About Football - Sporting Goods

The Football League in England was established in 1888, and to this day it remains one of the most-loved and most-watched of all sporting events. It grew in popularity during the 20th century, where countless other football leagues cropped up on an international level. Amateur tournaments and leagues became increasingly prominent, and the rules of association football were set in stone. Played by millions of people around the world every day, Football has become one of the most lucrative international markets, with unprecedented amounts of money being spent on trading professional players, merchandising opportunities and advertisement deals. A simple search online will help you find all the gear you need to play a game of football. This includes football boots, which are essentially trainers with grass studs to get a better grip on the pitch, football shirts, shorts, socks and of course the ball itself. As football is an incredibly popular sport in the United Kingdom, and the rest of Europe, the branded kits from every professional team are available for purchase. Other branded items exist too, with teams stamping their logos on football boots, balls, posters and other items of clothing. This clothing isn't limited to sporting goods, with hoodies, scarves, gloves and hats featuring the logos of fan-favourite teams - the winter woollies are especially popular with those looking to spend a lot of time watching their team from the often-cold supporter stands (at least for matches in England anyway). Generic football gear can be purchased in bulk, to allow amateur teams to wear a matching kit during their games.
