Fantasy Kit Friday, 1-12-17 – Olympique de Marseille
At the end of the current season, Olympique de Marseille will end their relationship with adidas.
The three stripes first appeared on the club’s kit in 1974 and, barring a brief foray away in 1994-95 with Reebok and 1995-96 with Mizuno, the club have been in adidas since then (in the early 1990s, the German company and the club had strong links due to Bernard Tapie, but we won’t go into all of that).

Then, the design Nike used for Brazil in 1998:
And, finally, Kappa’s Borussia Dortmund offering in 2011-12:
