Inspired by the club’s female supporters, Nike have unveiled the new Corinthians third kit. It was worn for the first time by the club's women's team in Corinthians' 3-1 second leg win of the Brasileirão Female final against Palmeiras – the first time the kit of an elite club in Brazil has been debuted by the women's team.

Women reportedly make up 53 percent of the Corinthians fanbase, and in recognition of this, Nike and the club have unveiled the new third shirt. The shirt is predominantly purple, a colour that has represented several feminist movements throughout history, as a tribute to all Corinthians fans who fight for the club and its space in football. Black accents complement the design, and gold was chosen for the club's crest and the Swoosh. 

Further details include the inscription “Respect Minas”, also in gold, at the nape of the back of the piece, highlighting Corinthians' position in the fight for female inclusion on the lawns and in the stands. The rose detail in the design of the numbers was specially developed by artist Kari Rodrigues, who also participated in the campaign.

Women's football is a fundamental part of Corinthians' sport. Our team is made up of professionals of the highest technical level, who bring to each move and each goal the Corinthians DNA of always fighting and never failing to believe. We are very proud to be pioneers in Brazil by debuting an official shirt with the women's team”, says Duilio Monteiro Alves, president of Corinthians.

Milene Domingues, Women's Football ambassador for Corinthians, added: “All of this that we are living is the realisation of a very special dream. It's looking back and seeing that our struggle in football was worth so much effort. We never stopped believing."
