The much-anticipated adidas Argentina Copa America 2011 home and away jerseys have officially been launched. Both kits are now available for purchase at World Soccer Shop and will be used by the team during the 2011/12 international season.
The new kits to be worn by the likes of team captain Javier Mascherano and reigning FIFA World Player of the Year Lionel Messi when the Albicelestes host the Copa America in July were launched online at lacamisetadetodos.com and the adidas Argentina national team Facebook page. Messi and Asociación Argentina de Fútbol president, Julio Grondona, participated in the virtual launch. The images shown in the event were taken by kit designer Martín Tibabuzo.
The unveiling of the Argentina Copa America 2011 home and away jerseys was also broadcast to onlookers via an outdoor big screen at the corner of Florida and Corrientes streets in Buenos Aires.
The Argentina 2011/12 home and away jerseys will be available in adidas TECHFIT™ PowerWEB and Climacool versions to both players and fans.
