Football Shirt World

If I was to collect the shirts in alphabetical order then this would have been my first shirt, but I didn’t, so it’s my 160th.
A couple of years ago Afghanistan were rock bottom of the FIFA world rankings, but a recent 5-0 aggregate win over Bhutan and an AFC Cup win against Sri Lanka has pulled them up the the dizzy heights of 174th.

Afghanistan – Away – 2009

Hummel are possibly my favourite kit manufacturer. Not only do they make fantastic shirts (see Sierra Leone, Zanzibar, Tibet and Uganda), but they also go beyond sponsorship and help develop the game in the countries they sponsor.

A collector from Australia recently got in contact with me and gave me contact details for someone who works at Hummel. The guy a Hummel was brilliant, he gave me a whole load of information about the Afghanistan national team and how they were working with them. When the shirt arrived I also had a Hummel pen drive with promotional videos of the Afghanistan men and womens teams. The new shirt should be out in the summer and you can bet that I’ll be first in line to get it.

In the mean time, if they’ve still got any left, check out the Hummel online store.
