England home & away kits for 2023 Women’s World Cup revealed

England will be wearing two brand new Nike kits at the 2023 Women’s World Cup, a classic white home shirt and an eye-catching blue away jersey.

The home kit is described as a ‘chalky’ colour inspired by the architecture of the original Wembley Stadium built in the early 1923, now a century ago.

There is also a nod to the Lionesses of 1984 in the colour scheme, with the white shirt with blue accents and blue shorts reminiscent of the kit worn by the first England women’s team assembled for an official major tournament – they finished runner-up in the inaugural European Championship.

The Lionesses have notably worn all-white kits in recent years. But following consultation and feedback from the players last summer over concerns relating to wearing white shorts while on their period, a decision to incorporate darker shorts has been made.

That is also reflected in the technology featured in the kit, with the ‘pro’ version of the shorts making use of Nike Leak Protection. The kit is made from Nike DRI-FIT ADV technology, which is the sporting giant’s latest advanced performance material innovation engineered for the body in motion. 

The blue away shirt features a bold geometric pattern and a colour fade that is also a nod to the original Wembley architecture. It is a notable but exciting change for Lionesses players used to wearing more traditional red England change strips.
