Spanish Second-Division Soccer Team Says WTF, We’re Going With Tuxedo Jerseys


It’s the kind of thing you’d expect an American Minor League Baseball team to do. But while we wear our Star Wars-themed jerseys for one day and then auction them off for charity, Spain’s second-tier soccer team Cultural Leonesa plans to wear this item all season, as an alternate kit. I predict that this will add a touch of elegance to their constant flopping.

Not sure what the motivation was here, unless their owner is a big fan of The Great Gatsby. But that’s not the only odd thing going on in the Segunda B League. On Sunday, CD Lugo announced their alternating Octopus and Beer kits.

The London Daily Mirror:

Lugo, who last season finished 12th in the Spanish second tier, are sponsored by local brewers Estrella Galicia. As a result, one of the new shirts has been designed to look like a glass of beer.

The other has a picture of an octopus tentacle on the front, in homage to one of the most popular items of local cuisine in the Galician region, where the city is located.

Annnnd … last season, same league … La Hoya Lorca’s broccoli jersey:

Stop it, Spain.

While we’re on the subject, here are this season’s best Star Wars-themed Minor League Baseball jerseys:
