Nike Reveal Portugal World Cup Home Kit

New strip celebrates Portuguese Football Federation's centenary.

Nike continue to lay down their World Cup cards with the reveal of the new Portugal home kit to celebrate the Portuguese Football Federation’s centenary. Nike have combined the best in performance innovation with powerful national symbols and design details for Ronaldo's boys to hit Brazil in.

The new Portugal home jersey boasts a tonal design of dark red and bright red stripes on the top half and sleeves. The varying sized stripes create an energizing graphic that provides a sense of speed and exhilaration. The jersey features a dark red V-neck collar and cuffs with green trim. On either side of the Portuguese Football Federation’s crest are the years 1914 and 2014 to commemorate their centenary.

Inside the back of the neck is a red and green pennant tab featuring an Armillary Sphere to herald Portugal’s seafaring history. The Armillary Sphere is a navigation tool that famous Portuguese explorers used to discover the world. It has stood as a national symbol for more than 500 years and serves as the background for the Portuguese shield on the national flag.
