Just like the home, the Palmeiras 2017-18 away kit features a simple 'P' in place of the contemporary club crest. It is white with green stripes that fade towards the bottom, inspired by Palmeiras' 1996 kit.



On the back of the collar of the new Palmeiras 2017-18 away kit is a special label with the writing "E nasce o Palmeiras campeão, 1942", (When the champions Palmeiras were born) in reference to Palmeiras' name change due to the World War II. Palmeiras won the league title in their 'debut year'.

The Palmeiras 17-18 third kit, meanwhile, is dark green with gold logos, again featuring the 'P' logo. It also has a gold v-collar and gold sleeve cuffs, with the three stripes running down the sides of the shirt in the same color.

It is inspired by the "Dragón Heroica" that happened in 1942. The episode marked the change of name from Palestra to Palmeiras due to the Second World War. In his first game as Sociedade Esportiva Palmeiras, the club had to win the game to be champion. In the 19 minutes of the second half, Palmeiras beat Sao Paulo 3-1, when Sao Paulo had a penalty in their favor, but surprising to everyone, decided to leave the field before the collection, which confirmed the title-winning victory of Palmeiras in the club's first match with the new name.


"The history of Palmeiras is simply fantastic. Which great club in the world can say that it was champion in its first game? It's a unique fact: a winning club since birth. And this historic achievement deserves to be remembered for the new generations to know the importance of Palmeiras. We are proud to make a shirt that celebrates this moment in the history of Palmeiras," said Luiz Gaspar, head of soccer adidas Brazil.
