Special-Edition FC Nantes Emiliano Sala Tribute Kit Released + Girondins Bordeaux Tribute

Update: Girondins Bordeaux will also pay tribute in memory of Emiliano Sala in the match against Nantes. Their Puma 2020-21 third kit will have the Argentinian flag and Emiliano Sala's initials ES on the front between the logos.

French club Nantes have launched an Argentina-inspired white-and-blue kit that they will wear against Bordeaux this weekend in memory of Emiliano Sala. Sala, who was about to join Cardiff, died in a plane crash over the English Channel one year ago today, 21 January 2019.

This is the one-off FC Nantes kit to honor Emiliano Sala.

Inspired by the trademark look of the Argentinian national team, the Nantes kit is white with subtle blue striping, based on the New Balance 2019-20 template.

Limited to 800 pieces, all proceeds from the sale of the shirts will go to Emiliano Sala's two youth teams in Argentina, San Martín de Progreso and Club Proyecto Crecer.
