World Cup Kits
Costa Rica's football kit has used the nation's flag colours as the basis of the design. A red shirt with blue shorts and red socks is the most commonly seen combination for the Central American nation. Supplied by Italian brand Lotto Sport Italia, the 2014 World Cup Costa Rica home kit features their trademark red colour along with blue trim on the collar, sleeve hems and sides. The shirt features a unique design on the front where the blue colour is stamped on the front diagonally. The shirt is complemented with blue shorts and red socks.
Costa Rica's away kit for the 2014 World Cup features the same template as the Costa Rica home shirt but coloured in white with red trim. The away kit features white shorts and socks.
Costa Rica matched their red shirt with both white and blue shorts on their debut FIFA World Cup appearance in 1990 along with alterations needed due to a clash with those of Scotland.
On both appearances at the event it has been blue shorts and white socks that have been the standard accompaniment. Unique features have been added to the shirt over time including a blue collar in 2002 and a white and blue streak across the chest in 2006.
One of the most memorable away kits by Costa Rica is the Juventus-styled black and white striped shirt used in 1990. This shirt was complemented with white shorts and socks. After 1997 the striped kit was scrapped for a plain white shirt with blue shorts.
Including their current kit supplier by Lotto Sport Italia, Costa Rica have had several manufacturers such as Reebok in the 90's and Atletica and Joma in the 00's. Italian brand Lotto took over Joma in 2009.
The basics of the kit have remained largely untouched since Costa Rica's first international. Being one of the most inexperienced nations in terms of World Cups the side have a tough group at next year's World Cup where they have to play Uruguay, England and Italy.
