Galatasaray – pictures of current and old Galatasaray shirts

A Galatasaray shirt can bring forward a lot of emotions.. But it is also a football shirt that really catches the eye.

The Turkish club has more than 100 years of history wearing the red and yellow colors. The red and yellow was a bit different on the older Galatasaray shirts, but there is still no doubt when you see the shirts.

One thing a lot of people don’t know is though that for a short period of time, just after the club as established in 1905, the Galatasaray jerseys were first red/white, and later black/yellow, before they ended up in the well known red and yellow colors.
