Corinthians new shirt – a load of Pollocks?

September 6, 2019 at 22:47 Leave a comment

Brazil giants Corinthians have revealed their new third shirt which will make its debut on 7th September against Ceará in the Brasileirão. The jersey is an homage to the ‘fan invasions’ during the semi-final of the league in 1976, and the Club World Cup in 2000, which were in Rio de Janeiro; and the Club World Cup in Yokohama in 2012, when thousands of Musketeer’s supporters packed the stadiums of both cities.

The new shirt can cost up to U$73/€64/£60 – pricey by local standards – and has already come in for a lot of stick with rival fans comparing it to an ‘abada’ – a garish T-shirt/sleeveless shirt worn during the carnaval. However, art lovers have praised the design for its uncanny likeness to Jackson Pollock’s Yellow Islands.
