15 Copa América Titles. 2 FIFA World Cups. 2 Summer Olympics gold medals. And one very prestigious Mundialito title in 1980. A total of twenty (20) official titles make the Uruguayan National Football Team the holder of the most global titles held by a country. Indeed, La Celeste Olimpica is the football team to beat.
Van Goal recognizes this greatness from the smallest member nation of CONMEBOL, the South American Football Association. They say international soccer success requires three things: population, income and experience. So how come Los Charrúas, coming from a small nation of less than four million people (roughly the size of Los Angeles), produced so many football heroes? Success comes from all of the above and so much more. With every goal is the heart of every football fan.
This design is to honor the stars of not only Uruguay but the world’s football history. A simple no-frills shirt speaks of the heart of a true fan. Truly, stats have shown that football owed a great debt to Uruguay and its national team. The team has revolutionized the way football has been played – short passes and crafted movements – in contrast to the rugged plays back in the day. And with their loyal following and respect from sports fans all over the world, La Celeste has continued to reign supreme.
