Palmeiras Centenary Third Kit 2013/14

PalmeirasThird3

Brazilian outfit Palmeiras recently released a centenary third kit paying homage to the Seleção national shirt. Many believe the Adidas design was a statement of what the German sportswear giant could have produced for next year’s World Cup hosts.

Palmeiras will return to Brazil’s top flight next term following one season in Serie B.

The club was founded on August 26, 1914, as Palestra Italia, by four Italians in Sao Paolo. After Brazil’s entry into World War Two, the club was forced  to change its name because of the reference to Italy.

The new Palmeiras kit is inspired by the shirt worn by Brazil in the 1966 World Cup and features a similar wing collar.
