Rare PSG Jersey?

Recommended Posts

My brother got me this Paris Saint Germain jersey awhile ago on vacation in Europe. To this day I've never been able to find a photo of anyone wearing one in this style during a game. In fact I haven't even seen it sold, so maybe it's only sold in Europe. Has anyone seen this jersey before?

HA! The one-year post-2002WC Cool Motion jerseys! Yes, I have seen that kit before - it was PSG's clash kit from 2003-2004.

After Nike came out with their cool motion kits for the Japan/Korea World Cup, the next year they changed the template design to the above. It lasted only one year - in 2004 they went to the first edition of the Total 90 kit. I actually have an Inter Milan shirt from 2003-2004 in that same template style. Not the best Nike has come out with lately, but not the worst.

Wow! Thanks. They must have never played in it because there are no photos of it in action.

EDIT: Go figure, I was able to get a roster from that season and ran a search on different player names:

Apparently there was an adidas model of the same jersey!?

I believe that the FFF has a deal with adidas that extends to the French Cup. I believe all finalist regardless of uni sponsor have to wear adidas shirts.

Thats correct. I think all teams in the Coupe de France wear adidas shirts as well as the same uniform sponsors.

The French Cup teams that reach the semis have to switch over to adidas if adidas isn't their main sponsor. The adidas teams just keep the same kits. I laugh at the fact that the teams will usually not wear their team badge on these kits since it would violate exclusivity rights for the sponsor.

I have the away Barcelona jersey of the same design. It is pretty comfy. You can even get away with claiming it's a polo shirt at some bars that won't let you wear jerseys in.

I have the Inter home from that year, it's awesome. the Valencia home (and nuclear orange away!) from that year in that style are among my favorites too. Actually, screw it - that's one of my favorite Nike styles, and I'm glad they went as understated with their newest ones as they did with that style. It's just classy and awesome.
