Copa América 2019 hosts Brazil unveiled their Nike home and away kits for this summer’s South American football championship on Tuesday with modeling by Real Madrid star Vinicius Júnior.
The highlight of the launch is Brazil’s first white jersey since the introduction of the team’s famous yellow primary shirt in 1954. The commemorative kit is inspired by the one worn by Brazil during the first ever Copa America in 1919.
The team made history that year by winning the tournament at home and starting a journey of victories that transformed Brazilian football into a national icon.
Merging the early-1920s vintage feel of football with the modern style of contemporary sport, the special-edition Copa America jersey celebrates the 100th anniversary of that energetic moment.
White pays tribute to the historic 1919 trophy. A classic polo neck, player numbers and details on the sleeves are blue.
The Brazilians will wear the Copa America 100th Anniverary Nike kit on June 14, against Bolivia, at the Morumbi in São Paulo.
Brazil’s 2019/20 yellow home kit makes reference to the Seleção of 1989. Brazil hosted the tournament for the fourth time and maintained the status of being crowned champions every time that it did so that year.
The V-neck of the jersey gives way to a classic green polo shirt design that resembles the Brazil home shirt of 1989.
Brazil will wear their blue 2018/19 away uniform for until the end of the ongoing international soccer calendar.
