Chilean Club's Shirt Numbers Are McDonalds Fries And We're Loving It

Chilean club O'Higgins F.C have ensured they stand out from the crowd as today they debuted a new pink away kit. But the colour of the strip isn't actually the big talking point.

O'Higgins' new third shirt has a slew of different sponsors but none are more striking and noticeable than the massive squad numbers in the style of McDonalds fries dipped in tomato ketchup.

Yes you are reading that correctly. The club have struck up a big deal with the fast food giant and instead of their logo being draped on the front, they've struck up the most creative, groundbreaking partnership and we're loving it.

Unfortunately, the Rancagua-based club lost their first game in the unique kit as Huachipato came from behind to win 2-1 in the Chilean Primera division fixture.

They have, however, made us all really, really want a Maccies right now.

O'Higgins still have some way to go if they want to surpass Spanish side CD Guijelo as the top team for food-related kits.

The club, who were formed in 1974, have been prominent in integrating ham into their football shirt as it's part of the town's history.

One kit had hundreds of pieces of ham on it while another shirt featured a big fuck-off image of a ham joint.
