Aston Villa: The 5 Best Aston Villa Jerseys

Aston Villa

Aston Villa are one of the most historic English football clubs. With a rich and successful history, Villa are known all over the world. This article will look at five of Aston Villa’s best jerseys.

Home shirt 1982

We are starting this list off with the home shirt from Aston Villa’s most historic season. The 1981/82 season saw the Villains win the European Cup against Bayern Munich.

They wore white during that final, but it is the home shirt from that season that makes the list. Manufactured by Le Coq Sportif, this shirt is as simple and classic as it gets. The standout claret and blue colourway and a central badge is all this jersey needs to achieve the brilliance it does.

Home shirt 1988

Villa’s home shirt from the 1988/89 season was certainly a beauty in what was quite  a forgettable season. 

Hummel manufactured many kits with a similar style to Aston Villa’s, most notably Denmark’s jersey from the 1986 World Cup. This shirt was certainly not the usual Villa style, but it was one of the rare occasions when switching things up went well.

Villa finished 17th in the First Division that season, narrowly avoiding relegation under the management of Graham Taylor.

Home shirt 1994

The 1993/94 season is definitely a nostalgic one for Villa fans. Under Ron Atkinson, the club won the League Cup, beating Manchester United 3-1 in the final.

Their home shirt from that season is a fan favourite. Thick pinstripes and the iconic Müller sponsor make this jersey one of the most recognisable in Premier League history.

Away shirt 1994

If you liked that home shirt from the 1993/94 season, you’ll love the away strip. The green, black and red colour combination mixed perfectly to create a stunning away jersey.

This shirt was worn during the 3-1 League Cup final victory against Manchester United, with the goals coming from Dean Saunders and Dalian Atkinson.

For all Villa fans, this jersey is a must have.

Home shirt 1996

For many Aston Villa fans, this is the shirt to buy if you are looking for nostalgia. Reebok created a classic with this home shirt from the 1995/96 season. The collar and lion patterns on the jersey make it stand out brilliantly, not to mention the “AST Computers” sponsor which fits the strip perfectly.

It was an incredibly successful season for the Villains. Under the guidance of manager Brian Little, the club finished fourth in the Premier League and once again won the League Cup, beating Leeds United 3-0 in the final.
