These are the new Benfica kits 2012/2013, Portuguese giants SL Benfica’s new home and away strips for the forthcoming 2012-13 season. Benfica’s new 12/13 kits have been made by Adidas. The Eagles, who have players like Axel Witsel, Javier Saviola, Oscar Cardozo and Nicolas Gaitan ( long linked with a Man Utd switch) in their ranks, finished second in the Portuguese league last season behind arch rivals FC Porto.
Benfica’s new 12/13 jerseys were officially unveiled by Adidas on July 2, 2012, but were available for purchase much earlier on the Adidas site.
The new SLB home kit features a collar and white bands on the end of the sleeves while the away shirt is primarily black with a red band in the centre. The Adidas stripes on the home top are white in colour and red on the away jersey.
MEO and TMN are the principal sponsors of Benfica’s new 2012/13 kits.
