Classic football shirts pop up in Trongate Sneakers ER store
Over 3,000 shirts ranging from the 1980s to the present day are on sale at the Classic Football Shirts pop-up in Trongate, Glasgow.
The pop-up opened on March 16 and features some of the company’s most iconic shirts from its extensive collection, tailored to Scottish audiences.
Ciaran Gold, Retail Manager at Classic Football Shirts, said: “We last introduced our tour pop-up concept in Glasgow in February 2020 and have been absolutely blown away by the demand; it eclipsed everything we had done before.
“Given the huge attendance at Scottish football games, we should have seen it coming, so this time we doubled the number of shirts we brought.”
The stock, which contains only authentic jerseys from clubs and teams around the world, will be continuously replenished throughout the pop-up.
Classic Football Shirts are based in Hyde and, in addition to their two permanent stores in London and Manchester, have over a million shirts available to buy online.
“We started online in 2006 and have had loyal Scottish customers from the start, but physically seeing all these shirts in one place really resonates with customers,” Ciaran said.
“I like to think of our stores as part boutique, part museum. No matter who you support, being able to see some of the incredible shirts worn over the past 40 years in the flesh is an incredibly nostalgic experience.
With prices ranging from £15 for recent team shirts to £300 for the rarest items, there’s something for every budget.
“Every shirt is part of football history,” Ciaran said. “Whether it’s one of our most sought-after items or one of our clearance lines, they all have a story behind them.”
As was the case when the outfit arrived in Glasgow in 2020, Celtic and Rangers shirts are proving the most popular, followed by the Scotland national team.
Over 300 other Scottish club shirts adorn the rails, while teams including the Premier League, Serie A and Bundesliga also feature.
The Classic Football Shirts pop-up is located on the first floor of Sneakers ER and runs until Sunday, March 27.
