Today we can confirm that CONCACAF side Costa Rica will wear Italian brand Lotto for the World Cup in Brazil next year.

Lotto renewed their contract with FEDEFUTBOL (Costa Rica FA) and they will continue outfitting all national teams until 2018. It also means that all rumours that said adidas was taking over starting in 2015 are quashed.

The side automatically qualified for the 2014 FIFA Cup by coming second in the CONMEBOL qualification table behind United States and ahead of Honduras and Mexico. With the nation’s best finish in a World Cup being in 1990 they will be looking to repeat that success in next year’s tournament. Lotto also supply kits to Costa Rica rivals Panama who failed qualification to the World Cup on the last round of the qualification stages losing to the United States 3-2.

To confirm this, Lotto just launched a commemorative kit pictured above based on the one that was premièred in the 1990 World Cup against Brazil and Sweden and will be worn on all pre-World Cup friendlies barring the very last one prior to departing to Brazil (mid to late May), in which the World Cup kit will be premièred instead. The white and black away kit makes a courageous return where Costa Rica wore white and blue away kits in previous major tournaments.

  1. All previous incarnations of the white/black striped kit were worn with white shorts; except for the Reebok offshoots (they were white and black but not striped) worn for the France ’98 qualifiers, which were worn with black shorts.
