I got this shirt way back in high school way before ever setting foot in the Czech Republic—I think it was the Mazda sponsorship that had attracted me since the number one thing on my mind back then had been getting a car. The shirt is a very standard Adidas fabric and I have half a mind to think that the Sigma Olomouc details are heat pressed onto this Adidas template from the era by someone in a back room with a heat press machine. After all, I feel like if I wash this one too many times the writing will all peal off and I’ll be left with a blue Adidas shirt! Turkish football fans will remember Sigma Olomouc for their 7-1 thrashing of Fenerbahce in the 1991-92 UEFA Cup. The team have since fallen far; currently they play in the Czech second division.
