Football's class of 2010/11 provided no shortage of colour both on and off the pitch. Kit designs continue to get more intricate, flashy and sometimes downright bizarre and this year's contenders were no different.

Goal.com's global team of editors have picked out their favourite shirts from around the world which left a lasting impression. Do you agree with our selections? There's also a chance to win a shirt of your choice by taking part in our competition in association with .


10) Blackpool (Home)


The Tangerines brought much needed fresh air to the Premier League last season. Ian Holloway's team were all about brightness in their ultimately doomed rookie campaign. They played with a fearless style, had a straight talking manager, optimistic fans, and best of all was their shirts. Blackpool's were the brightest in the league, which made perfect sense.



9) Penarol (Libertadores)

Uruguay's Penarol opted for a minimalist approach for their Copa Libertadores kit. Minus a sponsor, their famed black and yellow stripes stood out all the more in this simple but hugely stylish shirt. See the jersey here.

8) Sanfrecce Hiroshima (Home)

J.League meets Jimi Hendrix was the approach from Sanfrecce Hiroshima in their psychedelic Paul Klee-inspired shirt. Nobody knows if the Purple Haze was designed to hypnotise the opposition but one thing is for sure it has quickly become a collectors item.


7) Marseille (Third Kit)

Les Phoceens have always been a club that have done things their own way. To celebrate their return to the Champions League as Ligue 1 winners the French side paid tribute to their heritage of blooding young African players as well as the multicultural city of Marseille with this colourful third kit.


6) PSV (Away)

PSV and sponsor Philips are synonymous with each other. For their away effort the Eredivisie club plumped for a daring black design with red and white blocks in honour of the Noord-Brabant region which they represent.

 

5) Inter (Away)

Replacing Jose Mourinho and repeating the treble is no easy feat. In order to do so the Nerazzurri injected some bite into their away shirt with Biscione the Italian serpent featuring on the sleeves and down the side of the kit. The shirt was first seen in the 2010 Scudetto celebrations and featured during the 2011 Coppa Italia-winning campaign.

4) Man City (Third Kit)

Perhaps the Citizens were trying to convince Carlos Tevez he was playing for River Plate in this eye catching shirt. No doubt influenced by the Argentinian club the white with a red and black sash design will go in history as Man City won a trophy for the first time since 1976.

3) Flamengo (Away)

One of Brazil's greatest clubs went back in time to recreate an 80s classic. After failing to land a new sponsor the South American giants opted for a clean approach complete with fetching black, red and white sleeves for their away shirt. With Ronaldinho now onboard perhaps they can recreate their best form on the pitch too. See the shirt here.

2) Valencia (Japan Tribute)

March's devastating Japanese earthquake and tsunami had a massive effect on the global game. Tributes were held around the world and none were more fitting than Valencia's offering for their clash with Seville in the aftermath of the disaster. Los Che had the names of their players translated into Japanese in a fitting gesture that was widely applauded. See the shirt here.




1) Kaiserslautern (Fritz Walter Special)

German legend Fritz Walter was remembered by Kaiserslautern on what would have been his 90th birthday. One club man Walter was honoured with a retro shirt which his old club wore against Borussia Monchengladbach last October. Fans got two shirts for the price of one as when you turned it inside out there was a replica of the 1954 West German jersey which Walter captained to glory. The shirt (right) had the message, "The key to success is friendship and the will to give everything for each other."
