Here comes a team from Brazil where the players will always walk onto the football pitch with a smile on their face… and that’s because of the incredibly cheery nature of their badge. It features a person with a huge smile and even a thumbs-up, and to be fair the club has had a fair bit to smile about of late.
For a little while it could be argued that J. Malucelli Futebol lost their identity in 2009 they changed their name to Sport Club Corinthians Paranaense, changing not only their name but also their kit and logo. The fans were delighted when the club changed its name back to J. Malucelli Futebol in 2012, and thankfully the club’s old badge were also changed back. One of the crowning moments of the Curitiba-based club came in 2007 when it won the Copa Paraná, a state-wide cup tournament – just 13 years after the club’s formation in 1994.
