Adidas Cruzeiro 2021 Centenary Third Kit Revealed

Adidas just released a green shirt for Brazilian club Cruzeiro as part of the club's 100-years anniversary.

Cruzeiro was founded on January 2, 1921, by sportsmen from the Italian colony of Belo Horizonte and others, who decided to create a new club called Societá Sportiva Ypiranga, changing the name months later to Palestra Mineiro and after one game to Palestra Itália.

As a result of the Second World War, the Brazilian federal government banned the use of any symbols referring to the Axis powers (Germany, Italy and Japan) in 1942. The club board members rebaptized the club with the name of a leading national symbol: the Cruzeiro do Sul's constellation (Southern Cross).
