In celebration of its 25th year, Defected collaborates with MEYBA to deliver a run of Defected Croatia themed football shirts, available now on DStore.

Football heritage meets house music legacy with Defected x MEYBA’s collaborative range, consisting of special edition football shirts. The celebratory design, which draws inspiration from Croatia’s 1998 FIFA World Cup kit, will be available from Thursday 13th June - launching just in time to get yours for Defected Croatia.

Incorporating a number of design elements honouring our 25-year reign - the shirt features a ‘25’ squad number, our unmistakable Worldwide badge, and intricate stitch detail with two gold stars representing our two UK No.1 singles, Roger Sanchez's 'Another Chance' and MK's remix of Storm Queen - 'Look Right Through'.

 The worlds of football, music and fashion have never been so closely aligned – football shirts are now a firm favourite amongst club and festival goers, making this unique limited-edition shirt for Defected Croatia 24’ the perfect collaboration.” - Jonathan Jones, Head of Global Marketing at MEYBA  

With over 80 years' experience in shirt design, this collaboration marks MEYBA’s first exclusive global partnership with a music label, blending their rich history as a football staple with our unrivalled presence within dance music culture. With roots in Barcelona as the official kit supplier for the city’s football club, Defected x MEYBA is a testament to our ongoing expansion across Europe.

“MEYBA shirts have featured in some of the football’s most iconic photographs. Picture Maradona, Cruyff, Lineker and a young Guardiola in the golden era of football – the MEYBA logo is front and centre. Partnering with a brand engrained within football’s culture and heritage was a natural fit for us at Defected. Collaboratively we have designed a limited-edition Defected x MEYBA shirt that looking back 25 years or so is a nod to the classic Croatia kit from the 1998 World Cup, featuring some unique Defected touches throughout.”- Simon Dawson, Brand Director at Defected

With the intrinsic link between music and sport ever prevalent in today’s culture, the release perfectly coincides with the forthcoming UEFA Euro 2024 tournament and the eighth edition of Defected Croatia, set for 01-04 August 2024; to purchase tickets and find out more, visit our dedicated croatia festival site at
