TEAM Bangu Atletico Clube SEASON(S) 2011
HOME/AWAY Home COUNTRY Brazil Rio De Janeiro
MANUFACTURER Spozer

From the lower leagues of Brazil comes yet another crazy club. Bangu are from a suburb of Rio De Janeiro and exist largely in the lower reaches of the Brazilian league structure. The shirt is fairly lightweight and like other Spozer shirts in the collection manufactured using screen printing. The large motif in the middle of the chest is a beaver, yes a beaver. Apparently Brazil is home to huge Amazonian beavers. Who knew? This relates to the club's nickname and derives from a character used in an illegal Brazilian betting game. Once again thanks are due to my friend and fellow collector Bira Rezende for this rare and unusual shirt.
