Wow, who wouldn't like this elegant design? The whole jersey is mainly red, and the Nike logo is gold. Under Arms - Black, red and green stripes on the sides of the garment. Zigzag stripes run along with the shirt, which also has a button polo collar.
This Portuguese traditional red and green combination, with a touch of gold, creates a noble atmosphere. The fold-over collar brings sophistication to the new home jersey, as does the patriotic red, green and black trim on the neckline and sleeves.

This Nike Sports 2021-2022 home jersey features the club's classic white and green, and the two colors are very harmonious. The neckline has a "V" shape and is solid green to match the style of the cuffs. For the first time since the 1990s, the sleeves of the Sporting 21-22 home jersey are solid white. The sleeves and mid-upper back of the shirt are white.
