uhlsport - Kits for All levels of the game!


German company uhlsport are one of the most famous brands in world football, supplying countless professional clubs and national associations with their kit over the years.  The roll call of clubs and countries to wear the uhlsport logo on their football kit includes Internazionale, FC Kaiserslautern, 1860 Munich, Blackburn Rovers, Auxerre, Jamaica, Kuwait, Uruguay and Tunisia.

On this day it must have been a cold stadium that they were playing in, judging by the sweatshirt the Jamaican player is wearing under the jersey![/caption] [caption id="attachment_2399" align="alignleft" width="300"] German cracks Kaiserslautern walking out to start a Bundesliga game in 1991.

But it isn't just the pro players that uhlsport looks after, they also do a high quality range of football team kit that meets the needs of grassroots football clubs across the UK and Europe without breaking the bank!  The 2017 range of uhlsport team kit features technical designs such as Goal and classic looking kits that are ideal for those on a budget like the Stream 3.0 and Essential.

All of the uhlsport team kits available at Direct Soccer today include 25% discount on the RRP and are great value for money.  In the years since uhlsport began supplying team kit, the technology in the kits has thankfully come a long way and no longer looks like a shiny polyester jersey as seen on Inter Milan's Jürgen Klinsmann in 1991 or outrageous designs like FC Kaiserslautern's from the same period or Jamaica's national team kit of the early 2000's.  We don't think there will be huge demand from the public for a lederhosen series of kits like 1860 Munich wore for the Oktoberfest every October when they were supplied by uhlsport!  What we do know is the current range of uhlsport team kit is fantastic, offers great choice and value for money and is a point of difference for those looking for an alternative brand of football kit.

The top jersey from uhlsport's 2017 selection of team kit is the Goal.  This shirt, available in short sleeves only, is the style worn by African cracks Tunisia.  Made with uhlsport's smartbreathe® MESH fabric which provides a breathable and pleasant dry feeling due to its mesh structure, this top quality football jersey has a slight v-neck with contrast colour collar and printed GOAL design on the upper chest while the contrast mesh inserts on the side aid breathability.  Available in 7 colours, the Goal S/S Football Jersey is available to order now at Direct Soccer and teams up with a matching short for a great full kit look.  Our favourite is the Grey Mélange/Black colour which is fashionable as well as a good option for a team's away kit.

We are running another competition on our social media channels where you can be one of two lucky winners to win a pair of uhlsport Eliminator Absolutgrip Rollfinger goalkeeper gloves (size 10) worth £69.99 each.  To enter, all you need to do is predict on our Facebook, Twitter or Instagram page how many saves Tottenham's number 1 Hugo Lloris will have made in the Premier League by the end of the 2016/17 season.  At the time of going to press Lloris had made 66 saves in league play and with 4 games to go he should add a few more to this tally. Entries have to be made before the Spurs versus Man Utd game kicks off on Sunday 14th May 2017.  Good luck and may the best guessers win!
