EDSON ARANTES DO NASCIMENTO, or Pelé as he is better known, holds a high place in the pantheon of footballing greats. To celebrate the incredible career of Brazil’s best football player ever, Homefans and Athleta partner up to give fans the opportunity to get their hands on one of the iconic jerseys Pele used to wear during his career.
Athleta was the official shirt provider of Santos FC between the ’50s until the beginning of the ’80’s. The club, together with the brand, during this time, won 2x Libertadores and 2x World Cup of Clubs. But more importantly, the king of football, Pelé, was the main player of the company during this time.
Pelé won three World Cups with the Brazilian National Team and with Santos, scored more than 1.000 goals in his career, and was nominated by FIFA the “Player of the Century”.
The goalscoring machine brought the club many successes in his time at Santos. We give you the opportunity to relive the true history of the shirts used at Santos, in official games.
The main focus is to maintain the originality of the jerseys, which means it is not just retro, but the original clothing fabric of that time, the same label and with embroidered symbol and numbers, passing on to fans exactly as it was worn by the stars.
