The style of football shorts has changed a lot over the many decades the beautiful game has been played, from the super-short shorts of the 70s and 80s to the longer shorts of the 90s.
In the beginning football was played with trousers or sweat pants before long shorts were adopted in the late 19th century, which is around the time that standardised football kits also came into play to make teams look more official.
The main job of the football shorts is to be comfortable and allow the player to perform to the best of their ability without causing chaffing or impeding the stride of the player, to this end they are usually made up of materials like polyester to allow them to be worn comfortably, although in the past cotton was used.
Using our online kit designer you can create custom football shorts for your team, whether you want them to match the shirt of the team or if you want to use the shorts to introduce new colours to bring some balance to the kit.
Many teams have shorts that are alternate colours to the shirts or socks to help them be distinguished on the pitch. Choose your design, whether you want block colours of an element such as a stripe down the sides to match the short, then simply add your colour scheme. We can add your team's logo to the shorts to help them match the kit as a whole or add squad numbers or sponsors.
