This is the new Velez Sarsfield third jersey 2016, a special edition strip made for Argentine club Club Atletico Velez Sarsfield by their kit partners Umbro. Officially revealed on 11 April, 2016, the shirt celebrates the 100th anniversary of the first time Velez wore the famous tricolour (1916)- a red, green and white jersey that took inspiration from the Italian flag and paid homage to the nationality of the club’s founders. Hitachi are the principal sponsors of this new 3rd shirt.
Velez now wear blue and white (with the v), but the third kit is often designed as a reminder of the club’s origins.
The likes of Jose Luis Chilavert, Mauro Zarate and Nicolas Otamendi have plied their trade for Velez in the past.
