1968 Intercontinental Cup (now the FIFA World Club Cup) champions Estudiantes de La Plata have launched their second home kit of the year. The 2017/18 jersey from Umbro Argentina replaces the 2017 shirt released back in February. It will be worn during Los Pincharratas (The Rat Stabbers) Primera, Copa Argentina and Copa Sudamericana seasons.
The Estudiantes de La Plata 2017/18 home kit uses a bespoke design from Umbro. The club’s famed red and white stripes appear on the front while its shoulders and sleeve are red. The shirt’s neckline is a rounded modern affair in red with a gray insert at its front. The back neckline and trim of the collar along with the waistline and collar detailing are also gray.
“Campéon del Mundo” (Champion of the World) is printed in black on the new Estudiantes kit’s lower back in recognition of the team’s 1968 world championship.
