There’s no surer sign of your loyalty to your country and your passion for the global game than an official jersey. Mexico’s is a must have for El Tri supporters thanks to its retro vibes reminiscent of the 1994 kits.
Impress your friends and rock the Hirving “Chucky” Lozano version to show you’re in the know and behind the next great Mexican goalscorer.
Brazil’s campaign for a sixth star will take place in a fresh Nike home kit revealed in March and ready for 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™. The 2018 jersey is iconic as ever in yellow, as it has been since 1954, but this year’s is a more vibrant Samba Gold.
The reigning world champions also come correct thanks to the three stripes with a vintage-inspired home jersey that harkens back to 1990. They lifted the cup that year and have what it takes to be the first back-to-back victors since Brazil in 1962 thanks to the vision and creativity of Mesut Ozil.
The very fact that this shirt will be sported by Lionel Messi makes it a hot item. El Pibe de Barrio is still in search of his first major trophy (Olympics aside) with La Albiceleste. He will take aim in a jersey inspired by the 1993 kit worn by the last Argentina side to win silverware at the Copa America.
As defending champions of Europe, the eyes of the world will be fixated on Cristiano Ronaldo and the Portugal national team. Their 2018 Nike home kit features a jersey that is the same classic shade of red that covers most of their flag.
The authentic jersey also features the introduction of Nike’s Vaporknit technology. Vaporknit features the latest in sweat-wicking innovation that hugs Cristiano’s body (or yours) for the perfect athletic fit.
The 2014 Golden Ball winner makes his way back to the big stage in a stunning Los Cafeteros kit. James Rodriguez headlines a Colombian outfit that will rock a revamped 1990 look. It’s a jersey that will show up big on the stage and also on the streets.
You might remember Belgium as the team that bested the United States in Brazil. We like to think of them as a Golden Generation of European stars ready to make another leap. Kevin de Bruyne pulls the strings in midfield and he’ll do it while sporting diamonds front and center with those 1984 feels.
Semifinalists in South Africa 2010, Uruguay is powered by the duo of Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani and comes into Group A full of confidence. PUMA gave them, to our eyes, the best kind of kit — one that is clean from afar and done up with dope details that are revealed up close. The Sol de Atlánta monument is revealed across the torso and shines brilliantly in style.
Los Incas bested Chile to qualify for their first FIFA World Cup finals since 1982 and return in classic Peruvian sash style. Gold details set it apart and the iconic design makes it a historic home run.
If you don’t want to wear a jersey, we have the next best thing with official shirts, sweatshirts, polos and anything else you can imagine to show your support.

12) Fan Jackets
It’s cold in Russia. Teams are bundling up and walking out in fresh adidas and Nike anthem jackets that wrap you in complete comfort. Rock one, too, and you’ll look like a player.
The entire world is pursuing the trophy. You don’t have to book a flight to Russia to get yours, though. We have replicas in pins, keychains and real-life size. Go on, claim your cup.
Collect a set. If you want to compete for a crown of your own, you want to get started on your Panini book. You get a magazine full of every country and player with spots to gather their stickers and place them triumphantly. It’s a tradition. The official 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ Panini album and stickers will be available at SOCCER.COM in late March.
15) The Mascot
Zabivaka. Not only is that a fun word to say, it’s the name of the official mascot of this summer’s event and it means “the one who scores.” He’s a wolf who “radiates fun, charm and confidence,” and he’s available in many forms — figurines, keychains, hats and more.
So what if it’s the summer, wearing the Ushanka is a bold and, frankly, baller play. Instead of the usual fur, this one is made of foam. Wear it up, wear it down, but don’t wear it out.
Whether held aloft or wrapped around your neck, the soccer scarf is top accessory for a true fan. We have a collection of official ones you’ll see in the stands all summer long.
Keep track of every match with the tournament wall chart or remember the pageantry and artistry of the event with posters that champion each host city
