Among Brazil’s best supported soccer clubs, CR Flamengo recently released its 2022/23 home kit.
The crewneck jersey features a bespoke look from adidas Brasil in the iconic red and black hoops of the seven-time Campeonato Brasileiro Série A champion.
For the first time the hoops on the jersey are covered with a wave pattern. The design is inspired by the sea of waving flags seen at the Estádio do Maracanã during Flamengo’s home matches. “A maior paixão do mundo” (The Greatest Passion in the World) is printed on the lower right front of the shirt to pay homage to the fans’ emotion at each and every home game.
Gustavo Oliveira, vice president of Communication and Marketing at the CR Flamengo commented: “In recent years, we have tried to use the great pillars of Flamengo in the creation of our official shirts – our shield, our anthem, the conquest of 1981, among others. They were the visual inspiration for shirts that were hugely successful. Now, in 2022, the inspiration was the strength, movement and spectacular look of our fans. It is what makes Flamengo the greatest passion in the world. The result was very beautiful. I have no doubt that it will be another kit that the fans will like”.
