The Colombian jersey has been a
popular seller over the past decade as many football supporters adopt the
famous yellow jersey as their “second” team at international tournaments due to
the attacking flair of star players such as Faustino Asprilla, Radamel Falcao
and James Rodriguez. Colombia – and James in particular – were one of the star
turns of the 2014 World Cup, with the Monaco star earning a £60 million move to
Real Madrid off the back of his exciting performances.
Although the players wear the
national team shirt with pride, doing so does not come without danger. In 1994,
defender Andres Escobar was tragically shot and killed after his own goal
contributed to Colombia’s early exit at the 1994 World Cup in the United
States. This has not deterred players from playing for the national side though
and Colombian jerseys continue to sell well in recent years.
Colombia Home & Away Shirt
The home strip normally consists
of a yellow shirt which is worn with navy blue shorts and red socks. However,
this has not always been the case and indeed there have been a number of
colours adopted as the home jersey throughout Colombia’s history.
The first Colombian shirt, worn
in 1938 was actually sky blue in colour. In 1957, they wore a dark blue home
jersey during their first appearance at the South American Championships. In
1971, they wore an orange jersey which was similar to that of the Netherlands.
In the 1980s and early 1990s, the
shirt was predominantly red. Indeed, the colour yellow did not appear on the
kits until it was used as an away kit in the 1980’s.
It was not until 1993, when they
partnered with English brand Umbro, that they began adopting the yellow home
kit. This was worn in the 1994 World Cup appearance and has since been the
official colour scheme of the national team, in keeping with the country’s
For the 2016 Copa America, Adidas
released a commemorative white jersey.
The Colombian away shirt is now
navy blue in colour and features red and yellow detailing in keeping with the
Colombia Shirt History
The first commercial Colombian
soccer jersey was manufactured and released by Le Coq Sportif in 1980. Adidas
were the next partner, but it was the partnership with Umbro between 1993-1997
which really put the Colombian strips on the map.
Reebok took over the contract in
1997, supplying the 1998 World Cup before Italian sportswear brand Lotto
produced the 2003 FIFA Confederations Cup jersey, which started a partnership
that would last until 2010 when Adidas regained the contract.
In November 2013, Adidas producsed an alternative design for the home kit which featured yellow and blue white stripes, however this proved extremely unpopular with supporters.
