1993 Match magazine kits feature
The below images featured in the June 12, 1993 issue of Match, as they sought to canvass readers’ opinions on the best and worst kits of the season.
To give the compilers credit, they cast the net fairly wide considering the technology available to them at the time (we do wonder if the Sparta Prague kit had been replaced by then, though) and, bar Hull’s tiger-pattern, it’s not just the usual suspects.
We wouldn’t agree with all of the comments, but it’s still interesting, nonetheless. Of course, now we have to find the issue featuring the results…

Sparta Prague’s kit had indeed been replaced in 1993, with a design that was not unlike Liverpool’s kit of the same era. Even the shade of red was the same instead of Sparta’s usual wine red colour: _
Malta’s shirt reminded me of Northern Ireland’s shirt from a year or so previous. Umbro must have thought the design effect would be perfect for Malta in that is half-resembled a Maltese cross. Latvia used a similar design in burgundy at around the same time when Umbro’s old 91/92 catalogue had finally made its way across Europe.
Interesting Jon, I think you may just have solved a puzzle in my head regarding purported Bayern shirts!
