In the 19th century Turin was a small town until the start of factories in the 1870s. As a result of the wealth of local merchants the first Turin football club, Juventus, was established at the end of the century. At its establishment, on 1 November 1897, it was called Sport-Club Juventus.
The black and white strips, that today is primarily associated more with Juventus than any other football club, actually has its background in England and one of the first football clubs, Notts County. At the beginning of the 20th century, when the team needed to replace the washed out pink shirts, one of their English players was asked to arrange something from his home country. The shirts that arrive were Notts County replicas.
