Hailed from the city of SÃ£o Paulo, Sport Club Corinthians Paulista held a record 26 state championship titles over its 102-year history. That accomplishment mirrors the team's current ranking of #1 within the Brazilian Series A League as well as a new state-of-the-art stadium to match. And so, with one of the world's greatest striker and former Corinthian, Ronaldo, in attendance, Nike Soccer unveiled the new S.C. Corinthians Paulista Home & Away Kit for 2012-2013.
Historically distinctive in black and white, the new kit kept the tradition, with home jersey in white with black collar and the vice versa for the away jersey. Imprinted with hidden message "Corinthians Paulista" (Corinthians from Sao Paulo) along the collar and badge's reverse side, both jersey honors the team's past with a CP initials, its earliest emblem. Like all other kit from Nike Soccer, each of S.C. Corinthians Paulista jersey and shorts is made from 13 recycled plastic bottles. Thus, ensuring utmost technical performance with the lowest possible impact on the environment.
