The stylish home kit from River Plate’s title-winning 1996-97 season. The club won their 27th and 28th league titles in each of the “Apertura” and “Clausura” phases of Argentina’s Primera División. They also reached the Semi-Finals of the Copa Libertadores, but narrowly lost to Brazilian club Vasco da Gama, who went on to become champions of the continental competition.
River Plate are known as La Banda or “the stripe” for the distinct style of this same kit. In 1996, this shirt became part of a longstanding club tradition of home kits with a single vibrant red diagonal stripe across the body. This sleek design also incorporates the River Plate badge, which is displayed prominently on the chest and printed in repeating patterns throughout the body of the shirt. This design is an iconic look from South American 90’s football fashion.
This jersey has been remade with impeccable attention to detail. It features the same collar, sleeving, ridges and embroidery as the original.
Printing is done in the original style, as close to the authentic font and colour as possible. If the jersey originally had the number printed on the front we will print this unless instructed otherwise.
Please check the measurements carefully as most people find they require a size up. The jerseys have a slim or muscle fit.
