World Cup Kits

Colombia or the 'Coffee Growers' trialled several different colour schemes early on in their footballing history. It took until 1994 at the World Cup before Colombia settled with a yellow shirt. The Coffee Growers home shirt for the 2014 World Cup is primarily yellow with a dark blue diagonal band across the chest as well as thin diagonal pinstripes while the away shirt is red with white trim on the signature adidas stripes and dark blue hoops is featured on the sleeves. Colombia’s 2014 away shirt is predominantly red featuring dark blue and white trim on the collar, shoulders, sleeve hems and branding.

Colombia's World Cup away shirt is predominantly red featuring dark blue and white trim on the collar, shoulders, sleeve hems and branding. adidas' signature three stripes are coloured white while the collar uses dark blue and white colours. The away shirt will be complemented with dark blue shorts and red socks.

Colombia's first World Cup appearances was in 1962 where they played with a dark blue home shirt with white shorts and blue socks. The first time yellow appeared on the home shirts was in the 1980's.

Only appearing in four World Cups Colombia have now developed a heavy reputation for having a yellow home shirt with dark blue shorts and red socks.

One of Colombia's most memorable kits was the one used at the 1994 World Cup in USA. It featured a bright yellow base with a royal blue collar and a unique pattern on the front. The shirt was worn by Colombia legends Carlos Valderrama, Leonel Sanchez, Faustino Asprilla and Freddy Rincon.

Colombia's kits have been supplied by many sportswear brands including Le Coq Sportif in the early 90's, adidas in the mid 80's, Puma in 1987, Kelme in 1991, Comba in 1992, Umbro in the mid 90's, Reebok in the late 90's and early 00's Lotto in the mid 00's and then back to adidas in 2011.

Unlike most football nations Colombia have tried and tested several home colours including dark blue, sky blue, orange, red, white and yellow shirts in their history as a football nation.
