Mengão will make his debut in the new uniform this Sunday, in a duel against Atlético-MG, at the Supercopa do Brasil
This Sunday, and flamingo He faces Atlético-MG, at Supercopa do Brasil, 4 p.m., at Arena Pantanal. The upcoming team from Rio de Janeiro will present the new uniform that has sparked controversy behind the scenes at the club, according to ESPN Brasil.
The No. 1 jersey of the season was controversial during council meetings. The uniform was created with details in ‘The Wave’ already in 2020, but was rejected because it had both red and black in the waves and thus was very different from the standards to be the first from Mengão.
However, this shirt has been approved to be the third of the 2022 season and this shirt should become official in the coming months by the club. The ones that Mengão will use on Sunday to compete for the Supercup title against Atlético-MG, will also feature waves, but less aggressive, traditionally followed by the red and black horizontal stripes.
The numbers also drew attention, because for the first time in the century, the Flamingo Home Kit will have a black number with a white outline. All Mengão No. 1 shirts from 2001 onwards had blank numbers.
The last time the Flamengo shirt bore black numbers was in the 1997 season. Mingao entered the field this afternoon in search of another Brazilian Super Cup title, the team were champions in 2020 against Atletico-PR and Palmeiras, respectively, and are now chasing the trio that Atletico follow. – MG.
