Peru have unveiled their new 2012-13 home shirt, tailored by Umbro, and to be worn for their qualification fixtures for the 2014 World Cup set to begin once again next month. The South American giants have looked to the history of their nation and their heritage on the football pitch for inspiration, combining to create a modern shirt designed to inspire both players and fans.
The white shirt features the red sash across both the front and back of the shirt, an iconic part of Peru’s football shirts for a number of years. The shirt also features a sun symbol embroidered on the back of the neck, a subtle reference to the ancient civilizations that were the founding fathers of what is known as Peru today.
The new Peru Home shirt 2012, which is crafted from a comfortable and lightweight cotton/polyester blend, also features a ribbed red and white striped v-neck collar, offering comfort and movement to the wearer, along with the text "Inti pa sinchi"(Warriors of the Sun) on its inner neck line.
The new Peru soccer jersey continues a series of designs that Umbro have tailored for Peru, and will be first worn by the likes of Juan Manuel Vargas for their game against Venezuela on 7th September.
