FIFA21 Releasing ‘El Chavo Del Ocho’ Uniforms To Honor The Icon For Limited Time

“El Chavo del Ocho” is one of the most iconic shows in the Spanish-language world. The tv show spawned some of the most beloved characters, including the namesake of the show. FIFA21 is getting in on the fun of highlighting the character to honor its 50 years of touching lives.

You can wear a special Chavo del Ocho uniform in FIFA21.

“El Chavo del Ocho” is one of the most culturally important shows in the Spanish-speaking world. The Mexican sitcom gifted us Chavo del 8 and Chilindrina and we are all better for knowing those characters. The show, which ran for almost nine years, is still celebrated and loved today.

The uniforms are available for only a very short time.

FIFA 21 players can access the uniform between Dec. 10 to 13. The outfit isn’t outright free. Players have to accomplish three challenges and will then be granted access to the Chavo del Ocho kit. Who wouldn’t want a chance to play in the Chavo del Ocho kit?

Soccer players who wear the kit in the game are excited to be part of the celebration.

Who wouldn’t want a chance to be part of video game history. It isn’t every day that a video game version of yourself gets to wear an outfit that gives praise to one of the greats. If there was ever a highlight in life, this would definitely be one of them.

Some are thinking of it as a sweet homage to Chespirito.

Roberto Mario “Chespirito” Gómez y Bolaños is responsible for some of Mexico’s most important characters. The actor brought several characters to life on the television but none more iconic than Chavo del Ocho. If it were not for Chespirito, we would have never got to see Chapulin Colorado fight off the bad men or Chavo del Ocho interactions with La Chilindrina.

Who else is getting excited about the debut of these kits?
