The Mexican Football Federation (FMF) announced on Friday, July 8, its new home jerseys for the Mexican national team to wear at the 2022 World Cup, slated to take place in Qatar from Nov. 21 to Dec. 18.
The new uniform of the national team is inspired by one of the main gods of the ancient Aztec civilization: Quetzalcóatl, the feathered serpent.
Considered the god of life and the creator of all humanity, Quetzalcóatl´s unique strength will help to inspire the team to overcome all obstacles in the world’s greatest sports tournament and go further than ever before, said Adidas, the German sportswear company that designed the shirts, in a press release.
The design highlights the image of the god Quetzalcóatl, with feathers on his neck and the body of a snake, symbolizing the duality of human nature so characteristic of pre-Hispanic cultures.
Likewise, the new shirts encompass a return to the traditional green color that identifies Mexico in all corners of the world.
The neck of the new shirt is round with red stripes, and the back recalls the plumage of Quetzalcóatl.
Made from 100 percent recycled materials, the professional version of the jersey incorporates materials with special Adidas technology to keep players cool and dry on the pitch.
Created by adidas in collaboration with the FMF, both the professional players’ version of the jersey and replicas for fans are available for sale online and at authorized adidas and FMF stores.
