In a somewhat clever marketing strategy, Adidas Colombia revealed Team Colombia’s brand new home uniforms via some of the player’s social media accounts.
Players like James Rodriguez who plays for Spain’s top team Real Madrid, and Pablo Armero who plays for Italian league A.C Milan, took to their social media accounts to express their home pride in wearing the brand new team jersey.
“I’m very proud and it’s an honor to wear it,” said James Rodriguez.
Rodriguez also urged all Colombian’s to stand together in pride with the new official Team Colombia jersey for 2015.
Defender Pablo Armero wrote, ” You and I are Colombia. Together with Glee! “
The new designs come just in time for the Copa America 2015 tournament in Chile which starts next June as well as all the qualifying tournaments leading up to the Russia 2018 World Cup.
The new shirts feature the classic bright yellow background similar to the uniforms used in the 2014 Brazil World Cup but with a rounder navy blue collar and two buttons.
The Adidas standard stripes also in navy outline the shoulder portion of the jersey with it’s traditional logo on the left side.
The front of the jersey has a subtle faded imprint of the Colombian flag while the sleeves are cuffed with three stripes in yellow, navy and red which creates the Colombian flag.
Colombia’s Futbol Federation logo adorns the left top portion of the jersey and embellishing the bottom of the shirt is a contrasting thicker navy blue stripe.
Unchanged is the back of the collar with Team Colombia’s motto “Unidos Por Un Pais” or “United for one country” poetically meaning they play and stand united as one for their country of Colombia.
