#SmiteTheWorld: Iceland World Cup 2018 Football T-shirt Now On Sale!

Published May 22, 2018

Our 2018 World Cup #SmiteTheWorld t-shirt is now on sale.

After many battles, the Icelandic Viking horde has emerged victorious, and qualified for the 2018 World Cup in Russia. The road had been long, but the raiding party had travelled around the world, joyfully smiting every foe into oblivion like a juice store guy smiting fruit into… juice.

“Deep inside the fortified nation of Russia, the gleaming trophy awaits.”

Ahead lies the biggest challenge yet. Deep inside the fortified nation of Russia, the gleaming World Cup trophy awaits. The horde have been preparing; playing keepy-uppy with the heads of their smited foes, spending time in seclusion communing with the old gods, training by running through concrete walls, and then bathing in a newly constructed sauna that runs on #RonaldoTears.

Glowing armour

This mightiest of campaigns calls for a new piece of armour. And so we announce the World Cup 2018 version of our fabled SmiteShirt: the #SmiteTheWorld edition, available now in Glacial Blue, Terrifying Black and Iceberg White. Every shirt is woven by elves, certified dragon-proof, tempered by an Icelandic blacksmith, and rumoured to glow blue when Einstok Beer is near.

Order your shirt here. They’re delivered worldwide by our murder of indefatigable crows. Order now to ensure your shirt reaches you before the first skirmish of this historic footballing war, and celebrate in style as the Ice Age cometh.

Follow our live commentary of the World Cup on Twitter, and read our pre-tournament buildup, including player profiles, predictions, and news from the Icelandic battle camp here.
