For nearly one hundred years, Club América has constantly proven itself as one of the best clubs in Mexico. Las Águilas have soared to the occasion numerous times, leading to a large collection of trophies and awards, including eleven league titles, five CONCACAF Champions’ Cup wins, the predecessor to the Champions League format, and two Copa Interamericana wins, which used to pit CONCACAF’s club champion against the Copa Libertadores winner.
From the turn of the 21st Century, American sportswear giant Nike has supplied Club América’s kits. This season’s home kit takes a look back to the classic cream shirts from the club’s foundation. A conservative, yet elegant pale yellow shirt with a polo collar is the jersey. The badge comes in a monochrome navy, with a navy Nike swoosh on the opposite side. The pennant tab on the inner collar comes in navy, with an image of an eagle, for Las Águilas’ nickname. The shorts are navy, with pale yellow socks.
Club América’s away kit comes in navy with pale yellow. A modified crew neck collar with v-neck inset replaces the classic polo collar on the home kit. Pale yellow appears on the shirt’s sleeve cuffs, Nike swoosh logo and monochrome badge on the chest. The inner collar has a pale yellow pennant tab, with the message, “Ódiame Más ,” “Hate me More.” The shorts are in navy with a pale yellow stripe on each side, and the socks come in navy with a pale yellow Nike swoosh. The two primary sponsors, Mexican bread company Bimbo and Coca-Cola, are present on the front of the shirts.
