KIT MANUFACTURERS WORLD CUP WINNERS 1966-2018
Umbro were the first recognised football kit brand to deck out a World Cup winner - providing the shirts for Brazil when they lifted the Jules Rimet trophy in 1958. The British company continued to provide the kits for the winners of the next three World Cup tournaments, including the legendary Braziliam side of the Mexico 70 World Cup.
There have been a few other classic football kit manufacturers who've decked out the winners since, including the likes of Erima, adidas and Le Coq Sportif. It wasn't until 2002 when a company without a traditional football kit heritage would supply the World Cup winners - American giant Nike eventually got in on the act with their Brazilian deal (their first football kit in Europe had been Sunderland's, between 1983-86, whilst their deal with PSG in 1989 was their first really big foray into the market of continental Europe).
