FC Juarez Releases Limited Edition Juan Gabriel Jersey
It is hard to believe that it has been more than five years since legendary singer Juan Gabriel passed away at the age of 66. The singer/songwriter had a huge following in the Borderland and he was named one of the 30 most influential Latin performers in history by Billboard magazine in 2015. Soccer fans in El Paso and Mexico will now be able to wear a special limited edition jersey that pays tribute to the "Divo de Juarez."
The special black and gold jersey will be worn by the club on Saturday, February 5th when FC Juarez hosts Chivas at Benito Juarez Olympic Stadium. Fans can purchase the jersey for $2099 pesos online. There are both men's and ladies jerseys available. They will also be available soon at the Chihuahuas Team Shop.
The club explained in their official release that the reason they created the jersey is to unite the Juarense community in a single expression: Juan Gabriel is Bravos.
