Nike Consider Keeping Home Kits for 2 Seasons

Nike could make an important change for the football kit industry, info from PSG kit insiders @lasource75006 suggests.

Nike "Are Seriously Considering Offering a Home Kit For Two Years"

Nike's nine elite teams get a new bespoke home kit every season, just as almost all teams in football currently.

Nike "are seriously considering offering a home jersey for several clubs including PSG, which would be worn for 2 years", according to @lasource75006.

Teams had been keeping their home kits for several years until the 1990s/early 2000s

It has been common for football teams to keep their jerseys for several years until the 1990s. Since then, teams started to release three new kits every year. Nike were surely a trendsetter of yearly kit releases back then.

There would be several advantages if teams would release no new home kit every year, and of course, also disadvantages.

It would be a good step from an ecological point of view

Advantages include the ecological point of view as well as the wallet of fans. Disadvantages include that teams might wear an unpopular home kit for two years and that brands/teams could make less money.

Recently, several smaller teams announced that they will carry over kits for the next season, including Brentford and Hull City.

US teams change uniforms much less often

In the US, sports teams change the design of their jerseys as well but not nearly as regular as it is in soccer. For example, most NFL teams keep their uniforms for several years.

Would you like teams to keep their home kit for more than just a year? Comment below.
