MEXICO CITY – Adidas and the Mexican Soccer Federation announced on Friday the official on-pitch presentation of the National Team’s uniform, during its FIFA World Cup Qualifier match against Panama at the Estadio Azteca.
Mexico’s National Soccer team is the first of all adidas sponsored teams to present its new uniform. The match kit will convey the entire country’s hopes and optimism as the team battle to qualify for the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™.
The new jersey features a bi tonal green base, to form a unique and premium design, while the elegant white touches on the chest, sleeves and the iconic three stripes add to the overall look of the jersey.
FMF’s crest is located in the middle of the chest, accompanied by a graphic element expressing the strength, passion and pride of an entire nation. The word MÉXICO on the back of the jersey, balance out the design with a subtle bow to the country’s rich past.
The new kit is the lightest in FMF history thanks to adidas adizero engineering, which combines different technologies to offer the lightest football kit, allowing players to remain fast, cool and comfortable on the pitch.
On the new kit, adidas’ Brand Director, Teodoro Husemann commented: “For adidas it is an honor to outfit the National Team. We have developed the lightest jersey, with an innovative and unique design, while staying true to our principle of offering only the best to our athletes, the Mexican Federation, and football fans on our way to FIFA’s World Cup 2014.”
