The story behind the new Marseille 2018/19 jerseys

Olympique Marseille have gone route one with their 2018/19 kits by unveiling all three home, away and third jerseys in one drop.

Simple and uncluttered, the 2018/19 home shirt takes on the iconic colours of Olympique Marseille.

The sleeves are a reference to the sea, designed as a major element of the PUMA Olympique Marseille collection. The collar sports a thin blue line that complements the emblem of the city, on the back of the neck.

Football is the heart of Marseille. This was the guiding creative idea for the Away jersey in the PUMA Olympique Marseille collection.

Marseille is a football ground. The city vibrates and comes alive around the passion that brings together all generations.

This idea surges through the design of the blue “pulse,” extending onto the front of the jersey. This heartbeat represents the fervor and passion of football that defines the city and its supporters so well.

The combination of black and blue brings a real contrast to all the details of the iconic jersey.

Inspired by the movement of the waves of the sea, the third jersey is characterized by different degrees of the color blue. We will also find these different shades throughout the rest of the kit (shorts and socks).

In the same spirit as the home and away jersey, it completes the PUMA Olympique Marseille collection for the 2018/19 season.

In store for R999 at Totalsports, Studio 88, Takealot and independent retailers.
