As a Barcelona fan, buying the team’s shirt is something that you might want to do at some point. The thing is that for the global fan, buying Barca shirt might be a difficult task. If you’re not from Barcelona, and don’t visit the city, buying an official shirt might be pricy. Furthermore, the stores that do sell Barcelona kits in a reasonable price might often sell low- quality products. They are not the official products.
However, if you know what you’re doing, buying Barca fashion in a reasonable price is something that can be done. Here are few of the options for the global Barca fan:
Visiting the city of Barcelona
If you know that you’ll go to a Barca match in the next months, or travel to the city for some other reason, that’s the best option. In Barcelona you can find the Barcelona megastore – FCBotiga, and there you can be sure that you’ll find the best quality. However, in terms of price there are other solutions, because going to Barcelona isn’t cheap.
In Barcelona there are few official stores where you can find Barca fashion products from shirts to baby socks. Moreover, in the official store you can also find accessories such as can openers, books and basically everything! It’s a great place to visit even if you don’t plan to buy anything.
Buying on online stores that ship worldwide
There is an official online store in the official site of Barca. However, they don’t ship everywhere and you don’t find many sales there. However, there are some big online stores that sell the official Barca products, and ship worldwide. One of the stores that we highly recommend is ‘Kitbag.com‘. The UK based online store has many products for every big team in the world, and Barca is one of them.
Furthermore, ‘kitbag‘ might also offer cheaper options as they also sell older versions of the official shirts. They are shipping their products fast, and the quality of them are great. Therefore, they are the best options for an official online store.
Buying on Amazon, eBay, Aliexpress
Global marketplaces such as eBay, Aliexpress and Amazon ARE an option for the global Barca fans. However, it’s a risky option as there is no guaranty on the quality of the products. Moreover, as there are many many sellers there, many of them sell cheap low quality products and it takes long time to ship.
And as they are not official sellers of the official Barca products, those that sell the official products get a ban from the marketplace fast. That’s why most of the sellers are new users and don’t have many reviews.
However, if you know what you’re doing, or have a reference from a friend on a seller that didn’t get a ban, it can be an opportunity. So I wouldn’t rule out those marketplaces as a place to get a shirt, and I even once bought a great shirt from Aliexpress. However, you need to know what you’re doing, or hope for the best.
Buying Barca fashion products can be a tricky thing if you’re not in Barcelona. Also, it can be a thing that cost much money.
However, if you know what you’re doing, and if you do the propper checks first, owning a Barcelona shirt is a great thing! You can use it for meeting friends, watching the matches at home, or for your next visit to the Camp nou!
