Sporting Lisbon green white hoops


European football shirts - green white hoops

This page shows shirts from European clubs that also have the green white hoops or stripes, or that are similar to the Stromp shirt (one side green, one side white). There are several sports represented besides football, such as rugby. From Turkey to Sweden, from Poland to France, everywhere in Europe there are teams that wear the green white colours of Sporting Lisbon.

There are probably many more teams in Europe that wear the green white hoops! If you know any, let me know! But first check the English teams section, and of course the Scottish, Welsh and Irish teams section. And see the links above for American, African, Asian and Australian green white hooped kits!

You can also see, in their dedicated sections, some Sporting Lisbon old shirts, mostly match worn, as well as the new Sporting Lisbon shirt.

Benetton Rugby

Italy. Not everyone knows that Benetton sponsors a rugby team in its home town. The Benetton Treviso rugby jerseys are very appreciated, but difficult to obtain outside Italia.

Something special: The Royale Association Athlétique Louviéroise, the wolves

This is a fantastic replica football shirt from a traditional club formed in 1913, just one year before the first world war. Initially called A.A. Louviéroise, the club got the Royal in its official name in 1937, and became known as RAAL, often called La Louvière, and the team are the wolves. In 2009, after a couple of years of uncertainty, La Louviere joined with another local club, RACS Couillet, and the resulting club is called Football Couillet La Louvière. A good friend got this shirt for me, enduring cats and dogs pouring from the sky.

La Louvière RAAL

Belgium. Fantastic replica jersey, now impossible to obtain. After its involvement in the 2006 Belgian betting scandal, this classic 1913 club disappeared into Football Couillet La Louvière

Something special: a football shirt from Gdansk, in Poland

Actually, Lechia means "Poland", so this team is called something like "Polish Gdansk". Formed in 1945 as BOP Baltia Gdansk, it soon changed the name to Lechia. This is perhaps inspired by the the fact that the city has been ruled by several different states in over one thousand years of history. After some more name changes, in 2009 Lechia Gdansk S.A. was agreed on. In any case, this is a beautiful replica football shirt.

Lechia Gdansk

Poland, this particular shirt only has hoops on the front. Lechia Gdansk won several Polish titles in the 1950s and 1980s.

Something special: another hooped shirt from Belgium

The flemish city Mechelen, called Malines in French, belongs to the region of Antwerpen (which means "hand-throw"). Like most of Flanders, Mechelen is home to much flamboyant Gothic architecture - in fact, Flanders is probably Europe's most beautiful and best kept secret (together with Slovakia and Portugal). Both KRC Mechelen and KV Mechelen were founded in 1904. In case you wonder, it was KV Mechelen, which we don't like because its colours are red (and yellow), that won the Cup Winners Cup and the European Super Cup in 1988.

KRC Mechelen

Belgium, 2009/2010. Known as Racing Mechelen, this Flemish club was formed in 1904 with the French version of the town's name, Malines.
