With the advent of televised games, and games played at various times of the day and night it was inevitable that a variation on the humble football jumper, jersey, guernsey became necessary.

Football commentators, fellow players, fans, watchers and listeners, unable to be at the game needed to be able to differentiate between the players of each club.

Most clubs have adopted an away or clash strip.  It uses their teams basic colours but also uses white, grey or expands on one of the traditional colours.

A good example of this are the Richmond Tigers football jumper, jersey, guernsey that has a greater use of yellow in their away strip than that of the traditional home guernsey. St Kilda Saints football club have employed a greater use of the colour white. Essendon Bombers football club have incorporated the  use of the colour grey into their away strip .

The changing colour of an AFL Football Jumper

Saturday, May 28th, 2011

The humble AFL Football Jumper is no more . Packaged in aerodynamic fabric , now the traditional colours have changed . Carlton, won in the baby blue again last night , and the Tigers replacement of their traditional sash , with a dreamtime painting last weekend , has made the jumpers a highly sought after item .

Melbourne Demons , are yet to replicate their hot pink strip , of a few years ago, which they  wore as a Breast Cancer fundraiser , but it appears the skys the limit as to who adopts what strip when .

Collingwood , are sticking doggedly to their black and white though. Ironic really , as Nicky Winnar , great indigenous Sainter , lifted his footy jumper,  to show his black skin , in the last game the Magpies played against the Saints , at Victoria Park.
