Those who have experienced a Boca Juniors match in La Bombonera know the intensity of their supporters. The 2018 away shirt pays tribute to the Xeneizes with the iconic blue and gold chest stripe stylized as a seismograph, symbolizing the vibrations felt from the highest seats down to the pitch.
Boca Juniors were founded in 1905 by a group of Italians from Genoa, giving the team and its fans their nickname—Xeneizes ("Genoese"). The team was rose to the Primera División in 1913. In 1925, the club had its first chance to prove its talents overseas, travelling to Spain, Germany and France. They seized the opportunity, winning 15 out of 19 matches. The club went on to take 32 division championships, 12 domestic cups and holds the 4th most internationally recognised titles in the world with 22. The club's fans are known as Los Xeneizes ("The Genoese") after the Italian founders of the team.
