A NEW football team finally got their kit off and took to the field completely NAKED for the first time.

The Nacktionalmannschaft –  a pun on the German words for “nude” and “national team” – debuted in front of a 300-strong crowd in Duisburg, Germany.

The side, which is comprised of both men and women, only wore boots and socks — with their numbers painted on their backs.

The game was organised by artist and filmmaker Gerrit Starczewski, 34.

He said: “A game such as there has never been before in the vastness of the football planet – a team in jerseys against a nude 11.”
