On May 29, 1966, Club America played its first match in its new home, Azteca Stadium, or “El Azteca,” which remains the only stadium in the world to have hosted two world championship finals (1970 and 1986). 50 years later, Nike honors the club’s storied past with a new kit in a bold wine color that commemorates the shade worn by Club America’s international rival when the teams met in the stadium for that inaugural game.
As the club’s current right wing Paul Aguilar explains, “This new kit is special, is unique, is sacred. It represents the history of the team in a different way and reminds us that Club America is destined for great things.”
The new away kit features Aztec patterns on the body, with a darker version of the burgundy shade over the shoulders and sleeves. On the chest, engineered knit zones create a geometric pattern that enhances fit. White shorts and burgundy socks complete the kit.
In addition to representing the Club’s legacy, the kit features the latest in Nike innovation and technology to improve the athlete’s performance.
