The home kit delivers a rich, classically Portuguese aesthetic topped off with celebratory splashes of gold that symbolize their landmark European Championship victory.
“The collection is inspired by the success of two years ago,” says Pete Hoppins, Nike Football Apparel Senior Design Director. “That comes through in the home kit with this concept of modern royalty. From Luis Figo to Cristiano, Portugal have a number of iconic characters who have led and united the squad.”
“Ronaldo is a Portuguese hero,” explains Hoppins. “We wanted to tell the story of the modern king of football leading this new team.”
“With the home kit, we celebrated where we are with Portugal; the away is all about what’s next,” says Hoppins. “Portugal is a nation of discovery and that absolutely extends to their passion and attitude toward football.”
The Portugal home kit is available now on Nike.com, the away kit will be available April 26.
