Branded vs non branded football team kits
There is no doubt that, with the global popularity of football, football kits are big business. The sale of football kits is a very valuable means of income for many clubs, with teams whose survival is very much influenced by how many official kits they sell.
Officially branded merchandise can be expensive, and it is not therefore surprising that some people turn to non branded sports shirts to save money. This can, however, be a false economy - even more so if you intend to use your kit to play football in, rather than just wear it to the game as a supporter. The style and fit of a football kit is important. Studies have shown that when footballers feel good in their kit, they play better. With unbranded equipment, style is not the prime motivator when selling the kit. Ill-fitting kit can sometimes be a distraction throughout a game, so having the correct fitting equipment is important. Companies who are prepared to put their name officially on a shirt are more likely to have taken account of the style of the shirt. Fabrics also play a vital part in the construction and design of a football kit. If you are playing in hot conditions and the material is unable to wick the sweat away from your body, it can lead to dehydration and discomfort, and if the temperature drops, and you have cold sweat on your body, it can lead to a chill. Better fabrics will not only help to control sweating, but will also make the kit more durable, which is important, when you consider how much the kit will need to be washed throughout the season. Care also needs to be taken to examine the stitching, and the way the shirt has been put together. Shirts which have been poorly sewn, or which create rough patches of fabric, can rub and chafe when you are running which can be uncomfortable. In conclusion, choosing a branded kit over a non branded kit may save you many problems in the long run.
