The well-designed 17-18 home shirt, away shirt and third shirt were jointly unveiled by Adidas and Olympique de Marseille(also known as I’OM or Marseille). These white vertical stripes on the front of the home jersey represent the regional flag of Provence, which also appear on the inside of the neckline and cuffs. The purple third jersey with buckled lapel design is even more striking than the traditional sky-blue away jersey. Before the club was changed its name from FC Marseille into Olympique Marseille, purple is the main color of the club’s shirts.
This is the last time Marseille launched Adidas jerseys before the 2018-19 season with the new sponsor PUMA. The cooperation that has lasted for 40 years between Marseille and Adidas will also come to end. PUMA will provide match jerseys and training kits for the club from July 2018, which will be of great importance for Marseille as well as PUMA. The brand probably owns more fans and develops better in France.
Marseille 2017-18 home shirt is predominately withe with sky-blue details. It features a V-neck collar and blue cuffs. Classic Adidas three stripes are put on shoulders. The original badge including a letter “M” superimposed over an “O” is shown on the home shirt and the club’s motto “Droit au but(Straight to the Goal)” appears under the badge. The “OM” badge was designed by the club founder René Dufaure de Montmirail.
