This is the new Independiente Santa Fe jersey 2016, Colombian club Santa Fe’s new home and away/alternate tops for the 2016 season, made by Umbro. Santa Fe won the Copa Sudamericana in 2015, beating Huracan on penalties in Bogota after both the home and away legs finished goalless. The kits celebrate the club’s 75th anniversary and were officially unveiled on 8 January, 2016.
Santa Fe have been with Umbro since 2009, when the Double Diamond brand took over from German manufacturers Puma.
This season’s home shirt sees Umbro employ a round neck look, with a predominantly red body and white sleeves. It’s not too dissimilar to Arsenal’s uniform, and there’s a historical connection to this similarity. One of Santa Fe’s founders, Luis Robledo, was a fan of the Gunners when he studied at Cambridge
On the back and on the side of the jersey are the words “Somos Santa Fe De Bogota”
Chinese telecommunications firm Huawei will continue as principal shirt sponsors for 2016.
