Boca Juniors 105th Anniversary kit leaked

These seem to be leaked pictures of the new 10/11 Boca Juniors 105th Anniversary kit made by Nike.

On 3 April 1905, five Italian immigrants gathered in the Plaza Solís, located in the heart of the La Boca neighborhood of Buenos Aires. Esteban Baglietto, Alfredo Scarpati, Santiago Sana, and brothers Juan and Teodoro Farenga founded Boca Juniors, the use of English language in team names was commonplace, as British railway workers had originally introduced association football into Argentina.

 

The original jersey colour was pink, which was quickly abandoned for thin black-and-white vertical stripes.The legend has it that in 1906 Boca played another team that used these colours, to decide who would get to keep them. Boca lost, and decided to adopt the colours of the flag of the first boat to subsequently sail into the port at La Boca which was the 4146 ton freighter Drottning Sophia, sailing from Copenhagen.

As the boat was from Sweden, yellow and blue were adopted as the new team colours. The first version had a yellow diagonal band, which was later changed to a horizontal stripe.

Good kit<br /><br />Would have looked cleaner with only the boca stripe. However this kits ideas have been well done. I think the socks look abit dodgy.

I wonder how would look the kit, if that ship, back in 1906, was British or... Brazilian ; P

Nothing special in terms of design but the colour scheme works well

Looks fake. But may be a way to steal money of the crappy boca supporters. The away kit was a major fail, they simply despite the model and the bad idea of put the sponsor with the River Plate Colours...anyway i think they NEVER USE THE KIt, because Boca change the kit ...4 o 5 times in a whole season, because the smaller teams want to chenge them to show the away kits. In Argentina the home team change the kit not the away, but allways arrange them is not a inflexible rule.

 

That's a great kit and a true tribute to their history.

This is a wonderful kit. Lets hope they can resist the urge to plaster it with sponsors.
