The jersey has a black v-neck collar with matching three stripes trim and cuffs on the sleeves. The back of the shirt has an arched stripe at the top with the tagline “el mas grande” (The Greatest) placed above the stripe at the nape.
The wonderful two-toned band comes across the shirt, with the badge placed over the heart of the jersey and within the design.
