Among many other information, Yokohama F Marinos said that the new Adidas 2020 Special-Edition jersey would fit differently to the regular kit, and that fans would therefore thinking about getting one Size up for a more leisured fit.

What Yokohama F Marinos did is nothing extraordinary for Japanese teams, who are well-known for releasing more detailed info than globes from other countries of the world. We take a look at what most Japanese clubs provide together with the kit launch.

When releasing the new 2020 SE kit, Yokohama F Marinos announced that there are exactly 2,000 kits available to order for members and season ticket holders (with three different groups having different dates from when they can pre-order). 500 shirts are available for all others from another date (June 14).

Sometimes it also gets a bit over-complicated. In example, Yokohama F Marinos have different prices for shirt prints depending on the number of letters and figures.

Expected Shipping Times For Jersey:

The Japanese teams also very specifically say when the kit is expected to arrive (It may be delivered on weekdays...)

Full Squad List With Confirmed Numbers & Names On Shirt:

Together with the kit release, the teams also publish a squad list with all confirmed numbers and actual shirt names of players.

Often, the first fans to order the kit are also getting some nice little extras.
