Sponsored by Bet7k, Mirassol is the first club to face Santos after the loss of Pelé and pays homage to the King of Football

After saying goodbye to the biggest name in the history of world football, Santos had to take to the field with its main men’s team in the first round of the Paulista Championship this Saturday, 14. First team to face Peixe after the loss of the King of Football, the Mirassol paid a simple tribute in his uniform.

Sponsored by the Bet7k bookmaker, the club inserted Pelé’s name on its athletes’ shirts. All players entered the field with the name of ‘Your Majesty’ da Bola. The action became even more remarkable because the game was held at Vila Belmiro, the Peixe stadium.

According to Mirassol, which classified the duel as special, the tribute aims to exalt the “legacy of the greatest player of all time”. The justification for the tribute was published on the team’s social networks:

“King’s Cloak! This Saturday, as a tribute to the legacy of the greatest player of all time, all Mirassol players will have Pelé’s name engraved on their backs, in this special match on the stage where our eternal idol shone so much”.

The CEO of Bet7k, Talita Lacerda, is honored with the moment: “This moment is historic and deserved a tribute at the height of what Pelé was, above all, we feel the duty to honor the King on behalf of thousands of Brazilians ; for everything he did, represented and will continue to represent, not only for our nation, but for the world. At that moment, we only thought of one thing, to make clear to everyone the importance that Pelé has for the sport and to keep the memory of our fans alive. their deeds”.

Santos also pays homage to Pelé

Santos also made several tributes to Pelé in the reunion with Vila Belmiro, which ended with a comeback victory, by 2 to 1. With a light show, eternal idols of the club carried a crown to a throne, while the current players used shirts with various mentions of the King.

To exalt the number 10, immortalized by Pelé, the athletes changed the traditional numbering. All numbers formed an account that the result ended in ten. In addition, the club’s symbol also now has a crown in remembrance of the King’s deeds.

Santos’ partners agreed to give up their colors and have the brands inserted in white in this first game, as a rescue of the clean uniform that was used when Pelé paraded his talent in Vila Belmiro.
