Badges & Logos

Home Kit

Long
sleeves

Back in 1973, Leeds United and Admiral pioneered their custom made kits, which they copyrighted by including their respective logos. Both Leeds and Admiral had cleverly realised that by doing this, extra revenue could be generated by selling official replica kit to supporters.

England’s national team quickly turned to Admiral, and by the late 70’s many of the domestic clubs, including Oxford, had followed suit.

Oxford United’s Admiral strip appeared straight off-the-shelf, without a club crest.

Away Kit

A red and white away strip was introduced, similar in styling to the England strips of that time.

There are official team photos of the 1977 team wearing an all-white kit, however, I have yet to see photographs of the team playing a match in these colours.
