Esporte Clube Bahia (often simply known as Bahia) is a Brazilian football team based in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil. The club won the Campeonato Brasileiro Série A in 1988 and the Taça Brasil (the predecessor to the modern Brazilian League) in 1959, beating Pelé’s Santos in the decisive match.
Bahia is currently in 16th position in the 2011 Campeonato Brasileiro Série A following its promotion from Série B at the end of last season.
Earlier this week, Bahia presented its 2011 Lotto third kit to the public. The new shirt is also Bahia’s 80th Anniversary jersey. It was worn for the first time during the club’s scoreless draw with last placed América-MG on Thursday night.
The Bahia Lotto 2011 home and away kits were launched in May.
