History of the Tottenham Away Jersey
The concept of an alternate football strip has been around for a long time. All clubs have their signature colours that they sport when playing on home turf, but when travelling to the oppositions ground a change-up of colour scheme is required. Over the years the club has had an array of different colours and styles for their away apparel.
Blue, yellow and purple are most frequently used for the Spurs away shirt colour scheme. Recent launches have been dominated by darker blue colouring, whereas the 1980’s saw a mix of canary yellow and light blue editions of the Tottenham away jersey. Some of our favourite tops from the past are listed below:
- 1983-85: Light blue two-tone vertical stripe
- 1991-95: Yellow Umbro jersey with blue chequered style shoulder pattern
- 2009 -10: Navy blue Puma top with yellow trim
- 2014-15: Black Under Armour football top with yellow detail
Since Nike took over as the manufacturer, they have favoured navy blue for the alternate jerseys. The 2017/18 edition was an exceptionally simple navy strip with a white trim. For the 2018/19 Prem they have upped the design a little with the inclusion of a light blue transitional graphic on the sleeves with light blue accompanying items.
History of the Spurs Third Jersey
Having a new, specifically designed alternative top is a more recent phenomenon in the football world. The club has had a 3rdkit on and off since the 1980’s, and often the third option has been the previous away strips. However, over the past twenty years it has become increasingly common for the club to launch a third strip that is primarily used for European and Cup matches.
For some football clubs a third collection is an opportunity to express themselves is bold and random fashion with unusual colour choices and style options. However, they have primarily stuck with blue, yellow and purple colourways .
Nike often utilises a set template for the appearance of third attire. This template changes each season but all of the clubs who don Nike gear have a third jersey which uses the same template but featuring different colour-ways. 2018/19 had seen the introduction of a two-tone green Spurs third jersey, which looks spectacular and is sure to go down as one of the more memorable jerseys for the club.

Obviously, the iconic home kit is a fan favourite, but there are multiple reasons to choose one of the alternative kits instead.
Firstly, and this is a particular note for parents purchasing for their kids, is white the best choice for your child? Although we only stock official Nike merchandise, made to the highest standards, and the clothing is designed to be washed and worn the Tottenham Hotspur away kit in its darker hues is often a better choice.
When playing fixtures in the Prem, Cup and European at other stadiums, ties your favourite footballers have far fewer fans cheering them on due to the nature of seat allocation in football stadiums and the time, cost and other implications of travelling around to spectate at matches. By purchasing the official attire, you are highlighting your allegiance to the team during those more difficult games on opposition turf.
Whichever clothes you opt to purchase we are supplied directly from the Nike European distribution centres guaranteeing that you are shopping for genuine merchandise.
