UMBRO   World Champions Collection | Available Now

Debuted a few weeks back in England, the coveted World Champions Collection by UMBRO is finally available this side of the “pond”.  A retrospective incomparable to others before, the World Champions Collection marks not only this years’ FIFA World Cup, but UMBRO’s participation in various forms of “play”, from league championship to the dirt field at the back of local canteen. The limited edition series consist collaboration with local artists from 7 nations that previously won the much desired World Cup title.  In addition, serving as an alternative to the traditional team jerseys; the collection highlights more of the off-field, lifestyle aspect of the loyal soccer fans. Artists created imaginary crests and emblems less about lineages and royalties, instead, more on the true fanatical fellowship and their associations. Commissioned artists include:
