Red Bull Guadalajara commits to follow the tradition of signing Mexican players exclusively, as well as encouraging the youth talent not only by developing from within, but also by signing young players for the first team.
In line with the other Red Bull clubs, RB Tapatío will wear a white uniform with the Red Bull logo across the chest.
To contrast the white uniform, the alternative jersey will be red with white highlights.
In the second alternative jersey we reflect the identity of this beautiful city by wearing a colorful kit with blue and yellow halves, as seen on the flag of the city.
