Retro Uhlsport football shirts

Formed originally in 1948 in Germany as Haase & Uhl OHG, Uhlsport began life focusing mainly on football boot production. As the years passed they branched out in the manufacture of additional football sportswear accessories such as shinguards, footballs and goalkeeping gloves before deciding to move into the clothing market. The company’s focus on goalkeepers continues though, and today they are one of the few brands to produce boots specifically for goalies.

Football teams who have worn Uhlsport include FC Union Berlin and FC Kaiserslautern. In the UK though their appearances have been few with only a handful of clubs wearing the brand, most notably Blackburn Rovers in the late 1990s, Halifax Town, Gillingham and Bristol City.

Today though Uhlsport can be spotted amongst the lower leagues of many teams both in Europe and worldwide. The company has also specialised in the popular German sport of handball.
