Corinthians revealed the new 2010 Centenary home football kit made by Nike. The launch of the shirt that represents 100 years of passion deserves a big party... and that's what happened at Parque São Jorge.
After the presentation, the players went to the locker room to prepare, and returned to Parque São Jorge, for the Saturday morning training.
Corinthians was founded on September 1, 1910 by a group of labourers—mainly of Portuguese, Italian and Spanish descent—hoping to create a popular club in the city of São Paulo to play against the elite clubs that already existed. They are named after the English amateur team Corinthian F.C., which had played a number of exhibition matches during a tour of Brazil.
Even though the club has been recognized by the colours black and white for most of its history, the first Corinthians' kit originally consisted of cream shirts and black shorts. But when the shirts were washed, the cream colour gradually became white.
