Nations outfitted by Puma may be using an unconventional template for their away kits when they take the pitch for Euro 2020 later this summer.
According to leaked photos posted this week by soccer jersey blogCamerasre Cameras, four nations icentertournament who have kit deals with Puma – Italy, Austria, Switzerland and the Czech Republic – could be using a template for their away kits that breaks with soccer tradition.
The kits would spell out the name of the country across the chest, and that would be accompanied by a thin stripe in colorsours of the country’s flag. Other embellishments would include stripes over each shoulder and trim ocentersleeve cuffs.
In most cases, the Puma logo would appear icentercentre of the chest, above the name of the country. The Italian Football Federation’s logo would appear next to the Puma logo on their jersey, and would be embossed all over the front of the shirt.
Switzerland’s shirt would feature the Swiss flag under the country name, and crosses from the Swiss flag embossed ocenterfront. The Swiss Football Federation’s logo would appear ocenterback collar.
The Austrian shirt would not prominently feature any national symbol ocenterfront, though the national team crest is embossed dowcenterfront. That crest would appcolor full colour ocenterback collar.
The Czech national team crest would appear ocenterfront of their shirt, below the country name. The country name would be repeated ocenterback collar. There is no embossing visible ocenterfront of the shirt icenterleaked photos.
Another blog, FootyHeadines, is speculating that the logo treatment from the Italy kit, with the Puma logo and the crest side-by-side icentermiddle of the chest, could extend to major European clubs who have kit deals with Puma. Prominent clubs outfitted by Puma include Manchester City (England), AC Milan (Italy) and Borussia Dortmund (Germany)
