Leaked: The Colombia 2016 Home Kit Will Be White

Colombia will sport a white home kit from 2016, ditching the iconic yellow shirt for now. Adidas and the Colombia national team will launch the new Colombia 2016 Home and Away Kits early next year, in time for the March 2016 matches.

The new Colombia 2016 Home Kit will also be used at the 2016 Copa America Centenario, should it take place. The centenary tournament is planned to be staged in the United States next summer.

Colombia 2016 Copa America Centenario Kit Will Be White

This is the Colombia 1973 Away Shirt, a possible inspiration for the next Colombia Shirt.

The white Colombia 2016 Jersey will boast navy and red applications in a "youthful and fresh" look, also incorporating the the colors of the Colombian flag. Shorts and socks are expected to be white with details in navy and red, too.

Colombia used to wear white home kits in the 1940s, while the color was also used for iconic away jerseys in the 1970s and 1980s. Colombia adapted a red-blue-yellow tricolor kit in 1985, only switching to the currently established yellow-blue-red in 1993.
