Japanese J. League Division 1 club Nagoya Grampus is back in the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) after a one-year absence. Last season’s second-placed J1 finisher is pooled with Australia’s Central Coast Mariners, South Korea’s Seongnam Ilhwa Chunma and China’s Tianjin Teda in Group G of the competition.
As the club prepares for its March 7th meeting with Seongnam Ilhwa Chunma, the Nagoya Grampus le coq sportif 2012 AFC Champions League has been launched. Here is a detailed look at the authentic version of the new jersey that features the AFC Champions League and Fair Play patches on the sleeves.
Nagoya has not launched new kits for its 2012 domestic campaign and may continue to use the home and away strips released in early 2011 for its J. League and Emperor’s Cup runs.
