As of today, Palmeiras’ 2016-2017 first kit is available in stores. The new jersey features five vertical stripes in shades of green, and the characteristic three Adidas stripes have been moved from the shoulders to the side of the uniform. On the collar, an Alviverde Imponente inscription, a direct reference to the club anthem. On the sleeves, discrete details in white and red in tribute of Palmeiras’ Italian origins.
Our players will wear the new uniform on 14 May, in the first round of the Brazilian championship, at the Allianz Parque against Atlético Paranaense.
At first, I thought it was an ugly jersey but now, looking at it, I think it is pretty nice!
I agree, Matheus! And thanks for dropping by leaving your comment! Volte sempre!
Is it possible for fans in the US to get replica jerseys?
Replica? I would only endorse official, licensed products. I’m sure you could get them in the US, or even order from Brazil and have them ship internationally. I can for exmple recommend VerdeGol: http://www.verdegol.com.br. Cheers!
Sorry for the confusion. Here in the US we often call officially licensed jerseys “replicas”. Thanks for the link to VerdeGol. I’ll check them out!
Cool. Good luck, mate. And thanks for the “replica” explanation. : )
Man, I’ve ordered a jersey from Ebay. I ordered from a guy called santaboca and I didn’t have any problems. I usually get mine when my mom goes to Brazil. I have a total of 18 Palmeiras jerseys.
Nice one, Joseph! Let’s hope you mom continues her frequent travelling to Brazil! ; )
I think the center stripe/shade kills it. They shoulda made it solid in the middle like the Arsenal shirts me thinks….
