Footy Jumpers are Memories

The NAB Challenge takes all 18 teams on the road, and is a good pre-runner to the ensuing footy season. Fans get to barrack for  their teams, watch some fast paced action and don their beloved football jumpers, jerseys, guernseys. Already the hibernating, much loved jumper, has been stirring from its habitual summer resting place to been seen out and about on the streets, at the gym, in the pub and around the markets and shopping centres. It wants to return to where it feels most comfortable, ie the footy stadium,oval,arena and it is only a matter of time before it takes its rightful place on the backs of loyal fans.

The Red and Black Bombers Guernsey

In 2010 the AFL informed the Bombers they needed a clash strip different to their traditional team colours of red and black . The club opted for red, black and grey. The grey came from the background of their logo and was deemed as a heritage strip by the Club. In 2013 the AFL decided the Bombers could revert to their traditional strip of red and black for all matches.

The Bombers fans know their team are always wearing red and black football jumpers, jerseys, guernseys. These colours are the traditional team colours of the Club, dating from 1896, when they  joined the VFL, which later became the AFL.

Will the red, black and grey footy jumpers, jerseys, guernseys become collectors items? Probably. Time will tell.

A Jersey is the piece of sporting apparel worn by a team player of AFL Football, that traditionally displays the players name and number. Often made from sleek polyester, or fabric designed to soak up sweat and resist wear and tear, the jersey, is a popular garment for on and off field wear. Fans, supporters and players alike wear them. Players of a particular sporting code wear them to identify themselves to fans,teammates and media, and supporters to show their love and support of their club.

Brightly coloured, aerodynamically designed, and expertly sewn, the emblazoned jersey is a vital part of the players kit.  Fans wanting to show support and to emulate the style of their favourite player also wear them. Many get them signed by the team players at match time, and proudly wear them to social functions, or around town, and parade them on match day.
