Retro Shirts

Delighted to get details from my friends at Copa of two new retro ranges they have launched. If you are a fan of Portuguese or football, these might be for you!

OFFICIAL SL BENFICA RETRO COLLECTION

Thanks to their glorious history SL Benfica is widely supported all across the world. The club’s honour roll speaks for itself, boasting records for most Portuguese League titles and Taça de Portugal trophies. Benfica also claimed two consecutive European Cups in 1961 and 1962 and have featured in a total of 10 European finals. This extensive licensed retro collection captures the essence of the club’s rich history. Our classic retro shirts recreate many of the club’s most celebrated shirt designs through the years. The collection also includes a retro jacket and a retro-inspired T-shirt. All retro items from the collection are packaged and dispatched in luxury gift boxes.

The collection can be found on copafootball.com, in our flagshipstore in Amsterdam and via selected retailers & online resellers worldwide

NEW FC NANTES RETRO COLLECTION

Exactly one year ago our first retro collection with FC Nantes was launched, including the famous “Europe 1-shirt”. There was a musical footnote to that jersey: when football-mad Bob Marley was scheduled to perform at the club’s La Beaujoire stadium back in 1980, the reggae singer donned that Nantes shirt and captained his Wailers team in a 5-a-side pre-concert match against a selection made up of Nantes players.

This new collection consists of two retro shirts, a retro jacket and a pair of retro inspired casual socks. In the 1982 – 1983 retro shirt, Nantes comfortably won the Ligue 1 title with the most prolific attack and meanest defence in the division. The main goal threat however came from the deadly Yugoslav striker Vahid Halihodžic who hit 27 goals in 36 appearances to finish as Ligue 1’s top scorer.

This Nantes collection can also be found on copafootball.com, in the official FC Nantes fanstores and via selected retailers & online resellers.
