The plus side is that we might see a few less people, kiddies, wearing them. The downside is they might still wear them but they will be fakes.

Then you have to factor in the £200 return first class rail fare from London to Manchester to pick it up from the club shop.

In Germany, the cheapest shirts for bundlesliga clubs are around €85, with Bayern and Dortmund being over €100...

Think those were at away games Chief with slight kit changes....black shorts haven’t been in Man Yoo’s home kits...

You can have that, only being pedantic that Man United have NEVER worn black shorts.

Technically, while they were still Newton Heath they had dark shorts.

The mark up on these will be astronomical. But then again Sanchez 500K a week needs to be paid somehow.

Fit, basically.

The authentic fit is sometimes described as "athletic fit" and if you're of average BMI you're going to look like an overstuffed sausage casing in one. "Replica" usually means it's a bit roomier.

Makes sky subscription look a bargain.  I think that should be increased immediately.

I hope the market gets flooded with knock offs; serve all greedy bar steward football clubs right.

Apologies for posting a link I dropped in another thread a few weeks back, but the self manufactured kit model we have adopted increasingly looks like a great decision.

Read it and consider.

I agree, United fans should organize a boycott and buy retro ones instead. England shirts have never been more expensive and it was noticeable during the World Cup how many fans wore the 1982 retro one and how few wore the 2018 version.

Exactly. If you read the Sun Story it's £64.95 for the equivalent of a normal City top which is £45.00. Look I'll agree it's all overpriced, but lets not over-sensationalise this, especially with some of the prices quoted for other teams. (In certain cases fan-friendly ticket prices make their gouging on shirt prices a bit more palatable.)

Whilst checking the City prices, I noticed that the leisurewear is sensibly priced - e.g. £15.00 for a polo shirt, down £5 or £10 using the reward scheme credit. A relatively cheap way of wearing club colours next (this?) season without advertising Dunder. Win, win.

True, I didn't see many people in the actual England kit at all. I picked up a retro one 4 years ago and went for the training top (like many others) this year. Both around half the price of the actual kit at the time.

Many NFL, NBA & NHL shirts are £100 or over so it wouldn’t surprise me either. I think the price should be reduced only in the club shops to give something back to the real fans,

My thoughts exactly. Any time I've been to the NFL games in London the tops have always been around £80+, and the queue to buy them has always been around half an hour, so they'll definitely sell.

The difference for many American sports is that they don't update the jersey every season, whereas football teams do, so we're actually getting a worse deal than they do in American sports.

Cheaper version is the equivalent of what we sell, the authentic version is a player version which is more costly to produce and a world of difference in quality. Nike have three tiers with theirs, replica, high design replica player version which the players wear. 

Essentially the only difference to us is that we don't use high end tech in our kits like the duel knitting processes etc so our replicas aren't far off what the players wear and therfore we just get a flat price rather than multiple options.

Replicas often have a looser cut to fit fans better and use different materials to keep costs lower. 

Authentic versions use more advanced materials that are lighter and often have heat pressed team badges and logos rather than embroidered to also keep weight to a minimum. You also find these shirts are tighter to the skin to make them harder to pull in-game. 

Nike also occasionally add inspirational words woven underneath the sleeves on authentic Nike AeroSwift shirts but you'll not find these on replicas.

Been that way on the continent for a while. Visited Ajax last year and it was 89euros for a shirt. Even with the conversion to GBP that's over £80! Same in Portugal for any of their big 3 clubs.

They wore blacks shorts when they played in Div 2 - 74/5 when City did the double over them.

Amazed Clubs the size of United don’t have their own clothing production company to produce all their clothing products including kits

 

 

Then again when Adidas pay you £750  :blink::blink: million over 10years to do it why bother

United couldn’t care less about the price fans pay

And will still be earning out of every shirt sold
