Another kit for next year’s Confederations Cup hits the shelves! After recently launching their new home kit, the Deutscher Fussball Bund – Germany’s Football Association – and technical partner, adidas, unveiled Germany’s pre-match shirts. It’s the same design template as the Spanish are using.
Germany 2017 Confederations Cup Pre-match Kit
This is the Germany 2017 Confederations Cup Pre-match kit:
The shirt’s white base colour features black trim while a faded black graphic pattern covers the chest and shoulders of the front.
With black cuffs and v-neck collar, it is reminiscent of the 1960s and early 70s West Germany shirts. Consequently, it is sure to be popular with supporters when it goes on sale.
Finally, the back of the short and lower two-thirds are a clean white design.
Germany take part in the Confederations Cup as reigning World Champions. They face:
- hosts Russia,
- European champions Portugal,
- Copa America winners Chile,
- AFC Asian Cup winners Australia,
- CONCACAF Gold Cup champions Mexico, and,
- OFC Nations Cup winners New Zealand.
The winners of next winter’s Africa Cup of Nations join the seven other nations in the tournament in Russia.
Recent comments attributed to FIFA president Gianni Infantino suggest this is the last Confederations Cup. FIFA may create a club World Cup to be held in its place. It seems like a move to appease clubs over the international calendar and has yet to be finalised.
The FIFA General Council may prove the immovable object that stops the idea in its’ tracks due to the national FAs self-interests.
