A Jersey is theÂ piece of sporting apparel worn by a team player ofÂ 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 aÂ 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, theÂ emblazoned jersey is a vital part of the players kit. Â 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 themÂ on match day.
