Bad Football Shirts

As one of the most popular and beloved sports in the world, football has seen its fair share of iconic and memorable moments on and off the pitch. However, some of the most unforgettable moments in the history of the sport have been created by the outfits that the players wear on the field.

While some football kits have become iconic and synonymous with the team and the sport, others have not been so lucky. In this blog, we will take a look at the ten worst football shirts of all time.

  1. Norwich City - The Bird Poo Kit In 1992, Norwich City unveiled a new kit that was primarily yellow with green splodges. Unfortunately, the design was so poor that it looked like the players had been splattered with bird poo. It's no surprise that the kit was only worn once.

  2. Manchester United - The Grey Kit In 1996, Manchester United unveiled a grey kit that would go down in history as one of the worst football shirts ever. The players complained that they couldn't see each other on the pitch, and the kit was retired after just one match.

  3. Coventry City - The Brown Kit In 1978, Coventry City decided to try something different and released a brown kit. The kit was so unpopular that the club only wore it once, and it was never seen again.

  4. Bradford City - The Rubik's Cube Kit In 1992, Bradford City released a kit that was inspired by the Rubik's Cube. The kit featured a mix of different colours and was so visually confusing that it made it hard to see the players on the pitch.

  5. Hull City - The Tiger Print Kit In 1992, Hull City unveiled a tiger print kit that was so garish and over-the-top that it looked like something out of a bad 80s music video.

  6. AC Milan - The Gold Kit In 2007, AC Milan released a gold kit that was supposed to celebrate the club's success. However, the kit was so shiny and ostentatious that it looked like something out of a disco.

  7. Sheffield Wednesday - The Orange Kit In 1999, Sheffield Wednesday decided to release an orange kit. While orange is a popular colour in football, the kit was so bright that it was almost impossible to look at without squinting.

  8. Atletico Madrid - The Leopard Print Kit In 1992, Atletico Madrid released a leopard print kit that was so over-the-top and tacky that it looked like something out of a Las Vegas strip club.

  9. Arsenal - The "Blue Lightning" Kit In 1995, Arsenal released a blue and white striped kit that was supposed to look like lightning bolts. However, the design was so poor that it looked like the players were wearing pyjamas.

  10. Newcastle United - The Brown Ale Kit In 2000, Newcastle United released a kit that was inspired by the club's main sponsor, Brown Ale. The kit featured a brown and gold colour scheme that was so unappealing that it was quickly retired.

In conclusion, while some football kits have gone down in history as iconic and unforgettable, others have not been so lucky. From the bizarre to the downright ugly, these ten football shirts will go down in history as some of the worst ever created.
