The Sweden national soccer team played their first official International in 1908 beating Norway 11-3. The Sweden home football shirt made it’s debut World Cup appearance in 1934 and has made relatively frequent appearances ever since, with the team qualifying for 11 World Cup tournaments to date. In 1958 when Sweden played host to the biggest soccer event the team finished in 2nd place losing 5-2 against Brazil in the final, this remains their highest placing.
There is a similar story in the country’s European Championship history. The jersey debuted in 1992 when they qualified as the host nation. Finishing third after losing 2-3 to Germany in the semi-finals this remains their best performance in the Euro’s. Since 2000 Sweden has qualified consistently for every subsequent European Championship, but the shirts have rarely featured beyond the Group Stages.
Adidas AreThe Manufacturers Of The Sweden Jerseys
Since 1970 the Sweden soccer strip has been manufactured by one of two well-known sportswear manufacturers. Umbro made the Swedish kit from 1970-74. From 1974 - 2003 the Swedish Football Association enjoyed a long and stable partnership with German company Adidas. However, it was back to Umbro in 2003 for the following ten years. In 2013 a new agreement was signed, which would see the infamous Adidas stripes return to the Sweden soccer jerseys. The current deal runs for six years, which will see Adidas manufacturing the strip until at least 2019, and certainly through the upcoming 2018 Cup competition.
The Sweden home shirt is always yellow in colour to reflect the yellow cross on the country’s flag. The yellow base is usually accented with blue highlights to truly reflect the country, their flag and heritage. With Adidas at the helm of design the Sweden soccer jerseys is often innovative and exciting whilst remaining true to the heart of football in Sweden.
This is more obviously reflected in the styling of the away shirts, which are generally bright blue in colour to coordinate with the blue background of the Swedish flag. Occasionally a white Sweden away shirt has been launched, but more recently Adidas has opted for bolder navy blue styling featuring designs that include a yellow cross, and a unique colour block design for 2016/17 that has proven popular with fans.
Since 2012 the purpose built Friends Arena, in Stockholm, has been the home stadium for the national soccer team. The ground holds 50,653 football fans during matches, and hosted the 2013 UEFA Women’s Euro final. Swedish football fans were voted to be the best during the 2006 World Cup due to their friendly nature and passion for the game. On match days the Friends Arena is packed with fans sporting the Sweden shirt and accessories as stars including Zlatan Ibrahimovic showcase their talent.
In recent years the eye-catching form of Ibrahimovic has boosted interest in the squad. He is Sweden’s top goal-scorer of all time and with stints at some of Europe’s most prestigious clubs including his most recent posting with Manchester United there is little wonder that all eyes fall on him whenever he steps out in a home jersey.
