The revived Teamgeist collection sees the famous 2006 World Cup Template return, with the unique design originally worn by international teams including Argentina and Germany, during the tournament, followed by club teams during the 2006-07 campaign.
Now, nine club teams – Ajax, Arsenal, Celtic, FC Bayern, Boca Juniors, Flamengo, Juventus, Manchester United & Real Madrid – will each have a special edition collection released featuring a reimagined Teamgeist design for the modern era, which will be available to buy this December.
“The revived Teamgeist collection is a fantastic way to celebrate such an iconic design, many fans still remember that era around 2006 and feel comfortable, and excited, when seeing remakes because it triggers such great memories.
At the same time, the Teamgeist era and its characteristic designs are highly fashionable again. This makes it so easy to adapt also for the ones who were too young to witness the 2006 magic by themselves, but they know and love the styles from back then.”

We have also partnered with Japanese publication Shukyu to showcase the new Teamgeist range. A one-off, limited-edition version of the magazine – launching in early 2022 – will feature the new collection through a series of lifestyle imagery shot on models, artists, tastemakers and football culture enthusiasts. As well as images of the new collection, the magazine will also feature interviews with legends from some of the respective clubs, including Oliver Kahn, Rio Ferdinand, David Trezeguet & Shunsuke Nakamura, discussing how the game has changed while looking back on their careers.
At the start of the millennium, Adidas Teamgeist collection in the 2006 Fifa World Cup made its mark in Football with its distinctive and instantly recognizable style inspired by the technical advancement behind the Teamgeist ball.
15 years on we’re delighted to be teaming up with Adidas to showcase the revived collection through more of a fashion & cultural lense.
