Federación Mexicana de Fútbol (FMF) technical sponsor adidas has unveiled the Mexico 2014 World Cup away jersey. It is now available at World Soccer Shop, Kitbag, adidas and Tienda Fútbol Mundial along with El Tri’s 2014/15 home shirt.
According to adidas: The new away kit of the Mexican team stands out through an innovative combination of red and black, reinterpreting classic jerseys of the national team worn in previous World Cups. This colour combination was first used in Uruguay 1930 through to Sweden 1958.
The color in the jersey pays homage to the passion, union and the combative spirit reflected in the red color of the Mexican flag. The shirt´s design is completed with black elements, around the v-neck, the borders of the sleeves and the traditional adidas three stripes, which provide elegance to the jersey’s design.
The crest is placed at the height of the heart featuring a dichromatic application. Below it, a black fretwork graphic is repeated subtlety in red tones down the front of the shirt.
The colors of the Mexican flag are present at the back of the jersey through the stripe located under the shoulders where the word “México” is framed in green, white and red. The rest of the kit is complemented by black shorts and red socks.
Like the home kit, the away kit also has the adidas adizero engineering, which makes these kits the lightest in history, offering a competitive advantage on pitch.
