The Numancia, football team of the Spaniard second division, will be the first football team wearing shirts produced in Spain with nanotechnology. The manufacture of the new shirts, called Ti-energy, is composed of silver and titanium nanoparticles.

The main properties of these shirts are stainless, antistatic and antibacterial, hundred percent breathable, waterproof and impermeable to any liquid.

With this technology, the water enters and leaves but the shirt did not get wet, so that the numantino players neither will be drenched in sweat, nor will be soaked and of course when it rains at the end of the match the shirt will be as clean as at the beginning.

The teams of the Italian soccer league, Atalanta and Parma, have used already these shirts with satisfactory results.
