TEAM Americana SEASON(S) 2011
HOME/AWAY Away COUNTRY Brazil Sao Paulo

You would expect to find a team called Americana with a badge like that in the MLS and based somewhere like Texas rather than in Sao Paulo state, Brazil. Well there's a reason it's in Brazil. the town of Americana received a lot of immigrants from the Confederate States of America in the period immediately following the American Civil War in the 1860s. To this day the town's crest retains a Confederate flag! The team was a very shirt lived experiment as the side of Guaratingueta who also have a shirt in the museum relocated to Americana for a year, thought better of it and moved back. Brazilian collector, and football shirt cultural attache, Bira Rezende sent me this very fine shirt for the collection.
