NMFC to Play AFL Footy in Hobart

NMFC to Play AFL Footy in Hobart

"North versus South" screamed the Mercury newspaper Headline,  in downtown Hobart . A local was heard to remark " I can't believe those people in the North .They are so parochial not wanting Hobart to have footy . '

Such is the passion that AFL Footy ignites , its not even interstate rivalry but intercity rivalry , causing squabbling between the two as to who plays where and when .

NMFC, are to play in Hobart , Hawthorn , are to continue to play in Launceston . Will the locals see a team of 22 professional Footballers , pull on the new Tasmanian Football Team Jumpers, to take their place in the expanded national AFL Competition ?

Retro Richmond TAC Sponsors Jumper

Licensed Football jumpers are unique . They carry the teams sponsors , for the current season , or those of a past season . A jumper can be dated,  from the sponsor, who appears on the jumper . An example , is the Richmond Tigers , football jumper . In the past, the TAC sponsored them , and they had "drink drive , bloody idiot " , printed on , their team football jumper , jersey , guernsey .
New sponsors sign up each season , and pay for the right to have the advertsing of their brand , on the jumper . Costly for the company , but they receive world wide media coverage , and priceless exposure of their brand .

Chain store football jumpers , jerseys , guernseys do not carry these logos . They sell a generic afl jumper that has the team colours , and team logo /mascot , but not the sponsors .

If you want a jumper just like the players wear , you need to buy a licensed product . You may not be aware of the difference but the fans are . If you are giving one as a gift , or purchasing it for the special person in your life , young or old , buy the genuine article . It is worth spending , the few dollars more . The recipient will be eternally grateful.

Guernsey is the new word used to describe the humble football jumper.According to the Heinemann Australian Dictionary it means a " heavy woollen jumpers such as is worn by footballers , sailors etc. ( originally from the island of Guernsey in the English Channel )

Todays streamlined version of a guernsey is a vastly different version of a " heavy woollen jumper. "

Even the number, and sometimes the players surname is printed onto the back of the Jersey , Jumper , Guernsey.
