These are the new Nike Kashima Antlers Home and Away kits for the 2021 J1 League.

Intended to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the club - due in October 2021 - the “4D Fit” Home shirt is red with an antler-cum-sword-clash-signifying stylised cross detail in the texturing, while the crest appears in full colour and partner branding generally appears in white - though the famous YellowHat stetson on the upper back is in its standard tones.

From Kit and Bone’s “North Pole Premier League” range, this is their Snowman City 20/21 football shirt.

Is it Frosty the Snowman? Or, as the crest and sponsor imply, Raymond Briggs’ The Snowman? Both? Or - perhaps crucially - neither? Regardless, we need a little cheer this year and this colourful, Christmas-styled number - that mildly suggests the 2014-15 Manchester City Away - delivers it with a bow attached (NB: no bow attached).

The name Rudolf has significant ties to football via Herr Dassler’s Puma, so it’s fitting to see it make a couple of appearances on this Kit and Bone release.

That said, so does “Adolf” thanks to adidas. Fortunately, it’s unlikely to be similarly celebrated by football’s self-styled “Unofficial Partner”. No, Kit and Bone are paying tribute here to the legendary red-nosed reindeer as part of their special “North Pole Premier League” football shirt range.


Christmas is virtually upon us. For many, a Christmas like no other, but the football kit world is providing things like this to cheer us.

Kit and Bone essentially produce alternative football shirts and this F[ather]C[hristmas]F[ootball]C[lub] design has the hallmarks of an elite release but slavered with Yuletide trimmings - the North Pole competition patches and “SLEIGH NAVTECH” sponsorship branding nice touches.

One mode of escapism from all 2020 has brought - and much 2021 will bring - is to immerse ourselves in another football kit era. The beginning of Admiral’s heyday is as good as any.

These 1974-75 season catalogue images provided by The Glove Bag on Twitter contain some wonderful treats. A cheerful Peter Shilton goalkeeping range on the eve of a status quo-maintaining European Common Market membership referendum might raise a wry smile, and there are plenty of iconic kit designs replicated the Bert Patrick (RIP) way, but it is the tracksuits which really draw the eye.

Atalanta Bergamasca Calcio, of Italy’s Serie A, revealed a special edition “Christmas Match” shirt at the weekend.

The new design - produced by Joma - continues a tradition of Atalanta wearing a special shirt for their final home match of the year, with 2020’s being the impressive victory over AS Roma.


Erreà revealed the Asante Kotoko SC third football shirt for the 2020–21 Ghana Premier League season.

This is a shirt created to enhance the Ghanaian cultural heritage through the Adinkra symbols representing power, strength and leadership.
