PUMA has unveiled the Uruguay 2018 Home Jersey that they will be wearing in next summer's World Cup. The jersey features in the classic Celeste blue that has long been associated with Uruguay.
According to PUMA:
"Designed to reflect the passion of the fans and nation the shirt incorporates a striking interpretation of the Sol de Mayo inspired by Carlos Paez Vilaro’s illustration of the iconic symbol. This powerful image brings great pride to the nation and is the perfect motivation for players and fans alike to come together and rise above the opposition on the world’s biggest stage.
In addition, the shirt is engineered using PUMA’s highly developed evoKNIT Thermoregulation technology an enhanced moisture management and adaptive cooling system that helps create the perfect on-pitch body temperature. Combined with its seamless construction, the jersey offers the ultimate in fit and mobility for optimum performance.
Getting into the details you will notice engineered cooling fins in key zones on the shirt that act as channels regulating your bodies temperature, whilst dryCELL technology provides moisture management across the fabric with high performance yarns that wick sweat away from the body. All this is packaged into the seamless evoKNIT construction of the shirt that provides a lightweight ‘second skin’ feel so the fabric moves with the players body and not against it, allowing for better freedom of movement on the pitch."
