THE Corinthians released, this Friday (6), its new shirt II for the 2022/23 football season. Just like the main model, in white, this black one also celebrates 10 years of the Libertadores and Mundial conquests.
Instead of the traditional vertical white stripes, consecrated as the club’s second uniform, the model features the outline of the map of the State of São Paulo in black and gray tones.
This pattern had already been used in 2012/13, and can be seen wearing Paolo Guerrero in the final of the World Cup that season, when the Peruvian scored a goal that declared victory against Chelsea.
On the inside of the new shirt, at the nape of the neck, is the phrase “The Favela is Here”, immortalized in a scarf raised by coach Tite in the conquest in Japan. Another reference to that year is the motto “Against everything and against all”, written inside the numbers, which was the theme of the Libertadores conquest.
The numbering also gets a texture inspired by the 2012 shirt, with a gold border matching the sleeve and collar.
The kit’s debut will be against Red Bull Bragantino next Sunday (8), for the Brazilian Championship, in Bragança Paulista.
