Who has the Best Kit at Euro 2016?

Euro 2016 best kit tournament

With all 24 kits released for the upcoming Euro 2016 in France, Ireland’s leading sports portal SportsJOE have predicted how the tournament would play out if results were based on the beauty of jerseys…

“We decided that the fairest way to decide on the most beautiful jerseys in France would be to play out the tournament and let the best shirt win. During the group stages, we awarded every team a mark out of five for their home top and a mark out of five for their away. Their combined mark out of 10 will determine whether or not they make it out of the group. The top two teams and four of the best-marked third placed teams all qualified for the knockout stages,” writes SportsJOE when explaining the tournament ‘rules’.

Croatia’s new heavily checked kit comfortably made its way out the group stages, scoring 5 out of 5 for the home kit and 4 out of 5 for the blue alternative.

Croatia then breezed into the quarter-final after beating the Russian jersey in the second round.

“For some reason, the Russia away jersey intrigued us but intrigue simply doesn’t cut the mustard against the glorious Croatian double whammy.”

“Croatia took a little bit of a risk when they modernised their usual checkered pattern but, wow, did it pay off,” SportsJOE writes before declaring Croatia the winner of Euro 2016 based on kit beauty.
