Belgium Kit: Through the years

Design: Black, red and yellow take centre stage on the Belgium kit to give the “Red Devils” a distinctive look among international sides. While their nickname gives away the kits predominant colour, the contrast with the yellow and black provides great scope for innovation in design.

Short History: With the 2014 World Cup set to be their twelfth outing at the competition, it is fair to say that Belgium have some pedigree in terms of achieving qualification. The red shirt has been a feature throughout and, while there has been some variation between red and black shorts, the chosen colour scheme has remained consistently in line with the country's flag. While, such as in 1995, white has also come to play a prominent role in the design of the kit, the country's best designs have come when sticking firmly to the bold colours that they have become renowned for.

The greatest kit: If there is one shirt that exemplifies how a Belgian World Cup shirt should be, it is surely the outfit in which the side competed at the 1986 iteration of the competition. With yellow the predominant supplementary colour to the red, used tastefully in stripes on the shoulders, the sophisticated looking shirt design stands out as an example of why subtlety is often the best approach when designing football kits.

Kits through the years:

Belgium have a long history in the competition, beginning in 1930.
