Defending Campeonato Brasileiro Série A champions Fluminense Football Club has officially launched its adidas 2013 home kit (now available at Subside Sports). The jersey’s release follows weeks of unauthorized early sales by Rio de Janeiro-based retailers.
With former FC Barcelona, Chelsea and Portugual international Deco and several Brazil internationals including Fred and Thiago Neves in its squad, Fluminense has been league champions in two of the last three Série A seasons.
The Fluminense 2013 adidas home jersey features the club’s well-known red, green and white stripes and a rounded neckline. It is expected to be worn in match action for the first time when the club meets Nova Iguaçu in the first round of this year’s Campeonato Carioca (Rio de Janeiro State Championship) on Sunday.
