Admiral And The FA
THE ADMIRAL jersey
Admiral also produced kits for many of the NASL teams during the late 1970s and early 1980s, and had a replica licensing deal with all clubs, including the New York Cosmos and for two seasons produced the uniforms for every team in the MISL. In 1978 an audience of 76,000 watched the New York Cosmos beat the Tampa Bay Rowdies in the North America Soccer League Championships in New York. Admiral supplied kit for the New York Cosmos. The kit was designed by Ralph Lauren and made by Admiral.

THE ADMIRAL fa cup final
In 1977 United reached the final again, beating Liverpool wearing a red Admiral v-neck jersey with three narrow red hoops on the trim. The white Admiral away kit was very controversial. It featured three black vertical stripes from the left shoulder but after a legal battle with Adidas the jersey was changed to have four stripes (which lasted only a few games). An agreement was reached and United wore the Admiral 3 stripe kit for the next four seasons. A separate blue kit was also designed for the first time for European Cup games.
