Sporting Lisbon jerseys from 1982/1983: the first Le Coq Sportif
This season Le Coq Sportif became the supplier of the Sporting Clube de Portugal football equipment, remaining until 1987/88 when it was replaced by Hummel. The Le Coq Sportif jerseys were first introduced in November, before the kits did not have a brand name maker. Unbranded completely white away tops were worn, we do not know whether there were Le Coq Sportif away kits as well.
Le Coq Sortif made some of the Sporting jerseys most loved by the fans. These kits are almost unanimously considered classical, and they still endure in the memory of the Sporting supporters. This is true for the home jerseys, and also for the away shirts, either completely white or totally green. In this first year, however, the jerseys still had a very traditional design, with collars that were mostly round and looked a bit like some Sporting shirts of the late 1970s.
