It’s no secret that we pride ourselves on being the only brand in the world offering footwear, apparel, and accessories designed exclusively for the runner. Occasionally, however, we do make exceptions. . .
Brooks is proud to sponsor the Chilean National Soccer team at the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™—their seventh World Cup appearance. Chile finished second in their World Cup qualifications group, second only to Brazil. In 1962, Chile was honored to host the FIFA World Cup and finished third.
The Brooks Chile World Cup Jersey was designed with advanced materials and the local taste of the Chilean players in mind.
Using a more intense red compared to the team’s previous jersey, it carries unique markings inside the neckline that read “Con Futbol Todos Ganamos,” meaning “With Soccer Everyone Wins." A strong copper color accent was added to celebrate Chile’s rich natural resources such as copper. The jersey’s numbers are two-colored white and copper, similar to the style used by the European teams.
Brooks developed advanced jersey fabrics especially for Chile’s World Cup jersey. The first base fabric is a highly durable, 100% polyester Jacquard with elastic stretch. The fabric’s exterior uses micro pores while the inside uses a panel-cell construction to maximize moisture management. This construction, together with the “Aircool” fiber technology, allows for rapid evaporation of sweat by pulling moisture from the fabric’s larger surface-area inner cells and ventilating through the exterior pores. The result is a 30% improvement in the acceleration of moisture wicking.
A second technical fabric with a mesh construction is strategically placed around seams and high-perspiration areas. This allows for maximum air circulation which helps regulate the body temperature and keeps the player cool and comfortable.
