Sete de Setembro (or 7th September) is a date with some resonance in Brazil. It is the date on which Brazilians celebrate their independence and as such is an important date for a young dynamic country. There are a few teams in Brazil sporting this name and I assume that it is because of the date's status as Independence Day although this particular club was also founded on the seventh of September albeit in a different year to the state of Brazil. The club are based in Dourados in the far south of Brazil and compete in the Mato Grosso do Sul state Championship. My good friend Bira Rezende sent this shirt to me.
