Pioneer clothing items meant for football were made in 1526, thanks to king Henry VII of England. He, at the time owned a great wardrobe.

In 1860, Football teams used whatever dress to play game but wore coloured caps or sashes to distinguish a selection from another.

Before then ,around 1840 earliest evidence of coloured shirts had started existing in the game, beginning with the English public school football team.

In 1867, a law was passed by the association of football regarding proper utilization of jerseys .it suggested that teams should henceforth stripe jerseys of one colour ,say red for uniqueness.

This was to prevent confusion in the cherished soccer game.

The first standard strip emerges in 1870, with many clubs opting colours amended with the schools or organisations from which they got their rise.

In 1890, a law is passed that no two member teams could register similar colours ,this to avoid clashes.The decision was taken when the football league is born.

Progressively, the 1890 law is relinquished and another law was enforced.
The law stated that all teams must have a second set of shirts in a different colour available.
Sponsored logos started being endorsed on jerseys way back in the 20th century, due to the rise of advertisement. It is during this period that a replica of strips, were made available for fans to purchase, generating revenue to clubs.

In the Genesis, soccer actors wore thick cotton shirts ,knickerbockers and heavy rigid leather boots.

At first players wore numbers from 1 to 11, corresponding roughly to their playing positions but it’s not longer the case in professional football today.

Juventus ,in 1903 adopted a black and white strip ,inspired by Notts county. The jersey is still famous within the squad today.

In 1904, players were forced to put on Knickerbockers that must cover theirs knees, by so doing teams began wearing them much shorter.

Shorts became preferred in the 1960’s.

Football strips exist in many colours nowadays. Some are made to portray country’s national colours whilst others remain identical.

Almost all carry logos of the sponsors .

Cameroon national teams is sponsored by Puma though the Lioness and Lions most often dressed in the traditional colours “Green, Red and Yellow” which are colours of the nation’s flag.same apply to many national outfits across the planet.
