This is the new Nike Third shirt for giants of Brazilian football SC Corinthians.
The striking new 2020-21 design is in “Baroque Brown” and light blue and this is a tribute to the English amateur Corinthian-Casuals side.
This 80-year-old club was born of a merger of Casuals and the Corinthian FC club from which the South American team takes its name, and has played against Corinthians Paulista on Brazilian trips leading to a fraternal relationship with its near-namesake.
To keep things Corinthians, the colours are arranged into a brown base with blue cross - a familiar motif which nods to the cross of St George as a further reference to the English influence - and blue contrast neck and cuffs, as well as blue trim down the sides, blue Nike Swoosh logo and full-colour crest. The shorts and socks continue the deployment of the simple palette.
