Currently in ninth place in the 2012 Campeonato Brasileiro Série A, Cruzeiro Esporte Clube is a Brazilian soccer club from the city of Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais founded on January 2, 1921.
Once the team of players such as Alex, Dida, Ronaldo, Rivaldo and Ramires, Cruzeiro has won Série A twice, the Copa do Brasil four times and the Copa Libertadores twice.
Cruzeiro launched its 2012 third outfield player and goalkeeper kits from technical sponsor Olympikus on Monday evening. Its release follows that of the club’s latest home and away kits in March.
Modeled by forward Alejandro Martinucci and club Musa Rayanne Oliveira, the Cruzeiro 2012 third jersey is inspired by that worn by the team in 1943. It is expected to see match action when Cruzeiro meets Ponte Preta in league action on Thursday evening.
