NS Corinthians On Friday it launched an entire line of T-shirts and blouses in honor of Socrates, the club’s idol and symbol of the Corinthian period of democracy (on Saturday, it celebrates the tenth anniversary of the former player’s death). The clothing is a way to remember the Eternal Doctor, an important figure in the club’s history.

In the opening text, Corinthians refers to the period of democracy as “one of the pride of loyal fans” and also mentions the other names that created the movement, such as Casagrande, Wladimir, Zé Maria, Biro-Biro, and Zenon.

The uniform has some special details, the most important of which is the main insignia, which is represented by the clenched and raised fist, one of the symbols of resistance used by Socrates and a style of writing dating back to the 1980s.
