Why would Team GB need an away kit again?

Because even though they are the host nation, they might be designated the visiting team in a particular match. I recall the US basketball team wearing both white and colored uniforms in both the Los Angeles and Atlanta Olympics.

That's daft how can you visit your own home. Partly why no one cares about footy at the Olympics.

well as much as I agree the Olympic football isn't much to be excited about, this sort of thing happens in the World Cup and Continental Championships too. I remember USA, France, S Korea and S Africa all wearing away strips at times, even though they were the host nation of those respective W/Cups. (pretty sure Germany didn't in 06)

All the above are wrong. Correct answer on the card is:
"To make money for adidas."

Exactly. I never understand why people get upset about teams putting out additional kits or what not. They are not forcing you to buy this kit. People really are morons.

I think it's just that people get upset about designers producing awful kits to represent their clubs and expect to make money off of terrible work, which somehow successfully occurs over and over again.

You don't have to buy it!! This argument, which gets dragged out at every new kit launch, holds no weight. No one is forcing the public to buy it or any kit. And of course they need an away kit. Blue is hardly a rare colour in the world of football kits. Saying that, I do believe the commemorative fans shirt is a waste of time, as I can't see fans shelling out for that and the official one, given it only has a lifespan of a month.

Right firstly, horrible shirt and to answer some brainless people's questions 1. We need an away kit because every team in football does incase of a thing called 'kit clashing' where the team we could play would be wearing identical colours and 2. Umbro don't make these kits as team GB have a contract deal with Adidas. It's not an England shirt pal it's a great britain shirt so Adidas are making it and let's face it Adidas are better anyway. Bottom line, both home and away shirts are horrible I'll stick to my fan version which at least has a full union jack on it and being Scottish I must say I am very proud to be considered part of Great Britain

A team playing at home never changes its home kit because of 'kit clashes'. It's the visiting team that changes the kit. You don't visit your own home.

They have away kits made for when they play away in other non World Cup games. Team GB will never play outside of the GB

yes but in a tournament you could be drawn as the away team, for example say we get drawn as France vs Team GB, we are the "visiting side" and will wear the change strip.

If a remember 2 weeks ago Barcelona playin at Sam Siro in wearing home kit while ac Milan wore away kit so there is no rules about wot strip u have to wear

I won't patronize you all by telling you what tune to sing this to:

"God Save our bland-y kit,
It makes us look like s h i t,
Don't buy this kit,

Worn only against the Greeks,
It still costs you some 40 sheets,
Stella's designs just make me weep,
Don't buy this kit ..."

*Apologies for using the term 'bland-y' ...

The fan shirt is the biggest waste of money ever. It's a decent enough design, but it'll never get worn on the pitch, which just means that it's a super expensive t-shirt.

Let's face it, buying it or not, it's really bland. Reminds me of an envelope. Wish I could post it to Stella McCartney and write "only because your dad was a beatle and is incredible rich!!" followed by "I dare you to design some stuff in secret and market it with a pretend name so no one knows you, then see how well recieved your designs are. Go on, dare you!"
The truth hurts doesn't it Stella?

Better than that navy blue first choice abomination, although it still needs the three stripes down the sleeve to make it look "complete", how an Adidas kit should look.

IIRC, the Olympics have adopted a rule that uniforms can only have one manufacturers logo on them, and that three stripes of the same color would constitute a second Adidas logo.

This rule is similar to what the NCAA has; Adidas gets around it by having the sleeve stripes in two colors.

Football first appeared at the 1908 London Olympics with club side Upton Park (no connection with West Ham) representing and winning gold for Great Britain wearing essentially the England kit with a Union Jack crest. This reflected the English FA’s control of the team and the GB athletics team’s colours. The combination was worn for all Olympics the GB qualified for, the last being 1960.

Outside the Olympics Great Britain fielded a team in the 1947 so called ‘Match of the Century’ to celebrate the Home Nations rejoining FIFA, playing a Rest of Europe team and running out in navy blue as they were playing in Scotland. When in 1955 a representative British XI played a Europe XI to celebrate the Irish FA’s 75th anniversary, the game was played at Windsor Park with the team again wearing the host nations home colours of green.

This should be the home shirt! As well as every other Olympic outfit the GB team are wearing should be white.

Stella McCartney obviously has no clue about traditional GB Olympic attire.

White shirt/vest with red/blue trim.

Blue or white shorts

How difficult was that?!

I still don't like the design, despite waiting for these olympic kits for years (commemorative, probably won't happen again, etc) but there are a few details that just confuse me.

Firstly, is that really the best they could manage with the badge? It's utterly awful, it looks like it belongs to a youth side - no offense.

Why does the Union Flag taper off in the middle? Why is it printed in such a large size? On the home kit, it's going to look stupid with a number printed on it.

Then there are the sleeves, the collar, the dumb seams...

What a missed opportunity.

Why is everyone moaning about why team GB need to wear an away kit.
It’s all about the designated home team and away team, no matter if there the host nation or not, remember 1966, England were the host nation and won the final in there iconic red away kit.

It's probably against OCC rules, but it would have been a nice way to apease the Celtic fringes if a Scottish Lion and a Welsh Dragon could have been added somewhere on the kit since the Union Jack is viewed predominantly as an English symbol. I know our associations are against team GB, but I'll be very interested in watching their progress.

If these shirts are the new ones, then what was the point in releasing the ones that they did before that were royal blue and the other one was red. They were released in october costing £35. We are now told that this is the real one and it will cost £40.

As an American (my team sadly didn't qualify for the Olympics--what's new?), I really enjoy both of these shirts. As a football fan in general, especially the Premier League, I find myself rooting for England a lot when the US isn't playing. that being said, I'm looking forward to rooting for Team GB this year and will probably buy this kit.

I found a website online that can customize any apparel Visti www.tribesandfashion.com and create your own GB Union Jack themed Olympic Gears there - with the help of their designers!

You can even sell your designs and they'll manufacture it for you. :)
