When choosing sports sets designed for footballers, it is worth remembering a few rules that will make it easier to complete them and provide players with the desired comfort. Obligatory items of a footballer's equipment include sports shirts, shorts, leggings, shin guards and football footwear. Football shoes should have pegs, although it is worth remembering that in youth competitions it is forbidden to play in shoes with metal screws. As for protectors, they should absorb any possible impact of opponents on the shin bones, minimizing the risk of serious injuries. Gaiters must cover them thoroughly. But in this article, we will only cover the Jersey part.

Types of material used to manufacture Football Jersey

There are currently at least several dozen companies offering their products of "the highest quality" on the market of sports equipment manufacturers. We decided to take a look at what football shirts or jerseys consist of, where we play games and train every day. The more that often manufacturers confuse us with their own names for the materials used.

In the past, cotton was mainly used for the production of sports shirts, although the use of sheep's wool was also known. Of course, the problem was that such products soaked in water or sweat very quickly and were very uncomfortable with high physical exertion. Only in 1953 in the final of the England Cup did Bolton Wanderers break this tendency and played in leotards made of plastic.

We don't know exactly what exactly Bolton jerseys were made of. Similarly, it is difficult to track when polyester T-shirts came into widespread use, but in the 90s polyester T-shirts were the norm for most clubs. Polyester is actually a name for a wide range of polymers; polymers are long, chain-like particles formed of many smaller molecules, often referred to as monomers. For simple polymers such as polyethylene, the monomers are the same, but for polyesters, two different sets of molecules are needed: alcohol and carboxylic acid.

Polyethylene terephthalate, often shortened to PET, is the most commonly used polyester. It has a huge range of applications - from plastic bottles to food trays or thin plastic films, up to clothing, of course. In clothes, polyesters have a great advantage over more traditional cotton fibers because they absorb much less water. Cotton can absorb 7% of its weight, while polyester absorbs only about 0.4%. This makes it much less likely to get soaked with sweat while playing football. Instead, sweat can run off the fibers of the jersey and evaporate; for this reason, it is referred to as fabric "breathable". It is also durable and doesn't crease as easily as the cotton counterpart.

While some football jerseys are 100% polyester, it is also common for other fibers to be woven in to change their properties. Spandex is another commonly used polymer - more commonly known as spandex or lycra. Although elastane is not as breathable as polyester, it has other beneficial properties. One of them is that it can be stretched to about 600% of its length before it is finally torn apart, which is very useful in a modern game, where players, especially with constant parts of the game, try to gain an advantage by holding their opponent's shirt. It also easily returns to its original shape.

The last type of polymer commonly used in the production of football shirts is polyurethane. Again, this is a name for a class of polymers, not a specific polymer; In football shirts, they are often the material of which letters, numbers, and logos of sponsors are made.

You can simply design your own football jersey or even the whole uniform by following the below tips. Here are the tips to customize your beautiful football uniforms.

The choice of color

The first thing to do, in choosing the football team uniform, is to decide the colour. This is not a factor among many: what is the mission of your sports association? What are the values on which you base your business? Friendship, solidarity, brotherhood, growth, and learning: they are all valuable qualities that deserve to be emphasized. Usually, the colour of friendship is yellow, that of solidarity is red, that of brotherhood is blue and so on. Start with this and half the work is done.

Company logo and player names

Obviously, the logo of your company cannot be missing on your personalized football uniform. Our advice is to print it on the top left on the jacket, so you can leave the back free to free your imagination. A great classic is to write the name of the players of your team on your shoulders. It's a nice and smart way to make team members happy and make them proud to be an integral part of a big family. They will wear the uniform with pride and will not want to use it only for training, but also to leave the house in informal situations.

Don't forget the numbers

Obviously the numbers on the back of the uniform cannot be missing. This will identify the player's position within the team and give the team greater prestige. There are few things to consider when customizing these clothes: a few simple steps that make the difference and add quality to your sports association.
