 The History of Birmingham City Football Kit   
Birmingham City FC Kit   

Birmingham City football club was founded by a group called the Small Health Alliance (a group of cricket players) in 1875. In 1888 they changed their name to Small Health, dropping the Alliance part when they became the first football club to be a limited company. In 1905 the Small Health was renamed as Birmingham Football Club, and it was renamed again in 1943 to become Birmingham City Football Club.

In the earliest days of the club in the late nineteenth century the players would wear any blue shirts that they could find. When the official uniform of what would become Birmingham City Football Club was first designed, it was decided that the players would wear a white sash and white shorts along with a dark blue shirt. The earliest revisions of the uniform over the next few years would see the sash removed, as well as briefly experiment with darker colors with a black shirt uniform in 1889 which caused spectators to complain that the team was practically invisible out on the field. The basic formula of a blue shirt, white shorts and blue socks then remained the same for several years, although the shade of blue used for the shirt went through some changes in lightness. From 1915 to 1927 a change was made to the shirt design which included a white chevron (V shape) on the front of the chest stretching up to the shoulder blades. After this was dropped the shirt of Birmingham City Football Club remained plain royal blue throughout the years of World War II, although the socks for the uniform went through some variations between white, dark blue and striped patterns. Between 1971 and 1976 the design of the Birmingham City Football Club uniform went through its most notable change with the addition of a single wide white stripe down the center, also known as a "penguin strip". While this design only survived for five years before the uniform went back to the plain royal blue shirt, the penguin strip has recently been brought back for the 2007-2008 season uniform, following the 2006-2007 season design with a much smaller stylized stripe along the right side of the shirt front.

Sponsors of Birmingham City Football Club over the years have include Ansells from 1983 to 1985, Co-op Milk for the season of 1986-1987, P J Evans for 1987-1988, Evans Halshaw for 1988-1999, Mark One from 1989 until 1992, Triton from 1992 to 1995, Auto Windscreens from 1995 to 2001, and flybe.com from 2003 to 2007. In the 2006-2007 season the Birmingham City Football Club finished second in the Football League Championship and was promoted; their current home colours are a royal blue shirt with a wide white penguin stripe running vertically on the front, white shorts and white socks. The away colors mostly reverse this color scheme with a white shirt, royal blue shorts and white socks, and the third kit for Birmingham City Football Club is all red from the top to the bottom - a red shirt, red shorts and red socks. If your child is a fan of Birmingham, buying a football club kit uniform with the latest Birmingham City Football Club design is a good way to encourage him athletically.
