If you love retro shirts then should be your first stop!

They invited me to have a look around their warehouse and I couldn’t believe the amount of stock they have from all around the world.

There was plenty of retro Manchester City shirts as well as shirts from really obscure clubs (they even had some Stockport County shirts!)

Who are

There was an advert in the 90’s which said “it does exactly what it says on the tin” and with Classicfootballshirts you pretty much get the same! Founded by two students at Uni in Manchester the company has grown to become one of the world’s leading suppliers of retro football shirts. Starting by simply selling their own collection on eBay, the students found there was a huge demand for retro football shirts and began sourcing shirts from around the globe. In 10 years Classic Football Co. has grown to a company with a £multi-million turnover employing 20 members of staff.

Are legit?

Being so close to the Etihad, the guys from Classic Football Shirts invited me along to see their operation. Classic Football Shirts Manchester Warehouse

They currently don’t have a factory shop so please don’t turn up on a matchday looking for your collections missing shirt!

Now I’ve walked past the warehouse hundreds of times and it’s only when you go inside that you realise how big a company this is. The warehouse is packed with stock, with the staff unpacking boxes from football clubs around the globe. Classic Football Co. purchased the warehouse in 2004 with the help of Barclays Bank (as reported at the time in the Manchester Evening News). So you can see this has grown a long way from selling shirts on eBay!

Where do they get their stock from?

The Classic Football Co. get their stock from three main sources

  • The general football fan

Someone like me or you who has a draw, wardrobe, box in the loft full of our shirts we’ve collected over the years. Now ClassicFootballShirts will buy your collection or odd shirt from you. Just don’t expect the same price as on the site as they have to make money as well!

  • Football clubs

At the start of each season, the kitman at a football club will order a certain number of kit and if they don’t use them all then what happens to it? Well Classicfootballshirts buys all the stock they have left and puts it on their site. It’s not just football shirts, when I went around the warehouse there were football boots, shorts, even AC Milan underpants! (1)

  • Sports Manufacturers and retailers

With football clubs changing kits so frequently grrrrrr, retailers and manufacturers can get left with stock left over. The Classic Football Co. takes this stock and sells it on. Many of the items are brand new still in their original packaging!

ClassicFootballShirts Review

I’ve not used the site myself (my girlfriend would kill me if I filled the house with more memorabilia!), however I’ve mentioned ClassicFootballShirts on my twitter @theGingerWig and have had a number of people highlight what good service they’ve received.

If you are unhappy with the shirts you receive they also have an exchange or refund policy, although from what I’ve seen on twitter all they get is compliments on their service.

Retro Shirt Customization   

Deep in the heart of the ClassicFootballShirt HQ is a room with shelves full of retro numbers and letters for retro shirt printing. Yes they’ve literally bought the old stocks of transfers just to personalise retro football shirts! Unfortunately you can’t send your own shirts in but if they’ve got the shirt you want you can get your favourite old player’s name and number on the shirt.

Classic Football Shirts Youtube Channel

The company has it’s own youtube channel that highlights some of the great shirts they get from around the world. Hopefully they’ll do a specific Manchester City one soon! discount code
