Mitre Football Kits - For the Beautiful Game

Mitre are famous for footballs, but did you know they make football kit too?  The beautiful game is played at many levels, from the professional stadiums to the parks that are filled with boys, girls, men and women every weekend, and Mitre has a great range of football team kit available to all teams to be kitted out in comfort and style.

Mitre football team kit has even graced the Premier League in England. During the early to mid-1990's, one of the top teams in England was Norwich City.  After a 3rd place finish in 1992/93, the Canaries had a memorable run to the 3rd Round of the UEFA Cup, knocking out Bayern Munich in the 2nd Round thanks to goals from Jeremy Goss and Mark Bowen.  Boasting a side with top talent like Chris Sutton and Ruel Fox, the Norfolk side had the unusual distinction of wearing the same kit, but made by two different manufacturers, during the 1993/94 season.  Originally branded as Ribero, Mitre took over the branding of a kit that could best be described as a yellow shirt attacked with green and white paint flecks!

Fusion is a current Mitre football team kit jersey that takes an abstract approach to kit design, with a bold stripe print on the front of the jersey.  This jersey could be the one for your team to wear if you want a twist on a traditional stripe jersey and want to cause headaches for the opposition's goalie.

If Fusion is maybe too unusual for your tastes, but you wear striped football jerseys, then the Optimize could be the answer.  A classic stripe football shirt design with a modern collar, the Optimize comes in a great range of colours for junior and adult football teams.  The Scarlet/White combination is actually the strip worn by EFL League Two side Accrington Stanley in the 2016/17 season, while clubs like Huddersfield Town and Notts County have worn Mitre striped football kits in the past.

Another club to don the Mitre brand in previous years was Burnley.  The Lancashire side wore the Delta in the mid-90s with a Claret/Sky combination that bolstered Delta signs (Mitre's brand logo) in the pattern.  The Delta is still an inspiration logo on Mitre's kit, training wear and footballs, and can be seen on the new Charge S/S or Charge L/S jersey as well as the impressive and affordable Delta training wear line.

If Claret/Sky is your club's favourite colour, then a great Mitre football jersey to go for is the Angular which features mesh ventilation to keep players cool as they play.  5 other colours are available in the Angular Jersey.

One of the most famous football kit designs is a contrast colour sleeve style, made famous by the likes of Arsenal and Hibernian.  Between 1996 and 1998 Hibs wore the Mitre brand in the Scottish Premier League.  The Edinburgh side were wearing Mitre the day Henrik Larsson made his debut for Celtic and with his first touch in Scottish football, gave away the ball to Chic Charnley who fired the winning goal in for the Hibees. Even if you aren't a fan of the Leith based team, but like the style of kit, then Mitre has exactly what you need.  Step forward Cabrio!  Featuring modern detailing and Mitre's innovative ProFlow technology in the jersey's fabric, the Cabrio is popular with teams that want their side to play like Arsenal.  The last Mitre kit worn by 1981 UEFA Cup winners Ipswich Town in 2013/14 inspired the Cabrio with the white sleeves with blue body combination.

One of the newest kits to Mitre's range is the Charge, available in both short sleeve and long sleeved styles.  The Charge has a colour pallet of 13 choices including a Royal/Yellow, Sky/Navy and Amber/Black.  Featuring neat Delta logo details on the shoulders and side panels of the jersey, this football shirt offers great wear and value from just £8.44 a top.  The Charge also features ProFlow in the fabric which allows moisture to be wicked away from the inside of the shirt, keeping you cool and dry as you play.

Direct Soccer fact of the day!  Scottish side Clydebank once wore Mitre kit in the 1990's, and between 1995 and 1997 their kit was sponsored by famous British pop band Wet Wet Wet.  Obviously they were looking to spend some of the royalties from their Love Is All Around single that dominated the charts in 1994!
