Classic and Retro Valencia Football Shirts

Formed in 1919, Valencia's traditional kit comprises of white shirts, black shorts and white socks. Traditionally the shirt featured non-contrasting collar and cuffs, a la Real Madrid. But in the late 90s with the pressures of creating new bespoke strips growing, black trim began to appear. More recently orange has been firmly ensconced in to the Valencia kit colour palette, and this colour has also often appeared as an additional trim on the strip. For many years, away from home the distinctive colours of the Senyera flag (and of course the Spanish national football team) made up the colours of the team's change strip, often in the form of red and yellow stripes combined with blue shorts. It was in this kit that Valencia claimed a famous victory over Real Madrid in the 1979 Copa del Rey final. Over the years though the red and yellow stripes appear to have blended together and the resultant orange is now the colour that the club seem to favour away from the Estadio Mestalla (the fact that the area is famed for its sweet orange trees has also probably got something to do with it!) However, in 2011 Valencia's current kit suppliers, Joma, launched a special Senyera red and yellow striped shirt (trimmed with blue) as part of a club initiative to produce retro football versions of memorable past Valencia jerseys.Royal blue has occasionally also been worn as a change colour and more recently black has also been favoured, as seen in examples by Nike in 2008 and Kappa two years later. Other Valencia kit manufacturers in the modern era have included adidas, Ressy, Puma, Luanvi and Kappa.As Spain's third biggest club after Real Madrid and Barcelona, Valencia have never short of attracting a sponsor and since 1984 Edesa, Cip, Ford, Terra Mitica and Toyota have all featured on the Valencia shirt. Most recently online betting company Unibet have sponsored the team. If you want to cash in on your old Valencia Jersey’s please click the following link Sell Shirts
