Chile to Wear "KS7" Kits in 2022 World Cup Qualifiers - Escalation of Nike Dispute
In case you missed it, Chile wore special kits with the Nike logos patched up both at the Copa America and the Tokyo 2020 Olympics this summer.
It's set to change in the triple-header against Brazil, Ecuador and Colombia in early September as the kits worn then will reportedly be supplied by KS7, a US-based brand that was founded by Chileans Alejandro Sanhueza Philimon and Jacqueline Alcalde Sepulveda.
KS7 have a strong connection with Chilean sports and for example supplied uniforms for the Chile Davis Cup team (tennis) as well as the providing the referee kits in the Chilean league. A few Chilean football teams are sponsored by them as well, including Cobresal, Iberia, Osorno and Universidad de Concepción.

Continuing the report, the KS7 Chile 2022 World Cup Qualifiers kit is set to not feature any visible brand logo, although the "intention" is for it to be available for sale following the matches.
Inspired by the news, Chilean football kit content creator @ChileKits created a mock-up of what a possible KS7 Chile home kit could look like - please keep in mind that the actual one should come without any brand logo.
