SL Benfica are once again the kings of Portuguese football after winning the Liga ZON Segares for the first time in four seasons. The thirty-three time Portuguese national champions hold a lot of continental prestige in their name as well, with two European Cup titles and are the current back-to-back defending UEFA Europa League champions. Their supporters undoubtedly would want nothing less than the best for Benfica. O Glorioso looks to soar past the competition with a new boisterous black away kit from adidas.
This away kit comes black with red, and looks tastefully done. The jersey has a round collar on its neck . The collar, adidas’ trademark three stripes, and the bands that appear on the sleeves are all in red, as is the adidas logo on the right side of the chest. A red curved stripe appears on the back neck area, under the collar. The black shorts also has the three stripes in red, and some details on the back of the shorts in the same color. The socks, in black as well, has the adidas stripes at the top with a horizontal band beneath it in red. The club’s initials, SLB, are just above the band in white. Moche, a Portuguese mobile phone service, is the primary sponsor, and appears in white on the shirt.
SL Benfica looks to defend their league title, and may go even further this coming season. Like what you see from Portugal’s most honored club? Share your thoughts with us below or on our official social media sites.
