Update: The France centenary shirt is now available to buy in the USA.
Nike revealed a special-edition France jersey to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the French Football Federation, which was founded in 1919. The kit will be worn against Iceland on Monday.
There will be less 10,000 units of the long-sleeve replica and authentic versions released this week, possibly on March 25 2019.
"The Team de France is the most beautiful thing that happened to me in my career," said Didier Deschamps, "there is nothing above me, from my first to my last selection, I've always considered it was a privilege to represent his country and it is still true today, you can play in the biggest clubs and win many titles, the World Cup and the Euro are the most important competitions ."
France 1919-2019 Centenary Kit
This is the France 2019 Centenary jersey.
The France 2019 Centenary shirt uses a lighter shade of blue, like the Euro 2016 kit. On top of that, Nike applied its logo in a very subtle manner, creating a classier look.
An overall clean and traditional look, the France 2019 Centenary kit has a polo collar with trim in the colors of the flag as well as a special 100 Year logo. Two stars sit above said logo to commemorate France's two World Cup titles, 1998 and 2018.
White shorts and red socks complete the kit.
The France 1919-2019 Centenary shirt will only be available as long sleeve, another nod to its retro inspiration. Both authentic and replica will be available from March 24 (It has not been sold on Nike.com and other websites yet). Less than 10,000 units will be put up for sale.
