Very timely men Adidas They took advantage of the (necessary) discussion on gender equality and decided to “pay tribute to her” in the alternative jersey of the Selection opting for purple. those of Nike a decade earlier. In December 2012 they unveiled a purple kit for Mouth to wear it on Women’s Day (March 8) or Mother’s Day (third Sunday in October) but finally the garment was released in January 2013 in the match against Racing in the summer tournament of Mar del Plata.

That means, purple is nothing new in Argentine shirts. Adidas itself wore that color River in the 2018 Super League against San Martín de San Juan in Núñez. There was a story: in the Metropolitano of 1969, River received Morón, whose clothes are white with a red horizontal band, so Núñez’s men changed. They used a set of shirts that Fiorentina He had given up three years earlier when he came to play a friendly for the national team and trained at Núñez.

In 1975 River had not been a champion in years and had to face Banfield at home. The shirts could be confused by the white background of both, so, as was customary at the time, the venue changed. Ángel Labruna believed that the tricolor was “mufa” and brought out the team dressed in purple, as in 1969.

River had already changed her clothes in 1949, but in maroon. A year earlier, Turin, five times Italian champions, had lost almost all of their squad in the Superga plane crash. President Liberti decided to play some matches of the local tournament with the substitutes and brought the owners to Turin for a friendly match in which they raised funds for the relatives of the victims. The Eternal Friendship match ended 2-2, with the goal of Labruna and Di Stéfano. Two years later Torino returned the courtesy, came to Buenos Aires and played another friendly by reversing the clothes. In the local competition, in the following years, River was repeatedly brown.

Banfield wore a short-lived purple and black suit while climbing in 997. Los Andes also wore the color a few times.

In August 1948 the film was released “rag ball”, directed by Leopoldo Torres Ríos and starring Armando Bo, with a screenplay by Borocotó. He narratedThe story of some guys who had a neighborhood team, Sacachispas and crack, Comeuñas, already a man, arrived in a great team but his career was frustrated because they detected heart disease. The film was a phenomenal and inspiring success. The Evita Tournaments were held and a team of Soldiers was baptized Sacachispas. They reached the semifinals and achieved so much fame that Perón and Evita watched the match.

The general asked where they played. “On the street,” one of the boys said. And then Perón donated the Soldati lands where the Sacachispas camp is currently located. The team immediately became a club: it was founded on October 17 of that year at the request of Borocotó himself. They had a field but they had no shirts and they asked one of the guys to choose the colors. And so the violet or lilac was born, because wisteria blossomed in that child’s house.

The Belgian Anderlecht is purple because its founders in 1908 were inspired by the flowers that adorned the carriage of Princess Sophia who would become queen the following year.

Toulouse was founded in 1970 and its colors were white and red. It was refounded in 1977 and then adopted the current viola. Alberto Márcico played there between 1985 and 1992 before returning to the country to join Boca.

Ronaldo Nazario Lima, el Gordo Ronaldo, is a shareholder of Real Valladolid whose jersey is purple and white with vertical sticks. A decade ago there was a great internal discussion because the brand that dressed the team made the purple weaker. Such was the pressure from partners and fans that they had to return to the tone of birth.

Sport Boys, from Peru, Austria Vienna, Mazatlán from Sinaloa, Alajuelense from Costa Rica and Al Ain from the United Arab Emirates, have also had purple shirts since their origin.

Madrid Football Club was founded on March 6, 1906. In 1920 Alfonso XIII gave it the name of Real. The club takes its current name and adds the crown to its shield, which disappears in 1931 when the purple sash is added in honor of Castile and the Republic. The crown reappears on the coat of arms in 1941 to the present day. And in the season that has just begun, the Real Madrid second kit is purple, as in 2016-17.

Fiorentina is the “purple team”. The original shirt, imported from the English textile workshops, was reddish. But when they were washed in the Arno, the red faded to purple. So they decided to adopt that color. Daniel Passarella and Gabriel Batistuta were the emblems of the club. “I love you Irina!” Bati exploded in front of the cameras after a goal. Unforgettable. He wore the “viola” de la Fiore. Club and color, even stimulating.

Daniel Bertoni joined the Tuscan club in 1980 after two seasons in Seville where he coincided with Héctor Scotta, a phenomenal former San Lorenzo scorer. The two attackers were very believers and Andalusia is a fertile land for men of faith. In 1981, Bertoni and Scotta commissioned image creator Luis Alvarez Duarte to create a Christ to be donated to the Cathedral of Buenos Aires. Archbishop Keegan blessed the image when it arrived in Buenos Aires. The original Christ prisoner, because his hands are tied, has been renamed Christ of the Calciatori and is usually taken out for the Easter procession. The image has long hair, dark skin and is covered in a purple dress.

Agostino Rocca founded in Campana the steel company Dálmine SAFTA (Argentine company of steel tubes), today Tenaris Siderca and part of the Techint Group. Businessmen decided that employees and workers should have a place for recreation and a place for various sports practices. Thus, on November 20, 1957, the Villa Dálmine club was born. Three years later he joined the Bell League and in 1961 he joined the AFA and began competing in the amateur category. It was necessary to make official shields, colors and designs of the shirts. They chose purple. The reason is simple. Rocca was a supporter of Fiorentina.
