Who took the Australia out of the AFL Football Jumper

Tuesday, February 15th, 2011

As a purchaser of AFL football jumpers I have always noted they were made in Australia.

Historically Australian Made

Recently , I purchased several AFL,  authentic , licensed football jumpers , printed with official sponsors , from a major sporting goods retail outlet . All were made in China . Two seperate manufacturers produced them . Neither company , were the three traditional manufacturers , who had always made them in Australia .

A disturbing trend . The price has been maintained making them an expensive item and the quality of manufacture displays less attention to detail.

The AFL prides itself on a national competition,  and promotes the Australianess of the brand ,yet it allows football jumpers , previously manufactured in Australia , to be made in China .

Another great Aussie icon , the humble footy jumper , bites the dust ?

Football Jumpers make great gifts

Football Jumpers make great gifts.

Young or old like to receive a present for their birthday , Christmas , or Easter ,

Any significant celebration or occasion such as an anniversary, christening or a reward for an achievement can result in gift giving.

A thoughtful and practical gift idea can be a football jumper , jersey , guernsey.

Lots of people are fans of a football club .

Most would be thrilled with the gift of their team's jumper , jersey , or guernsey .

What better idea than to give a jumper with the recipient 's favourite players number on the back .

Or to give a replica jumper that their team wore in the Grand Final.

Perhaps a gift of a jumper , jersey , guernsey the same as the one worn when your team played theirs and you attended the match together .It would make a great keepsake and momento of a fun time you shared together .

Little fans would be delighted with a jumper , jersey , guernsey to wear to the match . Or to show off in to mates , or just to play kick to kick in.

A babies jumper , jersey , guernsey would be a novel gift idea for a newborn .

It may be a nice idea to send one to a homesick expatriate Aussie who can watch the Game via cable TV in his
jumper , jersey , guernsey sent
from Oz.

The humble football jumper , jersey , guernsey is a thoughtful , inexpensive gift idea sure to impress the recipient.
