Former club world champions Clube de Regatas do Flamengo have unveiled their 2018/19 home kit from adidas Brasil.
The Rio de Janeiro giants will wear the new shirt as their first choice jersey during their upcoming Campeonato Brasileiro Série A, Copa do Brasil and Copa Libertadores seasons.
The Flamengo 2018/19 adidas home kit is in the famed red and black horizontal stripes of the club. Subtle tonal graphics add detail within the stripes. The shirt is the first to feature the new Flamengo shield. The letters CRF from Clube de Regatas Flamengo have undergone a restyling, making the symbol more modern and vibrant while maintaining the tradition of a brand that is synonymous with achievement, racial euquality, love and passion.
Flamengo’s mascot, the vulture, is honored with a small drawing on the back of the kit. The shirt has black adidas stripes on its shoulders. They match with its black rounded collar and sleeve cuffs. The new Flamengo uniform is completed with white shorts with red side stripes and red-black socks.
“As a fan, I really enjoy the new kit, combining traditional elements of club history with innovation in both sports performance technology and the new shield. The horizontal stripes are in response to requests from fans and the present vulture is a strong, striking element”, said Daniel Orlean, Vice President of Marketing for the Flamengo.
“In 5 years of partnership we have already made more than 20 Flamengo uniforms. And it’s always a pleasure to develop new products for this passionate club. The new kit all the besttechnology, allowing the athlete to give the best of his performance,” said Luiz Gaspar, head of soccer adidas Brasil.
Flamego will debut their 2018/19 adidas home kit on Wednesday, April 18th when they meet Independiente de Santa Fe of Colombia in the Copa Libertadores of America group stage.
