New Brazil home and away kits: Leaked designs include commemorative 1919 shirt
Leaked images of Brazil’s new home and away strip for the Copa America have circulated online, which includes a special 100th anniversary shirt to celebrate the country’s 1919 Copa America title success.
The home strip, far more diverse and stylish than in previous years, was confirmed by none other than Neymar’s barber, Wagner Tenório.

Although the new home jersey is based on an updated version of the 2018 Vapor template, it does feature a unique collar and matching sleeve cuffs.
Just like on the 2018 World Cup shirt, there is a green-blue-green tape on the inside neck and on the upper back, while the new Nike authenticity tag sits on the bottom left above the hem.
The overall design, and particularly the collar of the new shirt, appears to have been inspired by the 1950 World Cup jersey – as well as the 2013 Confederations Cup kit.

Elsewhere, the away kit will combine the main colour of white with blue applications, just as the jersey looked up until the 1950 World Cup final defeat.
The commemorative 1919 strip is almost certainly likely to be worn at this year’s Copa America, while it could be used in other international fixtures this year.
