Boca Juniors 1981 (Home) (Crew)

In 1981 Diego Maradona signed for Boca Juniors.  His second game was the Superclasico against river Plate at La Bombonera.  Boca defeated River 3-0 with Maradona scoring a goal after dribbling past Tarantini and Fillol.  Boca won the league title that season - the only title won by Maradona in the Argentine domestic league.

Legend has it that in 1906, Boca played Nottingham de Almagro. Both teams wore so similar shirts that the match was played to decide which team would get to keep it. Boca lost, and decided to adopt the colors of the flag of the first boat to sail into the port at La Boca. This proved to be a Swedish ship, therefore the yellow and blue of the Swedish flag were adopted as the new team colours. The first version had a yellow diagonal band, which was later changed to a horizontal stripe.
