Reigning Brazilian league champions Cruzeiro Esporte Clube signed a three-year deal with Penalty in December. While the Campeonato Brasileiro Série A winners of the last two seasons are still wearing training gear from previous technical partner Olympikus in training they have given fans a first look at their 2015 home and away kits.
Both shirts uses the same design that is inspired by the Topper home jersey that Cruzeiro wore when they completed a Serie A and Campeonato Mineiro (Minas Gerais State Championship) double in 2003.
A formal kit launch event is expected from Cruzeiro in the coming weeks. It has been speculated that Penalty has not been able to manufacture a sufficient quantity of Cruzeiro’s 2015 kits to take them to market. They are expected to be on sale at the Subside Sports Brazilian club store.
