The slogan “UNIDOS POR UN PAIS”, on the back of the collar, calls that all Colombians get together. Three stripes of Adidas, symbolizing victory, do not appear on shoulders in this design. On the contrary, eye-catching navy blue stripes are put on both sides of the body, bringing a new visual effect. The two red cuffs also show the uniqueness. The team logo and Adidas logo are necessary elements shown on the shirt.

Designers take advantage of Adizero technology to produce this lighter and more comfortable jersey, so that players in the game can perform rapidly and freely. The weight of the shirt is reduced by 10%, compared to the one in 2014. In addition, ultra-ventilated mesh fabric is used on the back of the shirt to help players in the game release heat quickly.

Navy blue shorts and red socks complete the kit, corresponding with the collar and cuffs.
