Exclusive: Nike England 2018 World Cup Kit Design Leaked

The England kit for the 2018 World Cup will bring a much more traditional and bespoke look for the Three Lions to replace 2016's template look. Once again produced by Nike, the England 2018 home jersey will be released in March 2018, together with the away.

This image shows the base design and colors of the England 2018 home jersey.



Although the base colors of the England 2018 home kit are similar to those from two years ago, the design they are used in are about as much different as possible. Leaving behind the one-for-all templated approach of Euro 2016, the England 2018 World Cup shirt combines a white base with blue for logos and features a distinct Saint George's Cross-inspired knit on the front, a bit like the 2014 England away jersey.



The ice blue sleeves of the previous England kit are dropped - we expect them to be simply white or white with a subtle knit pattern. Template-wise, the England 2018 home jersey will be based on the latest iteration of the Nike Vapor template, which brings new and personalized knits and prints on the body and redesigned sleeves to top it off. Those will still have a raglan cut, but no further details beyond that are certain right now.



The next big change for the England 2018 World Cup home kit comes with shorts and socks, white are navy and white respectively. Thus, the odd white-white-red combination seen in France is dropped (and unlikely to ever return in the future). Red will be present on the England 2018 jersey in the form of player names and numbers.

The England 2018 home jersey is expected to be released in time for a friendly away against the Netherlands on March 23rd.



As for the alternative look, the England 2018 away kit will be red, with white shorts and red socks. We'll soon bring you more details on this jersey as well.
