History of the Fiorentina Home Kit
The most iconic, and most popular, of the Fiorentina kit is of course the home shirt. The team famously wear purple football shirts for home fixtures, however, this distinctive colour choice was not introduced until 1928. For the first two-years after ACF Fiorentina was founded the squad wore half and half style red and white soccer jerseys.
Whether true or simply anecdotal, it is rumoured that the purple colour scheme arose from a mistake when washing the red and white shirts in a local river. No matter how the colour arose, the purple home colour is now distinctive in Florence, Italy and around the globe as that of ACF Fiorentina.
Fiorentina Kit Styles
In addition to the infamous purple home shirt we also stock the away and third jersey designs for ACF Fiorentina. Traditionally the Fiorentina away shirt is white with varying amounts of purple detailing. The third jersey varies between several different colour options, red is often chosen in honour of the clubs first ever strip, but there have also been yellow, grey, black and blue incarnations over recent years.
In 2017/18 the club and manufacturer Le Coq Sportif took the unprecedented step of launching five different football shirts. The purple home jersey was supported by four different away shirts. Each of the away jerseys was designed to reflect one of the four historic quartiere of the city of Florence as follows:
- Santa Croce: all-blue
- Santo Spirito: all-white
- San Giovanni: all-green
- Santa Maria Novella: all-red
