Flamengo 2015-16 Third Kit Released

The new Adidas Flamengo 2015-2016 Third Jersey introduces a fresh design for the Brazilian club, which draws inspiration from the first shirt used by the club, known as the "Papagaio Vintém".

"Flamengo is an icon of the paradise that is Rio de Janeiro. Nothing could be more fitting, on a date as important as the city's 450th anniversary, than this tribute to Flamengo's fans," says Luiz Gaspar, director of the soccer club category for adidas Brazil.

The Adidas Performance logo on the front is black. The new chequered Flamengo Kit boasts a classical Flamengo crest with the initials "CRF" , which will be also used for the Flamengo 2015-16 Away Kit. The crew neck collar and the sleeve cuffs of the new Flamengo Kit are white.

The new Flamengo 2015 Third Shirt includes a blue stripe, in reference to the Rio de Janeiro state flag, as well as a "Rio de Janeiro – 450 years" seal.

In 1995, Umbro also designed a special chequered kit to celebrate the 100-year anniversary of Flamengo.

The unique Flamengo 15-16 Third Jersey will be already used in the "Rivalry Derby" (Clássico da Rivalidade) against Botafogo on March 1, celebrating Rio de Janeiro's 450-year anniversary. Rio de Janeiro was founded in 1565.
