Botafogo Copa Sudamericana 2008 team kits

One of the biggest four clubs in Brazil and one of the four major football clubs in Rio de Janeiro Botafogo de Futebol e Regatas or Botafogo FR. Botafogo means (he who) sets fire and is also the name of the neighbourhood where the club has its origins (Botafogo Beach). It is nicknamed "Fogo", "Bota" (breakdowns of the club's name), "Fogão" (augmentative of "Fogo", largely used), "Alvinegro" (White-black), "O clube da Estrela Solitária" (The Lone Star club, reference to the club's major symbol), and "O Glorioso" (The Glorious, nickname given after 1910's campaign). Botafogo currently home ground is Engenhão or Estádio Olímpico João Havelange (João Havelange Olympic Stadium) , the stadium was build to Rio 2007 and ceded to Botafogo. a multi-use stadium located in the Engenho de Dentro neighborhood of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It is used mostly for football matches and athletics.

Kappa Botafogo primary uniform consists of a black jersey with vertical white stripes, black shorts and grey socks. Camisetas Botafogo secondary uniform is all white. An all black uniform also be used for the third kits. Botafogo kit sponsor Kappa has its logo placed just under the collar on the top right side of the shirt and on both sides of the sleeves. Just opposite of the Kappa logo is the club symbol is the lone star, represented on its badge. Botafogo sponsor Liquigas has its logo placed just beneath in the center of the shirt. The Botafogo shirts is complemented by white and black as changes shorts with Kappa logo on both sides. The Botafogo socks is completed with the club badge and thesmall Kappa logo.
