Brazil is a country which has some long standing football traditions but there are also many clubs which have been founded comparatively recently, like Palmas from central Brazil. The shirt is a fairly conservative style but well made by Dalponte. The club badge however is well worth a mention and a longer look. Like many Brazilian clubs Palmas have a rowing club heritage and as such the ubiquitous oars appear alongside the sun rays. While I appreciate the more traditional badge I also like this contemporary design very much. For what seems like the millionth time I am due to thank my friend Bira from sunny Sao Paulo for sending me this stunning football shirt.
