With their qualification fixtures for the 2014 World Cup set to begin once again next month, Peru have unveiled their new home shirt, tailored by Umbro. The South American giants have once again looked to the history of their nation and their heritage on the football pitch for inspiration, combining to create a modern shirt that will inspired both players and fans.
The white shirt features the red sash across both the front and back of the shirt, an iconic part of Peru’s football shirts for a number of years.
The shirt also features a sun symbol embroidered on the back of the neck, a subtle reference to the ancient civilizations that were the founding fathers of what is known as Peru today. The shirt, which is crafted from a comfortable and lightweight cotton/polyester blend, also features a ribbed red and white striped v-neck collar, offering comfort and movement to the wearer.
Overall, the shirt continues a fine series of designs that Umbro
have tailored for Peru, and we’re sure the team will look smart when they step
out in the new kits for their game against Venezuela on 7th September. If we
hear of any ways that you can purchase the new shirts here in the UK or in
Europe, we’ll be sure to let you know!
