We have showed you some great pictures of the new New Brazil Away 08/09 Nike football shirt about a month ago, and today the CBF officially launched their new blue away shirt for the 08/09 season. Like the new home shirt it's also inspired on the uniform used in 1958 and has yellow name & numbers.
Two world champions, Djalma Santos and Zito, have been invited for the official launch party. The Shirt will be first worn in the commemorative game against Sweden, on 26 of March, in London. The design of the new shirt was influenced by the shirt used in the match against Sweden, on 29 of June of 1958.
The new shirt has a "V" collar and has the trims of the sleeves in yellow. At the inside of the collar the phrase "nascido para jogar futebol" which means "born to play football". The new shirt has an adjustment called Dynamic fit, which "glues" the fabric to the body, and makes it more difficult for "pull pullers". The shorts are white with details in blue. 5 stars on the socks.
The shirt will be sold in 2 versions, one is the "player" version (with the same used technology as for the players) The other is a normal Dry-fit replica version.
Beyond the official shirt, supplier Nike is also going to launch a line with t-shirts, jackets, caps.
