Spain Kit

La Seleccion’ started in 1915, and was originally intended as a means of choosing the side which took part in the Olympic Games. The national team made their full debut in the 1920 Olympics in Belgium and came away with the silver medal.

During the years there have also been Galician, Basque and Catalan national sides, but they are yet to be recognised by FIFA, although they continue to play International fixtures to this very day.

The current national team are the best in Spanish history and are currently both European and World champions.
