A well-known sports brand launched a search for the 1,703 «Diego Armando» born in 1981 with the intention of giving them a new Boca Juniors shirt, inspired by the one worn by the legendary Diego Armando Maradona when he won the title in the Argentine tournament of 1981.

«40 years of a magical history. An icon of world football is back. A story of love and passion for colors. From the neighborhood to the world ”, are the phrases that define the initiative that seeks to pay tribute to the ex-footballer, captain of the Argentine team that won the World Cup in Mexico-1986.

With 1,703 registrations, the year 1981 was the one with the most people baptized as ‘Diego Armando’ in the history of the South American country, indicated a statement from Adidas, the brand that dresses the popular auriazul club.

Maradona, Boca fanatic fan and owner of a private box in the mythical ‘La Bombonera’ stadium, died on November 25, 2020, at the age of 60, of a cardiorespiratory crisis, during a home stay where he was recovering from surgery to remove a bruise from his head.

Last Friday, the ‘xeneize’ club presented its new official shirt inspired by the one worn by Boca, champion of the Metropolitan tournament, a team in which a young 21-year-old Maradona shone, in the first steps of his successful career.

This official shirt is the one that each Diego Armando born in Argentina in 1981 will receive.

In June 1982 he was transferred to FC Barcelona, ​​and two years later to Napoli in Italy, where he became an absolute idol.
