England designated all white as their kit for the World Cup 1970 final tournament. They wore this special lightweight summer shirt in the two South American World Cup warm-up matches against Colombia and Ecuador, and in the first two World Cup group matches against Romania and Brazil.

The shirt and shorts were made out of the same aertex material that England had worn on the previous trip to Mexico, in 1969, but this time, it was in short sleeves. In the two summers following the 1970 World Cup, England did not make any trips to warmer climes, but in 1973 and 1974, they, once again, donned the aertex on their end-of-season tours, though these only amounted to one game on each tour when they wore the white shirt.

Sir Geoff Hurst was issued with the above shirt and it appears here by kind permission of the National Football Shirt Collection (England Match Shirts), also part of the Neville Evans Collection (curator Simon Shakeshaft).
