I bet a lot of stores in Canada won't even have the Canadian NT jersey. Canadians are very much into ice hockey while soccer is still a minority sport.
A long time ago, it was easier to find Brazil NT or England NT jersey than Canada NT Jersey.
No one even knew they were playing. Infact, they said that Curling Sport got more attention than Soccer in Canada....
Now-a-days, it improved, since we got Major Leauge Soccer. But Toronto is a fad town. What comes in one week, goes out the other. Its hard to make a name here. You gotta fight nails and screws to maje an image....
The team that Toronto has sells out games. I paid close to 70 bucks for 2 seats. Sitting out in the cold rain, eating 10 dollar pizzas to watch amatures play....all on the basis that the leauge is suppose to get better and Sir Beckham plays on it......
I would say: buy your merch directly from the IFA, that way you are also sure that your money ends up in the pocket of the Israeli FA
I am not sure of shipping costs but those few bucks extra won't hurt I'd say.
Since when did IFA sold jerseys? :?
I would like to see one sight for all Israel soccer jerseys. I know some are around like pongo, but your not sure if its real or not and ur team might not be featured.
Hapoel K. Shmona had a nice design a few years ago with Izuzu Sumona
