Hello fellows,

After the success of our Eurocup in choosing the best retro football shirt from European national teams, we thought you might like that we held a tournament to choose the best retro football shirt in the history of the Champions League (football club jerseys). What do you think?

Now that we are all confined to our homes, sometimes worried, sometimes bored, it seems like a good way to have a good time during Easter. Since there are no official competitions we have at least one competition for classic soccer jerseys to choose the best one.

We have called it the Mega Champions Retro Shirts Competition. We want to choose the best shirt in the history of the Champions League. The goal is for you to have fun and try to get some smiles in these difficult times.

So we invite you to participate to our 2020 Mega Champions Retro Shirts Competition, a very special tournament that will be played on our Instagram (@ retrofootball.eu). For this, we will need your participation and collaboration.

UPDATE MAY 4, 2020:

Dear #Retrofootballers!

We have held a great championship on Instagram to choose the best shirt in the history of the Champions. Thank you all very much for your participation, there have been many votes and exchanges in our publications on the best soccer jersey in the Champions League. A vibrant tournament for incredible #retrofootballers.

Milan, mejor camiseta de la historia de la Champions

The winning retro football shirt has been the Milan 1988-89 jersey. A shirt that lives on in the memory of football fans. It is the shirt of one of the best Milan in history, which had in its ranks the legendary Dutch trio formed by Marco Van Basten, Ruud Gullit and Frank Rijkaard. The oranges were accompanied by great Italian players such as Franco Baresi, the tough Costacurta, Paolo Maldini, Carlo Ancelotti, Roberto Donadoni, or Daniele Massaro. In short, a team that trained on top of his Arrigo Sacchi race; with an innovative bilge of spaces playing with the very advanced defense. The look is classic with the sponsor Mediolanum, the scudetto of having won Serie A in the 1987-88 season. A legendary Milan shirt, ready to be customized with 9 by Van Basten or 10 by Gullit. Our tournament of the best shirt in the history of the Champions League has had a historic football shirt as a winner and belonging to a mythical team.

The final round of the tournament has been completed with the following models:

Juventus 1984-85 retro shirt: Vecchia Signora finally won their first European Cup in 1984, with a team that included the base of the Italian world champion team in 1982: Gaetano Scirea, Antonio Cabrini, Marco Tardelli, and Paolo Rossi. These were accompanied by two of the stars of that World Cup and the 1984 Euro Cup, the French Michel Platini, and the Polish Boniek. A historic shirt worthy finalist of our tournament, with the classic black and white stripes and the sponsor Ariston who spent a few years with the Turin team.

The final was an exciting match with Milan winning 55% to 45% and more than 1,000 votes for each model.

As for the semifinals, we also met two other Italian teams. Italy has been consolidated as the land of design when it comes to football jerseys. Thus, our tournament for the best shirt in the Champions ended with a final table of Italian teams. The semifinalists were:

Inter Milan 1990-91 retro shirt: the legendary Inter German jersey in history with Lothar Matthaus, Jurgen Klinsmann and Andreas Brehme. Three of Germany's world champions in Italy 90. A powerful Inter team that had other Italian players in its ranks such as Bergomi, Serena or goalkeeper Walter Zenga (remembered by the Italians for their failure in the semifinals of the World Cup in Italy 90 against Argentina of Maradona).

AS Roma 1979-80 retro shirt: The other semi-finalists was the late 70's AS Roma, with a shirt that the Romanisti supporters fell in love with. The model shows off the traditional red and orange stripes on the chest of the Roman team. A shirt that was worn by club legends such as Di Bartolomei, Bruno Conti, Carlo Ancelotti or the legendary striker Roberto Pruzzo.

Four legendary Calcio shirts, which have shaped semi-finals of great style and classic beauty. Long live to Calcio! Long live to Italy!

Thank you all very much for participating and for helping us make the confinement for Coronavirus a little more bearable. And of course, one of our #retrofootballers was awarded a mythical retro Champions shirt!
