Are you heading to an AFC Blackpool FC match? Then paint the stands tangerine with the official Blackpool football kit. The team first wore tangerine in the 1923 to 1924 season upon the recommendation from Albert Hargreaves, a referee. Before choosing tangerine as their official colour, Blackpool had tried out several others including blue and white shirts, red or white shirts, yellow, red and even black. After World War 1, the team adopted navy-blue shorts and white shirts. It was not until 1934 that the team eventually changed to alternating light- and dark-blue striped shirts. The same colours have made a re-appearance in the mid-1990s and 2002. Due to public pressure, the team settled on tangerine as the official colour of their kits, and they were alternated with white shorts. Blackpool FC also uses tangerine socks, but navy blue was once used in the late 80s and early 90s. In 1997, Uri Geller said that an all-blue away strip on the kit would not bring the club the wins they needed due to psychic lack of energy among players. The kit was worn in a match at Bristol City, where the team succumbed to the first defeat of the season. So, as you head out to show your support, wear the colours with pride, if you need to, you can apply now for a loan so you can purchase AFC Blackpool FC home and away kits.
