HOME/AWAY Away COUNTRY Brazil Rio Grande Do sul

I've been told by Bira that Rio Grande Do Sul is a state which has a history of political independence and separatism and I have noticed a symptom of this in  the region's football shirts, many of them having the state colours on their shirts. RS FC have gone beyond that, the club having the state's name abbreviated and name itself. This club is owned by former Brazilian international Paulo César Carpeggiani. Apart from that I don't know much more about the club other than they hail from the delightfully named city of "Daybreak" and they were formed on the First of January 2001, an act which is commemorated on the club badge. While the shirt is quite plain it's very rare and a much valued addition to my collection.
