Never Used Again After The Tragic 1950 World Cup Loss - Nike to Release White / Blue Brazil Kit in 2019

In April 2018, rumors afloat that Nike could release a white Brazil kit for the 2019 Copa America to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the country's first Copa America title. Now we have received concrete information about the white and blue Nike Brazil 2019 jersey, which is set to be used in the 2019 Copa America and possibly also in other fixtures in 2019.

Brazil's yellow and green shirt is one of the most iconic football shirts there is in football. However, Brazil had not always been wearing yellow and green kits - before their tragic loss against Uruguay in the 1950 World Cup final, the home jersey of Brazil national team was white and blue.

The famous yellow and green Brazil home kit design only came about through a national competition held after it was decided that their then standard white kit with blue trim had to be forgotten in the aftermath of Brazil losing the 1950 World Cup at home to Uruguay.

Brazil to Release White / Blue Kit For 2019 Copa America

A special jersey to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the 1919 Copa America title, the Brazil 2019 Nike jersey will combine the main color white with blue applications, just as the jersey the national team wore until their 1950 World Cup final defeat.

Brazil's 2019 Copa America gear has the same colors as the white and blue Brazil 2019 Copa America jersey.

Nike previously already released unusual black third jerseys for the Brazil national team. However, these jerseys were never worn by the team as the federation's rules do not allow them to wear any other colors than yellow / green (home) and blue (away).

It is almost certain that Brazil will wear the white and blue kit in the 2019 Copa America. It could be also used in other international fixtures in 2019.

The white / blue Nike Brazil 2019 jersey is officially called Nike Brazil 2019 Copa America jersey, set for a release in January 2019.
