From the Bowery to BVB | Sick Kit Friday
Uruguayan side CD Nacional has a longstanding tradition when it comes to kits: paying homage to the Uruguay national team every September.114 Septembers ago, in 1907, Uruguay went to Buenos Aires and, with a team mostly made up of Nacional players, beat the Argentinians 3-2 to take home their first-ever victory. Thus, September belongs to both Uruguay and Nacional.This is this year’s national team-inspired kit:
Uruguay traditionally wears a baby blue jersey, and the red-white-and-blue collar and sleeve stripes bring in the Nacional colors to cleanly and easily combine the two clubs.
It's not an interesting geometrical design or color combination that makes Melbourne Victory’s away kit so special, but something completely unique: the Australian night sky. Staring at the top is basically the equivalent of stargazing.
The traditional V, a reflection of that in the club crest, splits the celestial graphic from the white bottom. The kit also features an new color for the first time: a pop of “energy red” to the collar and sleeve, breaking up the traditional dark blue and white.
Love or hate their yellow-and-black color scheme, Dortmund knows how to keep it interesting. For the 2017/18 Champions League, BVB will be rocking these sick kits that features a brushstroke-like black gradient all down the side. Think of it as their version of the Adidas three-stripe.And though their Champions League group stage run involves Real Madrid and won’t be as much of a cake-walk as others, they can rest assured they’ll be the most good-looking team in Group H.
