  1. History of the Inter Milan Football Kit

    Being the only soccer team to play continuously in every Serie A tournament, there is no doubt about it that Inter Milan is a very popular club worldwide. And with their signature blue and black colour scheme, their jerseys are definitely a favourite with fans of football. Therefore within this article we are going to take a look back in history to discover how Internazionale got their classic colouring and how it has evolved throughout the years. Exploring partnerships with various manufacturers, there are most certainly good and bad jerseys worn by the players. So take a look through this article today to learn more about your favourite squad’s kit.

    Establishing the Inter Milan Home Colour Scheme

    Ever since the club was first established in 1908 the club has donned black and blue stripes on their home kits. And it is rumoured that this colour scheme was chosen to signify the night and the sky. They continued to wear this colouring throughout the WWII and eventually gained their nickname ‘Nerazzurri’ meaning the black and blues.

    However, they were forced to discontinue the use of their infamous colour scheme for the period of time where the Fascist party ruled. This was because they were merged with Unione Sportiva Milanese to form Societa Sportiva Ambrosiana. And the new club then adopted a red and white home kit inspired by the flag of Milan. But shortly after the war they were able to revert back to their classic colouring as the Fascist party were over thrown.

    Another common attribute seen in the Inter Milan home shirts is a snake or reference to one. This is because a serpent has a great symbolic significance with the city of Milan. The most famous artwork of this serpent is in Milanese heraldry where it is a viper consuming a human. This graphic is also seen in the House of Sforza coat of arms, Duchy of Milan and the Insubria.

    As far as away and third colour schemes go, they tend to differ slightly. The away apparel almos

  4. Looking Back at the Bayern Munich Kits

    Bayern Munich is a very strong soccer team in the Bundesliga and has lifted the trophy 28 times which is very impressive. Most recently they have won the Bundesliga champions title six consecutive times and this makes them such a popular squad to watch and through this they have earnt a strong following. So there is no doubt that the Bayern Munich kit releases are heavily anticipated. And in celebration of their successes we are putting this article together to have a look back through all of the previously worn home shirts worn by the players. Along with this we will also acknowledge notable away and third jerseys which have been a hit with supporters.

    History of the Home Colour Scheme

    When the Bayern Munich football club was first established, under the constitution their colours were named as white and blue. However, they actually played in white tops and black bottoms up until they joined the MSC in 1905. And from then on the MSC stated that the players would have to wear red shorts, which they took great dislike to. This is because ‘red shorts’ was a common insult which was given to younger players which indicated their lack of experience.  

    Moving on from this, over the years they have experimented a lot with the appearance of their home kit, which makes keeping up with their history very intriguing. As of the 1968/69 season the squad then adopted red and white striped jerseys and blue shorts and socks as their home kit. And they also tested the waters with donning their red and white shirt with red or white shorts and red socks too for a couple of seasons after this. But as a shocker they decided to do a 180 and change the whole look of their home strip in 1973/74. This is when the squad wore an all-white kit with vertical red and blue stripes displayed on their top.

    Along with all of these changes to the appearance of the home attire, they have also experimented with a blue base colour with red and white accents too. And as of
