Peru: Alianza Lima unveil their 2017 Nike Football Kits honouring ‘Los Potrillos’

Alianza Lima and Nike Peru have officially launched their new football kits for the 2017 season. The kits pays tribute to the Alianza Lima squad, affectionately referred to as Los Potrillos,  that tragically lost its life in 1987, when the plane they were travelling on crashed into the sea.

Alianza Lima are considered to be one of the most successful teams in Peruvian football, having won the Peruvian national league title 22 times, their most recent success being in 2006.

The Nike logo is featured in dark blue on the top right part of the chest with the club crest on the opposite side.


For their away fixtures, Alianza Lima will play in an all-black kit with turquoise detail.
