Universitario de Deportes, also referred to as Universitario or La U, is the most popular and successful football club in Peru, and they unveiled their new home and away 09/10 kits made by Umbro. 

Universitario's colours are cream (called crema in Spanish), red, burgundy (called guinda in Spanish), and black. When playing a home game they use the crema-coloured kit with black socks and when playing away they use the burgundy-coloured kit with black socks.

 The club's colours at first were not crema. They started out with a white kit which had the badge on the chest. During one of their early seasons, Universitario could not participate in an upcoming match because their uniforms had been sent to the laundry to be washed.

The managers pleaded that they hurry with the laundry and they quickly washed them. However, when the club received the jerseys, they found that they were no longer white, but yellow.

The laundry workers had forgotten to remove the badges from the jerseys and consequently the red color from the badges mixed with the white jerseys giving it a yellow tint. The club had no choice but to use the jersey to play. They managed to win that game and a few others as well and thus the club kept the new-colored kit as a good-luck charm.

this is the old Umbro template, with the \'cuttings\' on the shoulder area and on top of the arms there are those diamond-shaped designs which also feature on the England away.


I love them, they\'re fantastic. Definitely will purchase their home if I can find it in the coming months.
