Since North Korea’s qualification for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa there has been a significant amount of interest in the new North Korea kit. Part of this was because North Korea had played in 5 different shirts in 2010, all made by 4 different sponsors. Lotto, Pirma and Astore provided kits for North Korea, whilst they had to make do with Venezuela’s away shirt (made by Adidas) in a friendly. They finally agreed a 4 year sponsorship deal with Italian based Legea but shirts were not made available until North Korea had already exited the tournament.
North Korea – Away – 06/07
To keep the costs of my project down I decided not to go for the newly released Legea shirt, but instead took Subside Sports up on their £29.99 offfer.
Total cost – £33.74
Total cost of collection – £1734.62
