Vélez Sársfield launched their new 08/09 season football kits made by Penalty. Velez foundation dates back to 1910.
It was on a rainy day when three lads sheltered in Vélez Sársfield Railway Station because of a summer storm. These three guys were Julio Guglielmone, Martin Portillo and Nicolas Martín Moreno.They themselves decided to establish a new club with the mere plan of joining and taking part in some league.
After the storm, the lads headed for Marin Moreno's house, which was a stone's throw from the railway station, the last call of the Buenos Aires Western Railway, which connected downtown with the 'far west'.
The guys, with the help of a bunch of other men, decided to establish Argentines of Velez Sarsfield Athletic Club(Club Atlético Argentinos de Velez Sarsfield) and appointed Luis Barredo as their first chairman. Their first field was the piece of land located at United Provincies St.-Provincias Unidas-, currently Juan Bautista Alberdi, Convention St, currently Jose Bonifacio, and Mariano Acosta and Ensenada.
After founding a club, a kit is needed. That was why they chose white shirts(they were easier to get). However, that kit was changed two years later. On February 3rd 1912 they chose navy blue shirts with white shorts.
