Nike honors Club América's nearly century-long history and bright future with new home and away kits.
CLUB AMÉRICA HOME KIT 2015-16
Celebrating the 50th anniversary of its 1965-66 league championship, Club América will take the pitch this season in a new pale yellow home kit that references the uniform worn during the historic victory.
Along with the storied hue, the home shirt boasts a modern V-neck collar trimmed at the back with a red and navy blue band. Matching yellow socks also feature a navy blue band at the top and the club’s initials “CA” on the shin.
CLUB AMÉRICA AWAY KIT 2015-16
The away shirt is light blue at the top and transitions to a darker shade toward the hem. Additionally, it references the club’s reputation for nurturing young talent at its academy named El Nido (the Nest) via a feather graphic that recalls the club’s mascot, an eagle.
The new kits are available July 22 on the Nike Football App and July 23 at select Nike retailers.
Proud symbols of club heritage, the new kits are also progressive. They offer the latest in Nike performance innovation, fabric technology, moisture management and environmental sustainability.
NIKE Dri-FIT Technology
Nike Dri-FIT technology draws sweat away from the body to the exterior of the jersey and short, where it quickly evaporates, keeping players cooler, drier and more comfortable.
Laser-cut ventilation holes and mesh panels in key areas are designed to improve performance by increasing air circulation and helping regulate body temperature.
The jersey features engineered mesh fabric in both its front and back panels to increase airflow and facilitate enhanced movement.
Nike places sustainable innovation at the heart of its kits through the use of recycled polyester, delivering unrivaled performance and lower environmental impact.
Each piece of the kit – shirt, shorts and socks – is constructed with recycled polyester, which is made from recycled plastic bottles melted down to produce a fine yarn then used to create the fabric. Each kit uses an average of 18 recycled plastic bottles. Since 2010, Nike has diverted more than two billion plastic bottles from landfills into recycled
By using recycled polyester, Nike is also reducing the energy consumed in the manufacturing process by up to 30 percent compared to virgin polyester. For more information, visit nikebetterworld.com.
