Soccer makes much more sense to Americans when it’s explained to them using Game of Thrones. Spanish artist Nerea Palacios has done just this with his epically awesome GOT soccer uniform concepts. Every major family has its own custom design, one that stays true to each of their house colors and mottos. The Stark uniform is icy grey and white; the Night’s Watch, almost pitch black. This brilliant mash-up highlights the extraordinary similarities between the World Cup competition and the war for the Iron Throne: You win or you die.
