Nike Launch England 20/21 Home And Away Kits

Feeding off the growing harmony between an exciting young squad and a passionate fanbase fully mobilised behind the team, Nike have unveiled the new England home and away shirts for the 2020 collection.

Capturing the spirit of the modern England team, representative of all people, the 2020 Nike collection uses a bespoke graphic print, which depicts a ‘community of lions’ – players and fans together, united in sharing a dream. The print makes a subtle impression on an otherwise classic England home design, but then takes centre stage in a vibrant blue away inspired by vintage Three Lions kits reminiscent of the 1990s.

England’s minimalist white home shirt features a central crest and Nike Swoosh with a dark blue crew neck and side stripes. The symmetry of the design will be further bolstered by centralised squad numbers, while both the collar and the stripes are embossed with the distinctive ‘community of lions’ graphic.

England’s away, meanwhile, is presented in head-to-toe blue, with both the shirt and shorts emphasising togetherness through a soulful all-over graphic. The shirt features another nod to ‘90s jersey culture with a fold-down collar, fastened by a button inscribed with the words: ‘We are Lions/We are England’. The jersey is enlivened by bright red side stripes, a Swoosh and crest. The names and numbers on both home and away will be printed in an exclusive font inspired by the Three Lions’ identity.

England’s wider collection continues the theme of togetherness and the use of exclusive graphics. The team’s pre-match jersey comes in a vivid red, which is adorned by another all-over ‘90s inspired illustration. The ‘community of lions’ print returns on a crew neck collar, while a full colour crest appears on the chest. 

There is a feel-good factor surrounding the England team and we wanted to capture all that vibrancy and try some new things,” says Scott Munson, VP, Nike Football Apparel. “Their collection balances a classic home identity with an adventurous, eye-catching away kit.

The 20/21 Nike England Home and Away kits will be available at from 4 September.
