Brothers Henrique, José and Luis Poppe were responsible for founding Sport Club Internacional. The greatest difficulty encountered by the Poppes, when they moved from São Paulo to Porto Alegre in 1901, was not finding a club allowing them to play football. At the time there were only two clubs in the city (Fussball and Grêmio Porto Alegrense), and both were private clubs for those of German ancestry. In 1909 the Poppes convened a group of students and others from Porto Alegre to a meeting on April Cheap Oklahoma City thunder jerseys 4, 1909, at 141 Redenção Avenue (now 1025 Avenue João Pessoa) with the objective of founding a new football club. Thus began the history of Sport Club Internacional.
More than 40 people voted on the name of the club, which was chosen in honor of Sport Club Internacional (from São Paulo). Since in those formative years of Brazilian football clubs were usually identified with colonies of immigrants from certain ethnic groups or nationalities (like São Paulo Palestra Italia, for Italians Cheap authnetic nba jerseys, or Vasco da Gama for Portuguese immigrants etc.), the name "Internacional" was chosen to identify a club where "all" could play, regardless of origin, race or social status. From this beginning Internacional emerged as a genuinely democratic non-discriminatory club.
The first emblem of Sport Club Internacional was designed with the initials SCI in red over a white background, without the red contour that appeared shortly afterwards. In the Fifties, the colors were inverted, as the initials were written in white over a red background. After winning the 2006 Copa Libertadores, the emblem won another star which is 50% bigger and is placed above the other four, which Cheap nba jerseys represent the three Brazilian championships (1975, 1976 and 1979) and the Brazilian Cup title (1992). However, Inter won the FIFA Club World Cup that same year, and the star symbolizing the Copa Libertadores title was moved down between the four stars representing the club's national honors, and a new diamond star was placed above it to commemorate the world crown. After winning the Cheap Miami Heat jerseys Libertadores again in 2010, yet another star was added.
The Forties were remarkable for the Colorados. One of the greatest squads in the club's history was formed in that decade, which earned the nickname Rolo Compressor, Portuguese for "Steamroller". They were an extremely offensive team that played from 1924 to 1948 and won eight Rio Grande do Sul championships. The reason for such superiority dated back to 1926, the year Inter started accepting black players in their squad – something that was not allowed by rivals Grêmio until 1952. That decision Cheap nike shoes t ended up strengthening the team, which placed no restrictions and always had the best players, and also gave birth to the affectionate nickname of "The People's Club."http://blogs.rediff.com/authenticjersey/
