adidas launch Flamengo's new Sacred Robe

Flamengo Home Kit
Rio de Janeiro / Herzogenaurach, 13th August 2015, adidas is introducing the brand new home jersey for the most famous club in Rio, with slightly thinner black and red stripes that pays homage to its roots.

The new kit has a detail in the back with the expression "Manto Sagrado" (sacred robe) next to its neckline.

"Flamengo's fans always refer to the jersey using this term. We only applied a popular bleachers' expression to the red and black kit – a true homage to one of the world's most important clubs" says Luiz Gaspar, adidas Brazil football clubs director.The kit is equipped with ClimaCool® and its refreshing engineered fabrics, made especially for the body areas that produce more sweat and heat. This material allows the player to maintain his ideal temperature for more time.

In the words of Eduardo Bandeira de Mello, Flamengo's President: "Once again, adidas must be recognized for its high standards. The new home kit is beautiful and honours our history. I'm sure it will bring us a lot of luck".

The new Flamengo home kit is available to buy from selected adidas stores, specialist sports retailers and e-commerce channels.
