Primary Colours and Away Variation

This was the start of the Robert Maxwell era which coincided with several seasons of unrivalled success. Maxwell used the Oxford United shirts to advertise his publishing empire. BPCC (British Printing & Communication Corporation) were the official club sponsors, although other sponsors featured (see below).

Oxford’s new V-neck and pinstriped shirts were a very common feature of football teams at that time.

Spall Sports didn’t do a great job of reproducing the club crest on the shirts. The Ox’s head was stretched and also had the curve at the top of the head inverted.

Change Colours

The choice of all red change colours continued with the Spall kits.
The same design template as the home shirt was used for the change colours.

TV Shirt

Prior to 1983, television companies refused to broadcast matches that featured sponsored football shirts.

For several matches Oxford United were required to wear plain shirts when the TV cameras were present.  

Sponsor Variation

From October onwards, nearly all of the home matches featured shirts with Maxwell’s Pergamon Press as the sponsor.



This was due to the local connection of Pergamon, whose headquarters were based just down the London Road at Headington Hill Hall (now Brookes University campus).

Old Garments

It would appear that the new Spall shirts were not ready for the start of the 82/83 campaign. For the first 3 matches Oxford United wore their old Adidas shirts.
