How to Spot a Fake Soccer Jersey

How to Spot a Fake Soccer Jersey

Hey soccer fans, this is Matt from SoccerPro.com. Today I’m bringing a video about how to spot fake
jerseys and how do not get burned this holiday season but buying stuff
that just isn’t official, licensed, or looks as nice or feels as good. Now, right here I’ve got two Arsenal
jerseys. Now this one right here is the official Nike licensed Arsenal jersey and this here is the fake jersey from a
chinese company which will remain unnamed. Now, the first thing you’re going to notice about
these two shirts is one has a Nike crest, the official one, and the other
does not. And beyond that one of the best ways to
spot a fake is the coloration. Now as you can see the real jersey has a navy
collar, the fake jersey has a white collar, which
is completely wrong, and you also see the fake shirt has this
kind of tag like a t-shirt tag and a chinese tag where as the license Nike shirt has a
Nike logo right here says Dri Fit on it underneath there. And it’s got the
official motto “victoria concordia crescit.” Now one other thing you can notice on
this is the crest on the fake shirt just doesn’t look the same as the one of
the real one. The letters are distorted, its a bit off, and that’s also something that’s really going to tip you off. I don’t know if you guys can see it but the material is also
different. The Dri Fit has just got a real nice feel to it, a nice soft polyester. The
fake one feels almost like lacquer paint. It’s just really not a very nice shirt at all and its definitely something that you’re not going to want to give to someone as a
gift this holiday season. Now one final way to spot the difference between these two, I’m just going to get out the sleeve of this jersey here, is the Premier official patches or name sets. Now this is a fake one and as you can see it’s just kind of stitched on there, its like a lacquery material again, and down here I have the official
Chelsea jersey from this season which we have affixed an official patch to. As you can see it’s pressed on
there with the heat press, not stitched. It’s a felt material when I scratch with my
finger and you’ll notice that the lions there are not the same at all.
And this one is just a really inferior material, so you should be able
to spot them pretty easily based on that. Generally the best rule of thumb with this
stuff for shopping online is if you see a deal that’s too good to be true, it
probably is. These jerseys retail around $85, we usually
some for about 10% off so you get a good deal with us but I got this fake Arsenal shirt for $10 and generally there’s going to be no
licensed soccer jersey you’re going to get for $10, even one from a previous
season. So you know, just bear those things in
mind. Generally stay off of sites like ebay when you’re looking for
officially licensed product and the best rule of thumb is just to buy
from an officially licensed retailer like SoccerPro.com to be sure that you’re getting the real
product from a real company with real people who can help if you have any
problems with your order. Other than that, I hope you guys have a good holiday season and thanks so much for watching. Don’t forget to subscribe.
