As a purchaser of AFL football jumpers I have always noted they were made in Australia.
Recently , I purchased several AFL,Â 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.
Another great Aussie icon , the humble footy jumper , bites the dust ?
