Very old Sporting Lisbon shirts, up to the 1960s

This page shows shirts and jerseys from Sporting Lisbon up until the 1960s. It is difficult to establish the history of the Sporting football kit up to the 60s based on real shirts. It is not easy to find such old jerseys, particularly considering that at the time there were no replica shirts made for the fans, only those worn by the players on the pitch.

All of these are match worn shirts, or eventually shirts prepared for some player who sat on the bench or was not even called. At the time, specific players were not assigned a specific shirt number, the jerseys of the first squad were numbered 1 to 11. The current Sporting Lisbon jerseys are rarely as simple and beautiful as these ones.

Sporting Clube de Portugal

Early 1950s model. Shirt declared as worn 2 August 1931 by Manuel Baeta Antunes in a friendly against Vasco da Gama. Sporting lost 6-0. Similar shirts, with the Lion symbol, are typical of the 1950s. This is either a reserve side team or from the Tertúlia Sportinguista do Rio De Janeiro, founded by Manuel Baeta Antunes in Brasil
