As soccer appeals to people of all ages the list of soccer memorabilia and merchandise is endless and grows daily. Some of the hot-selling soccer merchandise includes – Soccer Part Packs, Soccer Plates, Soccer Sling Bags, Soccer Necklaces, Soccer Magnets, Soccer Player Posters, Soccer Blankets, Soccer Napkins, Soccer Tablecloths, Soccer Flags, Soccer Whistles, Soccer Memo Pads, Soccer Metallic Bounce Balls, Soccer Stickers, Soccer Key Chains, Soccer Dog Tags, Soccer Visors, Soccer Caps, Soccer Mouse Pads, Soccer Stress Balls, Soccer Earrings, Soccer Paperweights and the biggest of World Cup 2010 Soccer Vuvuzelas.
Soccer fans are more vocal than those of any other game because so much happens so fast in such short moments of time. The game is constantly changing and fans love to comment and get loud while watching the game. This is probably the reason why the Vuvuzela was such a hit of World Cup 2010. Soccer is called the beautiful game and is undoubtedly the most widespread and popular sport across the world. Soccer fans are known to be almost fanatical and extreme buyers of soccer merchandise. The game and everything attached to it has a very strong pull for these fans.
The biggest soccer merchandise item is undoubtedly the jerseys. Every club has unique jersey designs and every world cup has the jersey designs for the countries changing, though the basic colors and elements stay the same. Fans always want the latest versions unless an older design has nostalgic value in the form of their country of favorite club having been winners at the time.
Soccer Merchandise is available at both official and unofficial sellers. For example if you want the exact same Vuvuzela that was used by the crowds in the World Cup you will of course have to source it from the official Vuvuzela company’s website. Other merchandise too is either sold from the official FIFA authorized outlets. The difference between the official merchandise sellers and the general sellers is most often the logos and the official emblems. True soccer lovers really only care about the game and most of the time it doesn’t matter to them if the FIFA logo or other official logos are present on the items they purchase. They just want soccer.
No other sport probably has so many themed items available as merchandise as soccer. It is proof that soccer is the most popular sport in the world. No matter what the colors are on the latest official soccer ball, the black and white soccer ball is forever the most recognizable symbol of soccer.
The best thing about soccer merchandise is that it is in demand at all times and all-round the year. The demand for soccer merchandise peaks phenomenally around the world cup and other major soccer events but show a soccer fan some soccer merchandise and see how tough it is for them to resist buying at least one item.
Even those who are not hard-core soccer fans find cannot resist the charms of the black and white ball. Any soccer merchandise item is sporty, young, energetic and youthful and makes a good gift almost at every occasion.

Adidas released today, after a very long tease campaign, the 12-13 AC Milan home shirt. I’m not particularly impressed by it and am looking forward to see the release of the 12-13 AC Milan away shirt which is supposed to be this beauty (on the right). Anyway, here are the photos, videos and the press release:
Press release from Adidas:
The new jersey is going to debut May 2nd for the match against Atalanta.
April 30th 2012
A cutting-edge communication campaign reminding the origins of AC Milan Club, born in 16th December 1899. The debut of the new redandblack jersey will be set for May 2nd during the match against Atalanta.
That’s how adidas and the most successful Club in the world have chosen to present the redandblack jersey for the 2012/13 season. Once again 2 brands, that represent the excellence in football, have found an innovative way to communicate with all the Rossoneri supporters around the world and enhance Italian and Milanese roots of A.C. Milan.
The idea of the communication campaign, created by TBWA\Italy for adidas, is to rediscover the reasons that 113 years ago inspired Kilpin and all the founders of Milan Cricket and Football Club, by retracing the sites where the story took place.
The communication campaign is set by a press campaign of three subjects where players are portrayed in front of three symbolic sites in Milan (Castello Sforzesco, Colonne di San Lorenzo and San Siro stadium), and an activation on adidas and AC Milan digital platform – through their official websites – Facebook, Twitter and Youtube, thanks to three viral videos, made on the streets of a very gothic Milan, from the dusk till dawn of the next day. That’s the night, when the most significant moments of AC Milan history took place and unforgettable national and international trophies were won.
That’s because in a December night, among the liberty buildings of the historic center of Milan, just a few steps from the Duomo, began the history of AC Milan, in that night Herbert Kilpin said: “We are a team of devils. Our colours are red as fire, and black, to invoke fear in our opponents”.
The videos show key places in AC Milan history , during this story some details of the new jersey, are revealed, step by step. The Rossoneri fans had to find out on Facebook, like after like, the three episodes and also the day on which the jersey will be fully revealed.
Back to the wider stripes: 5 in total including 3 black and 2 red. The polo collar is back after three years, with “AC Milan” labeled on its back and the three white stripes are confirmed. The main detail is an Italian flag’s reference, in vertical, between the black and red stripes, and on the front side this detail is recognizable by a green oblique insert, and another one red, interposed with a white neck.
In the next season the AC Milan football players will have only one shirt that includes both TECHFIT ™ and FORMOTION ™ technologies. The new jersey will not have the TPU stripes anymore, but it will still ensure the advantages of the muscle compression thanks to the built-in stretch fabrics, knitted in the T-shirt and thanks to a perfect fit obtainable with the FORMOTION ™ technology.
Kitbag’s offering free worldwide delivery on orders over £75 as well as free UK delivery on orders over £50. This ends Monday, April 30th 2012. On top of this, they got 50% off the Nike T90 Laser III K.FG boots, an end of season sale of replica kits, boots and some other things and in case you buy any England training or fashion range product you get a mystery gift along with it.
To celebrate their fight for the top EPL spot, UKSoccerShop is offering for a short period of time 10% off Manchester United and Manchester City merchandise. Ends midnight, Wednesday April 25th 2012 UK time. Enjoy!
