Football Kits with Animals on! 🐒

Here at Retro Football Kits we are wild for football shirts. So with that in mind we thought we would bring you a selection of our favourite football kits that have featured animals on them.

Pescara -  In 2019 Italian Serie B team Pescara started a competition "Give A Kick to Covid-19", which gave fans the chance to design the club's new 2020 special shirt. The winner was six-year-old Luigi & his design was made by kit supplier Errea & worn by the players. 🐬 


Roma - The Lupetto badge has adorned Roma shirts since the 80’s. Birthed from the original crest of Romulus & Remus suckling a she-wolf, which is an icon that represents the city of Rome. During the 95/96 season Roma’s home shirt featured a big Lupetto in the base of the shirt. 🐺

Jose Luis Chilavert - Nicknamed ‘El Buldog’, legendary Paraguayan goalkeeper Jose Luis Chilavart wore this kit sporting a huge bulldog whilst playing for Argentinian side Vélez Sarsfield. 🐕 

Napoli - Not a club to shy away from releasing kits that grab your attention, Napoli’s kits for the 2018/19 season were definitely on the wild side. The outfield shirts featured a hidden panther and the goalkeeper shirts looked to be made of snakeskin, with the head of a snake on the reverse. 🐍

Inter Milan - After their treble winning season Inter released this classic away shirt for the 2010/11 season which featured the Biscione, a symbol of Milan. The Biscione is a snake in the act of consuming a child, which was the emblem of the ‘House of Visconti’ for centuries. 🐍

Loja Club Deportivo - The Spanish Tercera División side really took their shirt sponsorship seriously during the 2018/19 season with all of their shirts displaying 5 prawns across them. Frozen food company Apolo really got their money's worth. 🦐

Mons Calpe FC - This unusual but stunning away shirt was released by the Gibraltan club which features the Rock of Gibraltar on the front and barbary Macaque Monkeys, which are native to the island, on the back. 🐒


Athletic Club - During the 97/98 season Athletic Club released this Anniversary Shirt that featured a lion based on the club’s nickname Los Leones (The Lions). It was only worn in friendlies against both Roma & Real Betis. We think this should have been worn more as it’s a roaring success for us. 🦁

China - The China 2018 away shirt is possibly the greatest shirt that never was. Causing hysteria among shirt collectors when pictures were leaked online, it was rejected at the last minute by the Chinese F.A. so was sadly never released. 🐉


Pumas UNAM - Synonymous with featuring their crest largely on their shirts, it first occurred during the 1975/76 season. Originally a college team, the Puma was in a triangle formed by 3 circles, representing the university's three fundamental tasks: Teaching, culture, and sport. 🐅
