adidas Launch Cruzeiro 21/22 Centennial Away Shirt

Brazilian side Cruzeiro are celebrating their centenary this year, and as part of the celebration they have launched a special away shirt for the 21/22 season from adidas, which sees the traditional white shirt embellished with golden details throughout.

Joining the already launched home shirt, Brasileirão Série B side Cruzeiro have now dropped a clean away shirt that also celebrates the club’s centenary year.  The club already boast one of the most minimal crests in the game, but now those five stars are accentuated in gold, sitting on a clean white base – at least on the retail version that is. The players version will come complete with all of the regular sponsors you’d expect in South America, however, they too come in gold, sitting nicely within the overall design.

The white shirt has long been a special part of Cruzeiro’s identity, ever since the side first wore it in 1950. It became so popular that it rivalled even the traditional blue of the home shirt.

I believe that there are no adjectives to portray how spectacular this new shirt is, one of the most beautiful ever made in our history,” commented Sérgio Santos Rodrigues, president of Cruzeiro. “And the white shirt has long ceased to be a second uniform for us. It has accompanied our team in unforgettable stages of our trajectory, starting to carry even its own mystique. For our centenary we could not bring any material and I believe that this mantle will continue to give us joy in many important moments to come.
