Mexico City’s Pumas de la UNAM have unveiled their home and away uniforms for the Apertura 2014 and Clausura 2015 seasons from new technical partner Nike. Both will be available at World Soccer Shop in the coming weeks.
According to a press release from Nike: The Pumas, one of the most popular clubs in México, will play this season in a kit with a storied design that draws inspiration from the 1976-77 season, when the club won its first league championship. The new home jersey embodies the Pumas’ most authentic identity – the blue and gold colors recognized by fans around the world.
“It’s a pleasure to wear a kit emblazoned with the same design used when we won our first championship. This season, as we celebrate 60 years of the club, the team is focused and ready to add one more title to our existing seven,” said Club President Jorge Borja Navarrete.
The new home shirt is gold with navy accents, including the famous Club Pumas logo, which is prominently featured on the jersey’s chest. The new away jersey reverses the look with a navy base and gold accents.
An embossed UNAM (Universidad Nacional Autónoma de Mexico) logo on the left shoulder pays tribute to the team’s strong connection with the university. The jersey is further updated with a new crewneck collar.
The new home shorts and socks are gold, with a navy chevron stripe on the back of the socks. The away kit is completed with navy shorts and socks that have a gold stripe down the back of the calf.
Both new kits feature Nike’s signature style and design insights and offer players the very latest in performance innovation, kit technology and environmental sustainability.
