Spanish club Cultural Leonesa wear tuxedo-themed kit for charity match

Friday, August 1, 2014

Players of Spanish third-division club Cultural Leonesa donned a somewhat special tuxedo kit for a charity match on Wednesday.

It's unlikely that most football fans would have been aware of who the Spanish minnows were until last week, when they made headlines around the world with their tuxedo-themed kit.

A cross between formal evening-wear and a sporting outfit, the tuxedo-esque strip was specially designed by Danish firm Hummel to celebrate the club's 90th birthday, and it will only be used for pre-season.

The club will give 10 percent of the proceeds to charities for mining families based in the region of Leon where they are based.

Henning Nielsen, marketing manager for kitmaker Hummel, told CNN: "The club wanted to help the mining industry in the region, which is having some really tough times.

"We wanted to go in and explore the club's heritage and find what has local character, and incorporate that into the design.

"The club is celebrating its 90-year anniversary, so instead of having a formal reception with wine and drinks and snacks the club decided to do something... another way with a bit of character."
