Paying homage to their triumphant 1981 Copa Libertadores victory, adidas has revealed Flamengo’s latest home jersey for the upcoming Brasileirão campaign. Flamengo, Brazil’s most supported club hailing from Rio de Janeiro, will debut the latest Rubro-Negra (Scarlet-Black) shirt in their season opener May 14th against Sport Recife.
Flamengo’s home jersey has large scarlet and black horizontal stripes. A red v-neck collar gives the jersey a vintage feel, as intended. The sleeves have scarlet and black trim on the cuffs, with heavy black underarm stripe on each arm.
The side panels on the shirt are black, with scarlet three-stripes serving as side piping. The stripes dash down from the underarms through the hem of the shirt. The Carioca club’s kit will come complete with white shorts with red trim, and scarlet and black socks.
The 2016/17 CR Flamengo home jersey is available at World Soccer Shop.
