Grêmio Foot-Ball Porto Alegrense debuted their 2017 Umbro home kit in their 2-0 win Copa Libertadores win at Venezuela’s Zamora FC on Thursday night.
In the famous sky blue and black stripes of the “Tricolor”, the new Gremio primary shirt was unveiled along with a light blue 2017 away jersey from Umbro Brasil. Both kits use a new bespoke design from the Brazilian subsidiary of the Manchester, UK-based football equipment specialists featuring a rounded collar with a low rise effect on its rear two thirds.
Player issued versions of the kits worn during Grêmio’s Copa Libertadores run feature a golden badge on their mid-chest recognizing the club’s two South American championships (1983 and 1995).
Those worn in the 2017 Campeonato Brasileiro Série A, Campeonato Gaúcho (Rio Grande do Sul State Championship) and Copa Libertadores have three stars embroidered above the Grêmio crest. They celebrate the team’s two Série A and one Intercontinental Cup (now the FIFA Club World Cup) titles.
