Chile 2018 Shirts



Chile Shirt on eBay

The Chilean national football team played their first international against Argentina in Buenos Aires, Argentina on the 27th of May 1910 losing 3-1. Chile play their home games wearing red shirts with blue shorts and white socks. The South American's best World Cup finish is third place in 1962, when the finals were in their home country. Chile beat Yugoslavia 1-0 in the third place match. Chile also have the unenviable reputation of having been banned from the World cup in 1994 following an incident over a firework in a qualifier with Brazil.

Leonel Sanchez holds the record for the most number of caps with 84 followed by Nelson Tapia with 74 and Marcelo Salaz holds the record for the most goals with 37 followed by Ivan Zamorano with 34.

The nation have appeared in the FIFA World Cup on several occasions where they came 3rd place in the 1962 tournament which was also hosted in Chile.

Nicknamed 'La Roja' meaning the Red One, Chile currently play in the CONMEBOL confederation playing their home matches in red shirts, blue shorts and white socks. The nations last appeared in a major tournament at the 2011 Copa America where they topped Group C containing Uruguay, Peru and Mexico and they ended up losing to Venezuela 2-1 in the quarter-finals.

World Cup Kits

Chile's first appearance at a World Cup was in 1930 where they wore red, blue and white colours from their national flag. These colours have been used ever since. Chile's kit for the 2014 World Cup has seen their trademark red base featured along with blue and white trim on the collar, sides and sleeves. The away shirt uses the same template as the 2014 home shirt but with a white base and red and blue trim.

For the 1950 World Cup Chile wore a red shirt with blue shorts and white socks. This has been the most commonly seen display for Chile in their footballing history.

With adidas taking over the production of Chile shirts in 1974 their signature white stripes were added to the shirts. On their next appearance in 1998 two white slashes across the front were the main alteration before a more simple design with narrow white trim was implemented for the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa.

One of Chile's most memorable kits was the home shirt used in 1962 which also resulted in their best ever performance at a World Cup coming third. The shirt featured a red base along with a collar and classic looking crest.

In terms of away kits Chile have most commonly opted for a white colouration with red and blue trim. The odd yellow away shirt was included in the mid 90's but white has been the long term choice for the Chileans. The Chile away shirt for the 2014 World Cup uses the same template as the home shirt but coloured in an elegant white along with red and blue trim on the collar, sleeve hems and sides. Like on the home shirt the first line of the Chilean national anthem is printed on the back of the neck inside the shirt.

Chile have had several kit suppliers in their history as a football nation including adidas in the 70's, Puma and adidas in the 80's, Umbro in the early 90's, Avia and Reebok in the mid to late 90's, back to Umbro in the early 00's then Brooks in in the mid to late 00's and then Puma from 2011 onwards.

Nicknamed 'The Red One' or 'La Roja' Chile have one of the most recognised red home shirts in world football. The current crop of Chilean footballers including Alexis Sanchez, Arturo Vidal, Mauricio Isla and Matias Fernandez make them one of the best Chilean football teams ever.
