Match worn Sporting Lisbon jerseys from 1980/1981: Puma for the first time

Until 1980 Sporting shirts did not have an official brand maker. In 1981, still in the 1980/1981 season, Puma (which would be again the Sporting jersey supplier in the 21st Century), made for a brief time the Club's kits. After a while the traditional shirts with only the crest of the Club came back. At about the same time synthetic fabrics (nylon) started to replace the traditional cotton. Sponsors still did not make their appearance, which in Portugal happened later than in other European countries.

One of the big problems in assigning Sporting jerseys to a given season, as mentioned in the section dedicated to 1970s matchworn Sporting Clube de Portugal shirts, is that in the beginning of the 1980s there were jerseys with both the streamlined, stylised lion, probably machine-stitched, and crests with chubby lions apparently hand stitched. There are match worn jerseys, such as the one of Inacio in the game against Cosmos, and others (for instance, a Manoel Puma shirt with green collar, the photo is private and is not shown here), about which there is absolutely no doubt, but that look a lot more like the shirts worn by Sporting Clube de Portugal players in the mid-1970s.

Sporting Clube de Portugal

1980/81

MW home shirt, worn by Inácio, game against Cosmos 4 October 1980. However, the lion is characterisitic of the mid-70s, so this could have been identified as 1974/75, but the player confirmed the game.

Away Sporting Lisbon tops in 1980/81

In this season, the split green/white jerseys, that came later to be known as "Stromp shirts", were not worn by the football senior side. The away tops were white, with green collar and green endings of the sleeves. They were only worn in the home matches against Sporting de Espinho, Vitória de Setúbal, and Portimonense. In every other game, the traditional hooped shirts were worn. So, the away kit was only worn at home.
