits: The Best Vintage Soccer Jerseys To Do Nothing In

WARNING: Classic Football Shirts is really fun to browse but you will go broke. 

Before Puma decided that when it came to Per Mertesacker’s body, nothing should be left to the imagination, jerseys were essentially built for quarantine. Forsaking the modern urban fit for that of a parachute, these were shirts that you could grow into for years and years and years — perfect for the figure you’ve achieved over the last two months.  

You Don’t Even Have To Play Keeper To Want These New Adidas Manuel Neuer Gloves

It’s kind of strange to think that Manuel Neuer will be turning 34 at the end of March. The Bayern Munich and Germany No. 1 is synonymous with what’s hip and youthful due to his revolutionary work in the goalkeeper role, but he’s now something of a godfather to players who have carried on his tradition, like Alisson, Marc-André ter Stegen and Ederson. 

As Mario Puzo wrote, the world is so hard that a man must have two fathers to look after him, and that’s why we have godfathers — and no godfather has protected his people better than Don Neuer.

Throwback Thursday: The Incredible 2002 Adidas Predator Mania Cleats

The adidas Predator Manias were by far the greatest cleats the 2000s had ever seen. These cleats were years ahead of their time. This was back when the new millennium was still trying to find its way, there was this whole Internet thing, nobody knew what it really was, we were all a bunch of tadpoles aimlessly wandering around in our own way.

Not adidas. Not these cleats. They just … they slapped different. As a cool 12-year-old, I was a die-hard Nike kid but damn did I trade in my Tiempos for Predator Manias real fast.

Bayern Munich Celebrates 120th Anniversary With Beautiful Retro Kit

On Thursday, Feb. 27, FC Bayern Munich celebrates its 120th anniversary. It was on that date back in 1900 that photographer Franz John and 11 other men decided to found the club before playing their first competitive match that spring, defeating FC Nordstern 15-0.

New Champions League Ball Is The Best One Yet

It is the one item a game can’t be played without: a ball. Unless you're named Michy Batshuayi that is. Jokes aside the latest installment of Champions League knockout football is upon us and with that comes the new Champions League ball.
