Querétaro 09/10 Home Soccer Jersey

There are few things we get excited about more here at WSS than getting gear for a team we've never carried before. That is exactly why we're super psyched to bring you - for the first time ever - the Official Pirma Querétaro 09/10 Home Soccer Jersey!

About Querétaro Fútbol Club

In 1949, the Mexican Soccer Federation proposed the idea of creating a "Segunda Division" to grow interest in the game and to create a development program for the first division. Querétaro was one of the cities that received an invitation to participate. Alfonso "pachín" Niembro, then president of the Asociación Queretana de Fútbol, and Raúl Ayala, who represented Querétaro at the national level, with help from large numbers of locally based amateurs, decided to organize a tournament, the winner of which would represent the city of Queretaro in the new division. The tournament was won by a team named "Los Piratas", who became "Club Querétaro A.C." They joined Irapuato, Zacatepec, Toluca, Morelia and La Piedad as the founders of the Segunda División. The team's official foundation date was July 8, 1950. Later journalist Herrera "periquín" Pozas bestowed the nickname of Gallos Blancos (White Roosters) based on the club's "willingness to fight for every ball" and their characteristic white uniforms. The team quickly developed a large local fan-base.

About the Jersey

The shirt is a very sharp black with nice undulating royal blue stripes down the front, flanked by cool mesh strips the rise toward the shoulders. It features a polo-style collar, the embroidered team crest over the heart, and Pirma logo on the center chest.
