Uruguay 2018 Shirts



The Uruguayan national football team played their first international match against Argentina in Montevideo, Uruguay on the 16th May 1901 going down 3-2.

Uruguay were the first winners of the World Cup, beating Argentina 4-2 as hosts in 1930. They also won in 1950 when Brazil hosted the finals. Uruguay came first in the inaugural Copa America tournament in 1916 and have 14 Copa America wins to date.

Diego Forlan holds the record for the most number of caps with over 100 and Luis Suarez holds the record for the most number of goals with over 35.

Uruguay are one of the most dominant South American nations as they have won two World Cups and 15 Copa America/South American Championship titles. The current roster boasts several bug names including Diego Forlan, Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani. They play in sky blue home shirts with black shots manufactured by Puma.

World Cup Kits

Uruguay currently wear sky blue shirts which have trademarked their history as a football nation. Completed with black shorts and socks, Uruguay's kit has remained unchanged since the very first World Cup in 1930. Uruguay's 2014 World Cup home kit was inspired by Uruguay’s national flag and their nickname (La Celsete). A subtle is a print of the May Sun behind the crest which is a national emblem and feature on the national flag and the shirt is completed with black shorts and sky blue socks.

The 2014 World Cup away kit for Uruguay is white with sky blue trim featuring the same template as the home shirt but with a different collar. Unveiled by Atletico Madrid’s Cristian Rodriguez the new shirt is complemented with white shorts and socks.

For Uruguay's famous 1930 and 1950 World Cup triumphs sky blue shirts were apparent along with thick white detailing around both collar and sleeves. The kit used in 1930 featured a traditional white collar with the same coloured sleeve hems.

In 1990 Uruguay introduced a thick white stripe on both arms and by 2002, white had largely disappeared from what was almost a completely sky blue kit, before black became the secondary shirt's colour for the first time in 2010.

The nation's most well known kit would be the deep white V-neck colour of 1950 featuring thick white bands at the ends of the sleeves, proved the basis upon which the next few decades of Uruguay shirt were based. With the team having claimed World Cup glory, it is a shirt that remains close to the hearts of the Uruguay population.

Other notable kits include the one used at the 2010 FIFA World Cup where La Celeste wore sky blue home shirts with black trim, a colour scheme which placed white as the nation's third colour. The teams famously reached the semi-finals of the tournament and the side featured the likes of Uruguay legends Diego Forlan, Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani.

Uruguay have used several kit suppliers in their history including adidas and Le Coq Sportif in the 80's, Puma and Uhlsport in the 90's and Puma again in the 00's.
