Primary Colours and Away Variations

The 81/82 Adidas shirts were subtly different to the shirts used the previous season. The shirt collars were less flared and the Adidas badge was now positioned lower on the chest.

Once again, the yellow change shorts were the old Admiral shorts used during the 1970’s.  For the second half of the season Oxford were finally provided with Adidas made yellow shorts.

Change Colours

There were no alterations to the red change kit, and in all probability it was the very same kit as the 1980 season.

Sponsored Shirts

From 31st October, Oxford United began to wear sponsored shirts for the very first time. Local newspaper ‘The Sunday Journal’ featured on the yellow shirts only.

In 1979 Liverpool were the first English club to wear sponsored shirts in the football league. This had opened the floodgates for all clubs to seek lucrative sponsorship deals.

However, TV companies were resolute in refusing to cover matches which featured sponsored shirts, resulting in clubs having to wear plain shirts for televised matches. (Coventry City FA Cup).
