The Sporting Lisbon jersey in 1987/1988: Hummel, and the sponsors

After Le Coq Sportif left, the Danish Hummel brand became the supplier of the official Sorting Lisbon shirt. Without much innovation, the Hummel kits are honest and simple, with a beautiful green. Only the tyical pattern along the sleeves stray from a pure green white hooped jersey.

The Stromp jersey is where Hummel did innovate, too much. Even if it actually looks good, it is outside the boundaries of what the most classic and noble Sporting Lisbon jersey should be.

Together with the change in supplier, sponsorhips made their appearance in the shirts. From this season on, it becomes easier to know exactly in which season a given jersey was worn, always taking into account that the pre-seasons almost always bring some surprises, and that Sporting Clube de Portugal had, along the years, very many jerseys that strayed from the norm.

The first sponsor was FNAC, the air conditioned company with no relationship with the French media retailer. This year's match worn Sporting Lisbon jerseys can be told apart from the following season's, where FNAC also was the sponsor due to the fabric rectangle in which the FNAC letters were inserted.

As for LCS, also Hummel replica jerseys were sold to the supporters. The quality of the fabric and the care of detail are very different from the match worn shirts. Replica jerseys are an important source of revenue for the Club, and have been sold in every season since.

One interesting note is that Sporting already had shirts with sponsorship in 1974/75, in a friendly game in France.

All green and all white away jerseys were worn by the players. In some matches in the beginning of the season, including at least one league game, green jerseys without sponsor were worn.

Different font types were used for the player numbers on the back of the jerseys, including the typical Hummel lettering and other ones as well.
