The Iconic Yellow & Blue Sweden Home Shirt
Although yet to be crowned champions in a major tournament Sweden have still had great success in their World Cup and Euro runs. The greatest success happened when the nation played host, as the sea of yellow and blue Sweden jerseys emerged from the stands, as well as the roar that echoed around the stadiums by the team’s loyal fans. With thanks to the huge support of the home crowd Sweden did in fact achieve a second-place spot in the World Cup in 1958, as well as reaching the semi-finals in the European champions in 1992!

After taking over long-term suppliers Umbro, Adidas has done an outstanding job in the production of recent kits during their 5-year deal, but will the Swedish 2018 home shirt be the last one we see with the Adidas logo? Still yet to be announced, Adidas and the Sweden Football Association are yet to confirm any kit deals.
