CONCACAF Champions League winners for the last three seasons Club de Futbol Monterrey have launched their Nike 2013/14 home and away kit. Both will be available at World Soccer Shop.
According to a press release from Nike: Nike introduces the new C.F.Monterrey home and away kits, which are inspired by the bond between players and fans and the club’s forthcoming move to a new stadium. Founded in 1945, the northern Mexico club has enjoyed incredible success over the last decade, capturing four league titles and winning CONCACAF Champions League titles in 2011, 2012 and 2013.
The home shirt boasts Monterrey’s famed blue and white stripes in a classic design, with blue sleeves. The loyalty and passion of the club’s fans is represented in the new orange details on the kit; the shirt has an orange crossover V-neck collar and orange cuffs on the sleeves.
The away shirt is covered in a bold design of tonal blue and white checks. These checks represent the inherent strength of the club, and the interlocking bond between fans and players.
Inside both jerseys there is a bonded woven label featuring the club’s name underneath a silhouette of the Cerro de la Silla (Saddle Mountain), an evocative landmark on the outskirts of Monterrey.
The back of the sock reads: “Rayados,” a common nickname for the club, which translates as “The Striped Ones.”
