A few months before the kick-off of the Copa America in the United States, Argentina’s National Football Team unveiled its new kit designed by adidas.
This summer, the major European football nations will come face to face in France to win the prestigious cup of “UEFA European Championship”. Meanwhile, at the other side of the Atlantic ocean, the Copa America oppose those of the American continent and this year it will be the United States to host the competition.

The last edition took place last year in Chile and saw the host country to win the prestigious cup facing the unlucky Argentina. The Albiceleste team, a year later, dream a revenge, a likely fifth victory of the Copa America, and on this occasion, the Argentina team will have a new kit hoping it will bring them luck at this centennial edition.
The shirt presents the colors of Argentina’s flag on the back of the neck and the three white stripes along the sides. Once again, the light blue and white stripes stand out with matching black details on the fists and neck, reflecting the headline shirts’ tradition and style throughout the Team’s history.
And finally, an embroidered badge is seen showing the initials and founding date of the Argentinian Football Association, along two stars representing their World Cup wins.
