Adidas has unveiled a batch of kits that will be proudly worn by some of the competing national teams when the UEFA Women’s European Championship kicks off in England in July.
With less than 100 days until the competition begins, Belgium, Germany, Northern Ireland, Spain and Sweden have all been provided with brand new uniforms for the tournament.
More than half of the 700,000 available match tickets have already been sold, which means that EM 2022 has broken the previous sales record (240,000) set five years ago at EM 2017. So it is absolutely essential that these teams look as sharp as possible when they take the step towards the plan this summer.
The new home jerseys for Euro 2022 follow the tradition by wearing the colors of the national flags, while the corresponding away jerseys are all inspired by well-known patterns taken from previously prominent kits in each team’s back catalog.
The overall quality of the design over the entire shirt is impressively high, which makes it difficult for those who do not have a vested interest in a particular team to choose a favorite.

The Red Flames will not wear red at all at the 2022 European Championships, with the women’s team’s first ever tailored home kit ever avoiding the country’s usual fiery hue in favor of a sneaky black aesthetic, adorned with simple red-yellow details.
A color that is usually reserved for Belgium’s third, alternative and goalkeeper stand, the away jersey is a mottled pale yellow design with nice black details that bear the hallmarks of the alternative jersey that the men’s national team wore in 2018.
Germany rarely put their foot down when it comes to stylish national team uniforms without effort, and their latest efforts are no exception. At home, the sweater is predominantly smooth and white with the black block on Federal flag represented by the base color of the upholstery and the red-yellow blocks used to garland the collar and cuffs.
The away address is a familiar bottle green shade that has been used as an alternative color for Germany’s national team since the 1950s. A fresh twist to an established look has been created with the subtle stripes created by a tonal abstract print.
Northern Ireland has been decorated with a classic design that goes back to the famous green jerseys worn by men’s national side in the 1980s – with the thick, two-tone V-neck collar in particular a reference to the 1986 World Cup strip. The first Northern Ireland set designed exclusively for the older women’s team, the 2022 vintage also has a centrally adapted brand and cut stripes on the sleeves that also give the shirt a comfortable retro feel.
Cleaned in the bright primary colors Rojigualda national flag, Spain’s EC 2022 home jersey looks to be inspired by the geometric jerseys from the mid-1990s and early 2000s, all fused with the streamlined redesign of the RFEF weapon that was first unveiled last year.
The away shirt is on the same template as Germany’s, but this time it is in a strikingly pale metallic blue.
Although there are no prizes to guess that Sweden will play in yellow and blue at the European Championships 2022, there are a number of subtle details on the new home jersey that will help it stand out – especially the centrally targeted brand and the yellow yarn embroidery around the collar.
The kit also contains special instructions on how opposing teams can try to beat Sweden with the help of a 34-sided tactical base (yes, 34!) Inserted in the jersey that includes crashes and performance analysis.
Written by the team’s computer specialist Anders Eriksson, the brochure – entitled “How to beat Sweden” – is part of the inner label and covers everything from attacking and defensive formations to individual player assessments and tips.

The highest ranked European side is obviously very confident of marching in honor of the European Championships 2022 and can also boast a very nice and dark dark blue away shirt.
