History of Shakhtar Donetsk football kits
Today’s iconic orange and black home colours for Shakhtar Donetsk were not actually introduced until the 1960’s. Prior to this time the team wore a completely different set of coloured football shirts. Initially the team wore a light blue home shirt with red football shorts. In the 1950’s the red shorts were swapped to royal blue.
The orange and black home colours were first worn in 1961, and have stayed in varying designs ever since. Orange and black is fairly unique in the mainstream of European football shirts, and is a popular choice with Shakhtar Donetsk supporters who proudly sport their shirts to show solidarity to their beloved football team.
From 1992 - 2007 Shakhtar Donetsk enjoyed a long football kit manufacturing relationship with Adidas. However, in 2008 American sportswear company Nike took over and at the time of writing the Nike Swoosh continues to adorn the clubs football shirts and training kits.
