The Premier League is finally back! And boy have we missed it. Now we’re able to watch the game we love again, some of you may be starting to dream of the moment you get to step onto the pitch yourself.

We don’t know when competitive amateur football will be back. But one thing that is for sure is that we’ll all need some pretty intense training to get back up to speed. Why not kick off the new season with some new trainingwear?

Whether it’s for your own solo sessions or a team training kit, Nike have you covered with their Men’s and Women’s Academy Pro ranges. Not familiar with it? Well lets take a look at arguably Nike’s best teamwear training range of recent years…



A theme throughout the Nike Academy Pro range is the unique colourways. Utilising colours that are almost pastel shades, but that are also vibrant and eye-catching. Academy Pro also features the famous Nike swoosh as you’ve never seen it before, as a hollow embroidered outline of that familiar shape.

The short-sleeved training top, as is the case each product in the range, comes in four different colour combinations. The top features alternate top and bottom panels. Lightweight and breathable, it’s ideal for those sweaty pre-season training sessions. At home as a team training top or as a new addition to your gym wardrobe.

The Polo is perfect as a stylish yet performance ready team training or travel top. The dash of colour is slightly more subtle than on the training top, with a band running diagonally over the left sleeve and a thin stripe on the collar. The fold over ribbed collar offers a classic and professional look.

Drill Top & Jacket

The Nike Midlayer has become a training must-have in recent years. The perfect hybrid between performance training top and sweatshirt ticks so many boxes and the Academy Pro Drill Top is no different. The Drill top features a ¼ length zip for custom ventilation and easy removal. The lightweight and stretchy fabric is ideal for those dynamic training drills.

If a more traditional tracksuit top is more up your street then the Academy Pro Knit Jacket is a fine example. A simple yet welcome bonus feature is the zip pockets to keep your valuables safe. This is the perfect team tracksuit jacket, just imagine your club’s badge sitting proudly on that vibrant chest panel.

Bottoms & Shorts

Picked between the Drill Top and Knit Jacket? Maybe you’re having both because you’re an absolute baller. Either way, you’ll be needing some matching bottoms. The stretchy and comfortable Knit Pant is the perfect partner for any of the tops we’ve shown you so far. Featuring a sleek tapered fit, they are built designed with both action and comfort in mind. Also featuring zip pockets, we like those.

More of a shorts guy? The Academy Pro Knit Short will see you through those pre-season running sessions in style. That now familiar and solid base colour of Anthracite is enhanced with alternate colour side stripes to add a bit of brightness to the garment.

Women’s Range

The Academy Pro range also features a number of women’s fit options. Based on the same base design as the men’s products, the women’s Training Top, Drill Top, Knit Jacket, Knit Short and Knit Pant are built to suit the female shape and provide maximum comfort.
