I really like that Sweeden away kit. Very nice.

Few more away kits and the official Euro 16 match ball:

Damn I can't remember which team were using that stripe design, but I know it's already using before.

^ Wow those numbers on the shorts are far too big. Otherwise that's a very nice looking kit.

Adidas has a teamwear kit with a similar design. I think Chelsea has it.

Wow, surprised no one mentioned this yet. Houston's MLS 2 club is officially Rio Grande Valley FC Toros:

It's a good take on the Dynamo's identity, orange and light blue is a great color combo, and it continues this year's theme of "MLS 2 Teams That Actually Are Unique Somewhat". However, am I seeing things or are the horns two different shades of orange? And why does the bottom half look like something you'd see with a bee-themed team? Apparently it's supposed to represent "the agriculture history of the Rio Grande Valley", but with the shape of the crest and the stripes it kind of looks like an abstract bee or hornet stinger. Regardless, solid look.

Perhaps the reason why the three stripes are missing off the shorts is that there isn't room for them with those big bloody numbers...

Here is a link for how the numbering is going to look on the Adidas kits. No numbers on the shorts (which I think look great), but you get the idea.

Out of all the kits the Germany away and Wales away are the only down grades IMO.

Puma is even putting out some nice classic looking kits for the Euro.

The ball is in your court Nike.

I just noticed that all the away shorts don't have the three stripes on it.

Looks like it might just be a clash kit thing?

I'm honestly starting to like the side stripes better. Sure, it makes the jerseys look like they have side panels, but they're not as obtrusive as the sleeve stripes and they flow with the shorts stripes pretty well.

They still look like too much, though.

Anyone know if tonight was the first time the USMNT has worn the striped gradient socks that the WNT wears rather than the solid navy socks?

No, they did it for the first time for 2 months ago against Brazil, but before then they wore the plain navy socks. Very odd. Reminds me of when the US debuted their 2010 WC kit with the previous kit's socks.

Here is Brazil:

No, it's not Chelsea and no Watford, but yeah Campeon 15 from adidas got similar design.

Watford looks similar:

The NASL Championship Final is today. This year's tournament has a tweaked logo from last year:

Does anybody know why they stopped calling it the "Soccer Bowl"?

They still call it that unofficially but not sure why the logo doesn't say it.

The trophy is still called the Soccer Bowl. "The Championship" is their term for the playoffs.
