After honoring lucha libre in 2021-22 and traditional Mexican art in 2022-23, sportswear company Charly is going with a decidedly modern inspiration for third kits for the six teams it outfits in Liga MX in 2023-24.
The third kits were launched earlier this week and will be used in the clausura, or second half, of the Liga MX season when it kicks off in January 2024. The kits are based off the video game franchise Call of Duty, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year.
In honor of the 20th Anniversary of @CallofDuty we present you an epic collection that combines two passions: football and the world of gaming. Discover the CL24 alternate jerseys, clothing and footwear. The perfect fusion between style and functionality will make you stand out on any terrain, showing your support for your favorite team.

All six jerseys have a Call of Duty wordmark on the back collar and a 20th anniversary graphic printed inside the collar.
