C.A. River Plate's away kit is sometimes sky blue jersey, black shorts and socks. This kit was adopted by the Uruguay national football team in 1910 as a homage to the disbanded River Plate F.C. (four times champions of Uruguay) who defeated the best team of the Americas at the time, the Argentine team Alumni. Thus, the worldwide known "celeste" jersey was taken by the national team from the club away kit. Before 1910 Uruguay wore several jerseys including dark blue, green, striped white and sky blue, similar to that of Argentina among others.
