It’s no surprise, of course, to see the England shirt at the top of the list – and with over 60% of EURO shirt sales on Kitbag, that’s by far too.
The classic, sleek Three Lions kit has received a lot of praise, but sales will inevitably come from loyalty to the team as much as design.
The supply for the England shirt is said to be running out – and demand is only expected to increase the longer Gareth Southgate’s side remain in the tournament.
Elsewhere, Italy – which impressed many with its early performances in the competition – comes in second. Their shirts represent a 7% share.
France, favorite of bookmakers, comes in 3rd position with 5.99% market share. Whoever beats Didier Deschamps’ team will surely imagine themselves against all that the tournament has to offer.
Germany hardly ever have a bad kit – and this effort is certainly no different. They have a 5.29% market share but could face an uphill battle to stay in the competition after losing to France on Matchday 1.
Portugal won EURO 2016 despite winning only one of their matches in 90 minutes. Their home shirts are simplistic in design, although this is their shirt outside they wore in their most talked about opener against Hungary. Portugal’s shirt sales account for a share of 4.61%.
6. The Netherlands
It doesn’t look like an international tournament without a sea of orange after the Netherlands.

Their sales represent a share of 2.93%.

Despite their distribution in much of the English league, the “brushstroke” design of their jersey, made by Adidas, represents a rather modest share of 1.49%.
It may be surprising to see Denmark ranking in this list above, for example Spain. But this effort from Hummel – the only jersey they’ve designed for EURO 2020 – is undeniably enjoyable. They represent a share of 1.46%.
The nation watched England take on Croatia on Matchday 1, starting their campaign successfully with a Raheem Sterling goal to zero. , to wear their all black. The 1.11% share of sales they currently hold may well increase once it makes its first release.
Seeing Spain’s ranking on this list is somewhat indicative of its current position among the traditional favorites in the competition.
Once back-to-back European Championship winners – with a World Cup stuck in their midst – Spain increasingly looks like a team in transition. As we have seen time and time again in football, anything can happen in tournament football.
Jersey sales in Spain represent 1.07% of all EURO 2020 sales.
