With just a week to go until Christmas Day, soccer teams continue to offer all kinds of merchandise and clothing allusive for the holiday season.
However, for any fan who is really hell-bent on showing off their team colors during the holidays, the Christmas sweater is a must-have in winter outfit.
Fortunately, all the big clubs are more than happy to please their fans. Knitted garments with Christmas motifs have become an annual staple within the offer of its official virtual stores.
As usual, the various designs feature a variety of motifs, from the club’s crest subtly incorporated within a traditional pattern to the adoption of Santa Claus as a fan. One Premier League team even released a festive Hawaiian shirt, while players from an Italian club have played matches for several years wearing Christmas-themed uniforms.
Next, we present our review of some of the woven garments that are officially part of the proposal of various clubs of the major football leagues for 2021.
The Gunners they don’t have to release new designs every Christmas, because they have his ever popular “bruised banana” design, which helps them awaken nostalgia among fans of a certain age. At least this season they have their summer signing, Norwegian Martin Odegaard, as their role model.
We would like nothing more than to see Jose Mourinho being forced to model the Roma Christmas sweater, like he’s a grumpy old Grinch. Sadly, this Christmas is clearly not so magical.
The blaugrana colored reindeer sweater Barça is already pleasant in itself. However, it must be the bun on the hat and the “Fair Isle” patterned sleeves that bring the smile to front Jennifer Hermoso’s face.
The extravagant Bayern Christmas sweater released in 2020 featured a gnome, the silhouette of the Munich sky, 3D snowballs, as well as “grandstand roaring” sound and light effects. The offer for this year It has a much more traditional design, which must have been quite a relief for Jamal musiala, Carolin Simon and Sydney Lohmann.
Dortmund have opted for a pretty rudimentary looking snowy stadium scene. Although Emre can tries his best to sell the sweater, it appears to have been designed with a version of Microsoft Paint released around 1999.
We can hardly consider this sweater as worthy of the reigning champions of Europe, made worse by the kind of frown-inducing puns, similar to what we usually find inside cheaper Christmas cookies.
Like a fine tapestry, the Crystal Palace sweater features an impressively detailed scene, with Santa Claus and his oars soaring through the skies from Selhurst Park’s Holmesdale Grandstand.
The city of Milan is famous for its fashion, and the “checkerboard” sweater in Inter’s signature blue and black colors it is stylish enough to wear it all winter long. The Scudetto the center of the shield, which serves as a reminder of their recent Serie A title, is quite a nice touch.
Juve has also chosen by design “chessboard”, although his has a strange nod to the periodic table that reminds us of the series “Breaking Bad”, which did not exactly have a Christmas plot.
Even if hawaiian shirts They are not very appropriate for the Yorkshire weather into December, we must commend Leeds for presenting a Christmas range with a unique angle. Mele Kalikimaka!
Liverpool present us the same sweater released last year, with the club’s crest and motto molded into the shape of a Christmas tree, accompanied by a slight fall of snowflakes.
After resisting the temptation to imitate the characteristic gray knitwear of DT Pep Guardiola, the City Christmas sweater is
United made a bold attempt, stating that Santa Claus is one of his followers. However, we won’t believe it until Santa Claus has his own statue outside Old Trafford.
The festive sweater of the CanariesWith its traditional bright green and yellow colors, it is much more elegant than it appears in theory. Josh Sargent seems happy to be fulfilling his modeling duties.
The NYCFC, recently crowned in the MLS Cup, presents us a very ornate design. Snowflakes, candy canes and giant club badges appear to be fighting for space within the garment’s pattern.
PSG presented two very different options for fans looking for a festive sweater in the club’s colors. Yes OK the design of “Barrista Snowman” will make you put aside the Christmas turkey, the Ligue 1 club also produced a genuinely chic model with tartan hues. As if that weren’t enough, it also glows in the dark.
The White House really put it all into this design. A gigantic club crest is surrounded by a pattern with all kinds of elements. The sweater even wishes a “White Christmas” to whoever wears it.
Southampton went a step further than Manchester United, stating that Santa Claus is a celebrated fan of his club. The Saints awarded him a number He could play with at St Mary’s Stadium.
Think for a moment. If former coach Nuno Espirito Santo had stayed a little longer, perhaps his shiny beard would have adorned Tottenham’s festive sweater for this Christmas.
We should give an honorable mention to US Cremonese, because the Italian club has a habit of going the extra mile when it comes to festive wear.
Instead of throwing a Christmas sweater, the Serie B team presented a uniform with festive jersey motif, which they wore during last week’s 3-2 win over Crotone.
The club’s limited-edition Christmas kit for 2021 features a “woven” Nordic pattern, with the respective goalkeeper jacket in green.
This is the fifth year in a row that Cremonese has launched a special Christmas shirt. The proceeds from the sales of replica jerseys go to charitable causes.
