Uruguay will arrive in Russia as one of the dark horses for the 2018 World Cup, and PUMA’s best shot of getting their hands on the ultimate footballing trophy. Chasing the prize in pride, Uruguay have revealed their PUMA 2018 World Cup home shirt that incorporates the Sol de Mayo into its design.
The elimination of Italy in the qualifying stage leaves PUMA with just Uruguay and Switzerland as 2018 World Cup nations, and both nations have been equipped in style. We’ve certainly seen an uprise in the bespoke game ahead of the World Cup and Uruguay’s home shirt doesn’t disappoint, with a striking interpretation of the Sol de Mayo featuring across the shirt, inspired by Carlos Paez Vilaro’s illustration of the iconic symbol.
Drenched in their trademark ‘Celeste’ blue, the shirt also features subtle details incorporated into the shirt. A nod to the National Pavilion features underneath the back of the collar, whilst inside the sleeve is the inscription ‘La Celeste’ (‘The Light Blues’) and the hashtag #ELEQUIPOQUENOSUNE (‘The team who unites us’) can be found on underside of the bottom of the shirt.
