Peaceful Production x Corinthian
Just over a century ago, Corinthian FC were sailing to Brazil for their 2nd tour of the country, continuing their mission of popularising the Beautiful Game around the world.
When news reached them of the outbreak of war, they returned home immediately and swapped their famous white kit for military khaki on the front line. The team lost a record number of men in the conflict and the iconic club never recovered.
To support the British Legion Poppy Appeal and to commemorate the Centenary of Armistice and the end of the First World War, we‘ve teamed up with Corinthian, a brand inspired by the original club to champion sportsmanship and #CorinthianSpirit.
To find out more about Corinthian FC and the extraordinary story of how modern day amateur team Corinthian Casuals Football Club returned to Brazil to play titans SC Corinthians Paulista in a match to honour the South American legacy of Corinthian FC, tune in to BT Sport 1 on 10th November @ 9pm to watch their brand new film “Brothers in Football”.
