I’ve joined the club. I’m an addict. I’ve always be fascinated (some would say too fascinated!) with football shirts. And football in general.
I just think football shirts are wonderful. You can instantly connect with a complete strange due to a football shirt. I was in Italy a few years ago and was wearing my Birmingham City shirt (yes, mock me) when I saw a bloke in a Newcastle shirt.
We both stopped for a second, wondering what we should do when we both spotted a teenager in an FC Midtjylland shirt. I had always wanted one so was insanely jealous.
I’ve thought about collecting shirts for a while but never decided what exactly to collect. Club sides are a bit ‘meh’ for me so was always going to be national.
That’s when I read the wonderful ‘Outcasts! The lands that FIFA forgot’ by Steve Menary. I started to delve more into Non-FIFA football and can’t stop reading about the various nations/teams playing.
So then I decided, Non-FIFA was the way to go! Way more troublesome and expensive than a normal national collection but infinitely more interesting and cool.

I also collect football shirts! Congrats to your Serbia Montenegro 2006 LS shirt. Can I ask what size is it?
Thanks for your reply.
Nice to see other collectors! It is a size XL, that was the only size I could find it in. I really like long sleeve shirts and they bring something different to the shirt.
Do you have a contact email where I can send you photos?
Yes of course, you can email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
