These are the new Flamengo kits produced by Olympikus for the 2011 Brazilian Série A season.
Flamengo are reportedly the most popular team in Brazil with the estimated amount of fans being around the 35 million mark. As well as that they also one of the most successful clubs in Brazilian football winning almost every major competition trophy available to them in their 99 year history as a football team.
The Rio clubs new kit are made by Brazilian manufacturer Olympikus who, although not present in Europe, have a few high profile teams in South America to their name which includes Racing Club, Lanús and Argentinos Juniors
The new Flamengo kits pay respect to their 1981 Intercontinental Cup title win over Liverpool F.C. which officially made them world champions in club football in the days before the FIFA Club World Cup. The home shirt is in Flamengo's traditional red and black hoops, uninterrupted at the sides but with quite a modern styling at the top of the shirt. A nod to the 1981 cup victory can be seen on the left side of the chest with a watermarked logo commemorating the victory with the words 'Campeão do Mundo' meaning World Champions and the place and date, Tokyo, December 13th 1981. On the opposite side is Flamengo's alternate logo which is a stylised C.R.F. and a star over the top also denoting the victorious '81 season.
The away kit accompanying the home follows the same design style except with the majority of the shirt transformed to white, a variation on the sleeves and collar colour have also been applied. Again the 1981 motif can be found on the left of the chest only now with a more prominent red-black-gold colour scheme.
At this time the club are yet to announce a main sponsor for the front of the shirt but a Banco BMG sponsor can be found on the sleeves.
