El Club de Futbol Monterrey is a Mexican football club from Monterrey, Nuevo León. Founded in 1945, it is also the oldest team from the north of Mexico currently playing in its professional division. Because of its home uniform C.F. Monterrey is traditionally known as Los Rayados (the striped ones).
C.F. Monterrey finished the Clausura 2009 (Mexican Winter tournament) in 4th place. They were quarter-finalists in the subsequent play-offs.
Last night, with the theme “Con Honor de ser Rayado” (“With the Honour of being Rayado”), the C.F. Monterrey and Nike presented their home, away, training and goalkeeper kits for the 2009/10 Mexican Primera season.
The 09/10 Nike Rayados de Monterrey kits maintain the club’s traditional colours and are based on the designs of their strips of the 1980s . During this period C.F. Monterrey enjoyed much success. The club captured their first Primera División de México title in 1986.
