15 Worst Pieces of Football Merchandise

Going to a football match for some is the be all and end all. Whether a supporter of Manchester United or AC Milan, a football fan has a number of different pieces of related clothing. Take for example the humble shirt. For many, the shirt is much more than just a piece of material. It is a symbol not to mention an identity of a supporter.

Across the globe, football is broken down by which shirt an individual has on their back. With all the corruption and recent FBI arrests of several FIFA representatives, their slogan is all about bringing football to the masses. Yet, a shirt performs this task to perfection and has become identifiable across a wide variety of nations. At the end of the day, soccer is a tribal sport where the shirt is one of the most significant parts of kit.

On the other hand, there is also the scarf which is waved furiously by a host of fans around the world. This particular piece is synonymous for many reasons and is not just an item to protect supporters from the bitter cold. The scarf became a symbol in the protests against Malcolm Glazer and his family. The Glazers own Manchester United Football Club and amid furor concerning their PIK loans and amassing debt fans stood up to them. As a result of this, the green and gold campaign was born which paid homage to United's former kit colours. This was previously worn by Newton Heath were actually later to transform into who we know as Manchester United.

However, thanks to the globalization of sport, fans can have the ability to choose from a wealth of novelty items. These have burst onto the market in the last decade which has paid dividends for many. But what are some of worst pieces of football merchandise?
