Coventry city 25 anniversary fa cup football shirts

THE Sky Blues will celebrate the 25th anniversary of the club picking up the FA Cup by wearing a 1987-style strip for this season's third round tie against Southampton.

The blue and white striped shirt with navy shorts and sky socks is a throwback to the season when City overcame all the odds to make it through to the final where they beat Tottenham 3-2 at Wembley.

Should Coventry progress through the rounds this season, they will wear the kit for home matches and, where possible, on their travels too.


And City fans can buy a limited edition replica of the shirt but just 1,987 are being made and are expected to be snapped up quickly.

Some may notice the club's kit sponsor City Link is missing from the replica shirt.

To protect the heritage of the shirt City Link kindly agreed to not have their logo on the 1987 limited edition shirts celebrating the historic cup win. However the logo will be added to the players' shirts being worn during Saturday's FA Cup clash with Southampton.

Justin Tose, commercial director at Coventry City, said: "The cup final win in 1987 is the greatest moment in the club's history and it's right that those achievements should be honoured.

"It was a fantastic era for the club and that blue and white striped shirt is synonymous with the famous victory.

"The day we take on Southampton will be almost 25 years to the day that George and John's Coventry City beat Bolton Wanderers in the third round to begin that great journey.

"So we will take that opportunity to celebrate that time and the shirt will be part of that. We are also ordering in a very limited number of replicas to allow City fans to buy and we believe it will be popular."

The 1987 tribute shirt will be priced at £39.99, available in adult sizes only (small to XXXL).

Thanks to Willem

Class, nice throwback shirt, well done and the Puma shirt material is great. Limited quantity makes it a proper fans shirt.

Good shirt - borrows nicely from the 87 final shirt, although that actually featured a sponsor in Granada Bingo.

Nice. Puma have done some brilliant anniversary kits for Motherwell and Partick Thistle and this looks to continue that.

Not a Coventry fan but their opponents should let them win and progress so we can see these retro shirts as many times as possible! and even if the opponent is the home team and wears a kit that clashes with this beautiful shirt THEY should be forced to change not Coventry! lol :D
