Since 2003 the Sporting jersey has evolved countless times and certainly it will continue to do so. The goal is to put together a kit with meaningful colors to honor every inspiring moment of our brief history.
Below is the story and illustration of the different kits worn by Sporting Astoria over the years.
Spring 2003 Inaugural Season - Summer 2004
The first Sporting kit was a white Adidas Squadra jersey model with a redesigned Sporting logo by Luis Romero, Jr. At the time importance was given to marketing the team name in the front of their jersey and not anything else.

Fall 2003 - Summer 2008
