Best buys in soccer shirts


The biggest sports event in South African history is upon us and more and more people are seen in green-and-yellow supporter’s gear on Fridays. Perhaps you have also been caught up in the spirit of the Fifa World Cup and you think you’ll look cool in green and yellow in front of the box watching Bafana run out for the opening match. How do you choose from the wealth of soccer shirts available?

It’s simple: there are four official Bafana replica shirts and a wide range of others in various designs and it’s up to you to decide which one best suits your taste - and your wallet.

The flagship of the collection is the exact replica of the Bafana soccer player’s shirt for a hefty R1 499.

It’s a collector’s item and only 2 010 were made in one size - in other words you’re meant to frame it and display it on the wall. It’s packed in a box with a replica of the captain’s green armband and made of fabric containing ClimaCool, just like the garment designed to keep the players cool.

But there’s no need to blow your budget to be proudly South African during the soccer spectacle. We looked at various options and prices; now it’s up to you to choose.
