Boca Juniors start the new year with a big celebration. Nike unveiled new Boca Juniors limited edition football kit, which celebrates the 105 years since the founding of the club.
The year was 1905 when a group of Italian immigrants who were part of a football team in La Boca neighborhood, decided to found the club Boca Juniors, without suspecting that, over time, it would become one of the biggest clubs in Argentina.
The name was not something that was hard to define, from the beginning, all agreed to honour their neighbourhood. The choice of colours, however, was the subject of discussions that ended solved through choosing the colours of the flag of the first ship that arrived at the port of La Boca, which was yellow and blue of the flag of Sweden.
To celebrate this 105th anniversary, Nike (Boca Juniors kit manufacturer since 1995) designed a football shirt, limited edition, which commemorates the Swedish flag that inspired the founders of the club. This game jersey has advanced technology, Dri-Fit, which significantly reduces the flow of body moisture.
