Like other New Balance uniforms for Costa Rica (motivated by the country's renowned biodiversity), the Centenario jersey is partially made with recycled materials. Its fabric is made with NB Dry technology, which offers quick drying and guarantees optimal performance for players on the field. With elegant elements, it also presents a shield that evokes important dates in its history. 

Rodolfo Villalobos, President of the Costa Rica Football Federation, assured that this clothing is an essential component in the celebrations for the hundred years. "We are very pleased to present the official Centennial jersey, which combines valuable elements such as the historical richness of our football and our attachment to the conservation of nature, a value that is rooted in the Costa Rican people and our organisation."
