adidas Launches New Special Edition Kit for Colombia's National Football Team to Wear at the Copa América Centenario

Copa America Jugadores 4 Blanco 30X20CM

adidas and the Colombian Football Federation present the new kit in which the Colombian Football Team will champion the next Copa América Centenario. This special edition will be worn solely during this tournament and will replace the yellow kit only for this championship.

Colombia's National Football Team will debut this special edition kit on June 3rd during the Cup's opening match, where it will face the USA National Football Team.

The design

The white color is a tribute to the first football team that represented Colombia in an international competition. An homage to the shirt displayed by Colombia's National Football Team at its first Copa América ever: Chile 1945. adidas and the Colombian Football Federation present a modern version of this historic legacy to commemorate this competition's 100-year mark.

As a traditional adidas hallmark, the iconic three stripes are present along the sides of the shirt, producing an exclusive model, highlighted by its simplicity and style. The "V" neck references past kits from the 40s, known for their avant-garde design at the time, which replaced conventional shirt-like necks. The kit is complemented by blue shorts and red socks, showcasing an exclusive, stylish, and modern design.

Technology

The new shirt is available in two versions, varying in technology. On one side, ClimaCool® presents ventilation zones that benefit the players when in difficult climate conditions, keeping them cool, dry, and comfortable. It's also anatomically designed to let the air flow, generating a permanent ventilation system.

On the other side, the adizero version is highlighted for being lightweight, thus generating less load on the player.
