The Canadian Soccer Association and Umbro launched the Canada 2012 Centennial Jersey at Toronto’s BMO Field on Thursday. The new Canucks / Les Rouges (The Reds) kit celebrates the 100th Anniversary of the founding of the Canadian Soccer Association in May 1912 and will be available as a limited edition shirt with only 1,912 units on sale.
According to the Canada Soccer website: On 3 June, the Men’s National Team will begin its 2012 home season with a Centennial match against cross-border rivals USA at BMO Field in Toronto. This match will commemorate the first official match that Canada played on home soil when they defeated the Americans 1-0 on 27 June, 1925 at Alexandra Park in Montreal.
To mark the occasion, Canada will wear a Centennial kit specially designed by Umbro. The Women’s National Team will also wear the Centennial kit on 30 June when they meet the USA at Rio Tinto Stadium in Sandy, Utah.
The Canada Umbro 2012/13 home and away kits were launched in February.
