Chile’s O’Higgins Fútbol Club has become the first soccer team to wear kits from American company New Balance following the launch of their 2015 home and away kits earlier this week.
The release of the Primera División’s team’s new uniforms lends credence that New Balance will replace child brand Warrior on the kits of the likes of Liverpool FC, FC Porto, Sevilla FC and Stoke City during the 2015/16 kit cycle.
The O’Higgins FC 2015 New Balance shirts use a design different from all of Warrior Football’s often innovative 2014/15 jerseys. The sky blue home, white away and black third kits are all contemporary in look with contrasting colors via front taping and their collars.
They were unveiled on Monday at the Mall Patio Rancagua with modeling from players Braulio Leal, Pablo Calandria, César Fuentes and Roberto González.
