This past Sunday, Benfica completed the Portuguese treble by defeating Rio Ave 1-0 for the 2014 Taça de Portugal Final. During the game, the Portuguese Giants wore their brand new 2014/2015 adidas Home Shirt, which brought a victory that should help fans recover from their Europa League final loss to Sevilla on penalties.
This new Camisola for As Águias is characterized by the a compass and quadrant inspired watermark design that was already seen with this years’ Champions League Final Match Ball design, honoring the Portuguese maritime history. Applied in a slightly darker tone of red, the design helps the club’s crest pop up on the left chest, with a matching darker V-neck collar and cuffs. On the opposite side, the adidas logo, together with the three stripes branding on the sleeves and sponsor logo Meo, bring a bit of white to an overall simple and clean design.
Benfica fans will hope this new design keeps the victories coming, setting their eyes on finally breaking the European curse that has kept the club from winning the Europa League despite finishing one of the most successful seasons in the club’s recent history. If you support Benfica, you can get yours now at World Soccer Shop.
