I watch mostly the European leagues but once in a while I’ll sit down and watch a game from one of the Latin-American countries. Like many sports fans, I will wear a jersey while watching the game or while out playing on the pitch with friends. So where do I go to find my jerseys?
When I want to shop in the city, I go to Upper 90 Soccer + Sport. If you are a fan of one of the major European football teams, this is the place for you. They have two locations: one in downtown Brooklyn and one on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. They have a great selection of some of the top teams in the world. Do you support Arsenal, Liverpool, or one of the other English Premier League teams? You can get one of their shirts here. Prefer something more continental, like Real Madrid or Borussia Dortmund? They have those here, too.
They have more than just jerseys. You will find shorts and an assortment of firm ground cleats and indoor shoes. What’s a football uniform without the funky colored footwear? I am a fan of yellow, green, purple, or magenta cleats but if you prefer something a wee more conservative, you will find it here, too. Upper 90 also has scarves, sweatshirts, gear bags, and shin guards? Oh, you don’t think you need those? Try playing soccer with a field of competitive players looking to talk smack and show off their skills, do so without shin guards and you’re guaranteeing that your legs will hate you for a week afterwards.
Soccer. Football. Calcio. Whatever you want to call it, it’s fun, challenging, and a great way to burn off those calories you accumulate on Friday evening outings with your co-workers. Why not stop by Upper 90 Soccer + Sport so you can look good while you do it?
