With horizontal stripes in two shades of green and sporting a white collar, the new third jersey seeks inspiration in the models worn by rugby players. As football, rugby is a sport of strength and a lot of heart, in addition to sharing the same origins as football. Palmeiras’ new jersey serves to reinforce the connection between the two sports.
Made from 100% polyester, the shirt features the exclusive new ClimaCool technology which ensures perfect ventilation of the body and comfort to the player. The model also has a holographic adidas symbol – with a design inspired by the FIFA World Cup – in order to ensure the uniqueness of the product.
The new uniform – that will be used for the first time this coming Saturday (30) in the Brasileirão game against Goiás – is already available at Mundo Palmeiras, the official store of S.E. Palmeiras.

On a personal note, I wasn’t thrilled about the looks of this jersey when I first saw it, but it’s growing on me. It’s indeed rugby inspired, but also has a sort of “social” aspect to it, like any regular polo top; I guess that’s what bothering me slightly. Well, in any case it’s apparently already a huge success in terms of sales. Let’s see how it looks and behaves when worn by actual players this Saturday.
