Freshening up their look for the new season to come, adidas launch new Brazilian champions Flamengo’s 2021 home shirt, with a design that honours the 40th anniversary of one of the greatest years in the clubs history.

The 1981 season is regarded as the most successful and iconic season in Flamengo's history, in which they captured their first ever Copa Libertadores championship and defeated European Cup champions Liverpool by a score of 3 – 0 in the Intercontinental Cup in Tokyo, Japan. The team accomplished the feat of winning three trophies (the Copa Libertadores final, the Campeonato Carioca final, and the Intercontinental Cup) in a span of 21 days. 40 years on and that famous season is honoured with the design of the club’s new home shirt.

Flamengo’s 2021 home shirt sees the design reflecting that of the shirt worn in the famous 1981 season, with wide red and black hoops. But it’s in the latter that the standout feature appears, with a stylised ‘1981’ graphic repeated throughout. The player numbers are set to have a origami style to them, reflecting the success in Japan. The words ‘ANO DE OURO’ (Golden Year) then appear on the rear of the neck as a nice sign off.
