Real Sporting de Gijón is a Spanish soccer team from Gijón, Asturias. The club currently plays in the Spanish Segunda División or Liga Adelante following its relegation from La Liga at the end of last season.
The Sporting de Gijón returned to the Spanish La Liga for the first time since the 1997/98 season at the start of the 2007/08 season. It placed in 14th, 15th and 10th positions in the three seasons prior to the 2011/12 campaign when a 19th place finish consigned Los Rojiblancos to relegation.
Now in twelfth place in La Liga Adelante after eleven matches played, Sporting de Gijón launched its 2012/13 home, away and third kits before the start of the new season. The club maintains its usual red and white striped home kit for another year while its away shirt is red and its third jersey is predominantly white. All three kits use the Kappa Kombat design also used by the 12/13 Torino, Evian TG, Derby County and Fulham FC home and away jerseys.
