The new Ligue 1 season kicks off this weekend, and all 20 clubs will be walking out in new kits. Generally, the standard is pretty high with some solid designs. There are a couple of terrible efforts that we’re likely to see on sale towards the end of the season.
LIGUE 1 BEST KITS
ANGERS HOME KIT 21/22
The gold Kappa logo and piping around Angers badge and the sleeves really work with the black and white vertical stripes.
OGC NICE THIRD KIT 21/22
OGC Nice and Macron have nailed this third kit design. The gold piping and font works brilliantly with the black base color.
LORIENT AWAY KIT 21/22
Kappa smashes it again with this white, black, and orange Lorient away kit. Normally three sponsors overcrowd a shirt, but for some reason, this works.
STADE DE REIMS AWAY KIT 21/22
Umbro have done themselves proud with this two-tone blue design and gold font. The main body blue is inspired by the club’s original coat of arms and is one of the standout patterns in Ligue 1.
PSG AWAY KIT 21/22
I like the color choice and subtleness of PSG‘s half and half design in their away kit. If you want one, our recommendation is to buy ASAP. These will be the hardest kits to come by now Lionel Messi has signed.
LIGUE 1 WORSE KITS
BREST THIRD KIT KIT 21/22
I know French football is struggling financially, and every cent counts. But five sponsors is just ridiculous and crowds this simple Adidas kit design.
STADE RENNAIS HOME KIT 21/22
Another example of a kit ruined by too many sponsors. Stade Rennais‘s home kit has four sponsors in a basic and boring white-colored font.
LIGUE 1 KIT BUYING TIPS
- The latest Soccer kits can be extremely expensive. High Press Soccer recommends you visit your side’s official club shop to compare the price with American retailers.
- If you’re patient, wait till the end of the season when kits are reduced in price. The risk is they might sell out and be unavailable.
WHERE TO BET LIGUE 1 IN THE US
In the US, you can legally bet on soccer in more than two dozen states. You can bet online in some states, but only in-person betting is allowed in most of them.
