About Middlesbrough - Sports Memorabilia
Middlesbrough Football Club were founded in 1876 and are based at the Riverside Stadium in the town. They were one of the founding clubs when the Premier League was formed in 1992, and have spent most of their history playing in one of the top two divisions of English football. Their first major honour came in 2004 with a victory in the final of the League Cup.
As with most football clubs, a wide range of different team tops are available, reflecting both home and away colours. Variations on these have been produced on a regular basis. Added to this are examples of both goalkeeper and training tops. Away from actual team wear, support is often reflected by the wearing of tee or polo shirts bearing the club crest, the sponsor's logo, celebrations of key moments in the club's history (such as the 2006 UEFA Cup Final), or a humorous message.
There is also a range of signed merchandise to choose from. This may be a shirt worn by an individual, popular, player - such as Juninho or Boksic - or one signed by all, or most, of the playing squad from a particular season. Signed, and often mounted, prints are also popular.
Away from clothing, many other items are available. These include a wide range of pin badges, mugs, mobile phone cases, personalised mock-ups of newspaper or magazine pages, and much more. Memorabilia relating to specific matches can also be found. This includes match tickets and programmes, ranging from recent times back to matches played from the 1940s onwards. So, whether a lifelong fan of the club yourself, or selecting a gift for one, there is much here from which to choose.
