History of the product
THE FIRST BLUE JERSEY
Since their first offical match versus Belgium in 1904, France played in white and then red shirts.
The first time France played in a blue jersey was on the 23rd March 1908 versus England in London ! An unlucky blue jersey : In England, the match ended with a heavy defeat for the French ! On the jersey's chest we find the 2 blue and red, interlaced rings. Worn by most of the French teams at the beginning of the century, these 2 rings were the symbol of the USFSA. Founded in 1887, L’Union des Sociétés Françaises de Sports Athlétiques was the most influential French sporting organisation of its time. It was only in 1919, after the creation of the official football federation that we know today that blue became the official colour of the French national football team. This jersey is proudly made in France in partnership with the National Sports Museum.
