After toiling away with a big cat on their chests for the last few years, the Chile national football team makes the switch to the Swoosh beginning this year. In fact, beginning last weekend, the U20 men’s team having taken on Qatar on August 9 in Spain, and giving the new Chile national team kits their on-pitch debut in the process.
The home kit, the one premiered on Sunday in the 1-0 victory over Qatar, features a shock of red through the predominantly solid-colored jersey, with a white polo-style collar and deep blue cuffs adding stark contrast while completing the national palette. That shirt is worn with blue shorts and white socks for a consistent look head to toe.
In away matches, Chile will wear a stunning, solid white shirt inspired by the Andes Mountains, while the collar and the cuffs — blue and red here, respectively — offer up colorful juxtaposition. Solid white shorts and socks keep the kit crisp, clean and colorfully understated, while also allowing the secondary colors to really pop against the sea of white.
The new Chile national team kits are now available for pre-sale exclusively through the Nike Football App. They’ll be widely available at select global retailers on August 15. Take a closer look below, and keep it locked to NB for future football kit updates. It’s that time of year.
