Saprissa takes it even a step further: their nickname is Los Morados (literally, the purples).

Chris said...

Sounds like the ideal name to me!

It's amazing actually how few teams around the world wear purple shirts.

Is it an unlucky colour, I wonder?!?

You can add Poli Timisoara from Romania, as well.

Chris said...

Thank you very much, ratonbox... another one to add to the list! :)

Another 2 clubs:

RSC Anderlecht (Belgium)

I think Sky chose purple for the colours of Harchester United in 'Dream Team' because it was so distinctive from any other team.

Galway United and Cobh Ramblers (Roy Keane's first club) both play in purple/claret. You could say Aston Villa and West Ham too, depending on your definition of purple!

Back in the late 70's Hibs had a purple away shirt made by Bukta, the bukta name was across the chest in what I think may have been the earliest shirt sponsor in Britain.
