The text “80 ANIVERSARIO” (80th Anniversary) is printed on the latest Saprissa kit’s outside rear collar. “EQUIPO DEL SIGLO” (Team of the Century) appears on the inside neckline.
Another notable feature of the shirt is a tonal print of El Monstruo’s (The Monster’s) crest. a large latter S, on the lower front left side.
The Deportivo Saprissa 2015 home and away kits were unveiled in January. The 2016 strips are expected to be revealed around the same time next year.
