England Home Kit 1980-83 - Your Favourite Admiral Kit

England Home Kit 1980-83 - Your Favourite Admiral Kit

After a successful voting period between December 5th to December 12th, which was held to find out ‘Your Favourite Admiral Kit’ of all time? On popular demand the England Home Kit 1980-83 was crowned the Winner!!

The winner of the vote for 'Your Favourite Admiral Kit' the England Home Kit, was even more controversial than our first effort in 1974. However this is what the fans wanted and it became as ever popular back in 1980 as it does now. The shirt featured large blue and red shoulder panels accompanied by a slim V-neck. The shorts remained royal blue and were now trimmed with an intricate arrangement of red, white and blue on each leg. The socks remained the same as those on the previous kit. The team wore this kit for three games during the Spain 1982 World Cup: with wins over Czechoslovakia (2-0) and Kuwait (1-0), along with a 0-0 draw with Spain in the second stage.
