If in 1904, the French team made its first official match against Belgium, it was not until 1919 and the creation of the French Football Federation that the French wore a blue jersey as their main and official outfit. More than a century after its birth, the blue tunic has undergone many transformations. Today, France represents one of the most important markets for equipment manufacturers who, through the national team, seek to reach a very wide audience. But this is nothing new. For several decades, the Blue jersey has been used to leaving stadium locker rooms to appear in the street. A true fashion accessory, it often marks its era. Will the 2022 edition of the France team jersey become as legendary as that of 1984, 1998 or even 2018?

1984, first legendary jersey

First, we must note a certain loyalty between the brands and the French team. After Le Coq Sportif, from 1966 to 1971, Adidas maintained a beautiful and long adventure with the Blues. And certain meetings from 1972 to 2010, marked by the team’s performance, are now irremediably associated with the outfit worn that year. How not to think in the first place of 1984? In this final won against Spain (2-0) on the lawn of the Parc des Princes. To these two goals scored by Michel Platini and Bruno Bellone. To this French team of Manuel Amoros, Luis Fernandez, Joël Bats, Alain Giresse, Bernard Lacombe… To this very first Blue jersey associated with an international trophy, that of the European Cup.

1998, 2002, 2018… Legendary jerseys

As a sign of fate, the “reissue” of this same tunic in 1998 in turn enters into legend. Kissed and exposed to the Stade France public by Zinédine Zidane during his second goal against Brazil, it will become a must have for supporters and will even be worn by women. Two years later, the brand with the three stripes which added the first star to it signs a new historic jersey. That of victory Didier Deschamps and its partners against Italy in the final of the Euro. Since 2011, Nike has accompanied the Blues in their various outings. After the final of the European Championship lost in 2016 against Portugal, the Blues return to the roof of the world in 2018 during the World Cup organized in Russia. Four years later, French supporters dream of seeing Kylian Mbappé and his partners repeat the feat in Qatar. Will the France team’s 2023 jersey display a third star?
