While everyone is rushing to FIFA Ultimate Team and feverishly spend money opening packs, my favorite part of the game is exploring the new kits and picking out my favorite jerseys to make this post. Outfitting your Pro Clubs or FUT teams is one of the most important things you’ll do when the game releases so this is your guide to see the best and most unique jerseys in FIFA 19. In this post you’ll see I’ve organized the jerseys by the major five European leagues as well as by geographic region, highlighting the best, brightest and most bizarre.
Unfortunately many of the 3rd kits which were released later in the summer are currently not in the game, either in Kick Off or FUT. Hopefully this is a patch sooner rather than later because we’re missing some pretty sweet jerseys from some of Europe’s name brand clubs. The list below are those jerseys which are missing from the release and I’ll update this post if and when they are available.
- Chelsea – Light Blue, Ocean wave design
- PSG x Jumpman – Black and white, Jordan branded Champions League kits
- Barcelona – Pink body with a reddish pink pattern
- Manchester City – Purple with an orange horizontal sash
- Inter Milan – Greyish White, with a large St. George’s cross and marbling
- AS Roma – Yellow body with map of Rome design on the front
Last year, Nike stepped into the spotlight obtaining many new licenses (Spurs, Chelsea, etc.) for high profile teams across Europe and in their debut season they fell flat. Their alternate kits were identical across all teams and the overall effort was lazy and poor. This year the swoosh plays, Nike stepped up their game and put together some amazing kits both in terms of clean visual aesthetics but also with creativity which they severely lacked in FIFA 18.
You’re going to see everything from animals imprinted on the body to landmarks, maps, camouflage, geometric designs that will make your head spin and every color under the rainbow. I’ve tagged a few of the jerseys with my rationale as you might be wondering ‘Why did he include that one?’ Even if a jersey is boring but I can connect it to a more creative meaning then I’m going to include it.
For example, when you get to Blackburn Rovers you’re going to see a plain half white, half baby blue jersey with an advertisement on it. But to me, it looks like a Lionel Messi Argentina fan kit. It has the Argentina colors and a giant 10 in the advert on the chest. To me it reminds me of a knock-off jersey you’d find at a swap meet or mall kiosk. The rest I’ve chosen because I like the design, color pairing or creativity of the format.
