Top 10: Best-selling football shirts

Sport360 staff 20/10/2016

Commercialism in sport, particularly football, has vastly evolved over the years with clubs increasingly putting pen to paper regarding club sponsorships and massive kit contracts.

Sport360 looks at ten clubs who have greatly profited from selling numerous units of shirts worldwide, as revealed by sportingintelligence.

BORUSSIA DORTMUND

The instantly-recognisable yellow and black colours of Dortmund sell for 393,000.

JUVENTUS

Sad to see Serie A make an appearance so low down the list with Juve selling 452,000 shirts.

PSG

One of the three Ligue 1 teams in the top 20, PSG have made big strides to sell an average 526,000 shirts.

ARSENAL

Kit maker Puma took over the responsibility in 2013 and that's helped Arsenal shift 835,000 shirts.

LIVERPOOL

Despite not winning a league title in 26 years, the Reds' PR machine is strong with 852,000 shirts sold.

CHELSEA

The 2015 Premier League champions complete the top five with 899,000 shirts sold on average.

BAYERN MUNICH

The German juggernauts won the Bundesliga four times in the period of the study, selling 1.2m shirts.

BARCELONA

The La Liga champions are in a distant third with 1.278m shirts sold on average per year.

REAL MADRID

The white of Real is popular in the UAE and that's replicated across the globe with 1.65m sold.

MANCHESTER UNITED

The Red Devils regained their status as the number one shirt seller by shifting 1.75m jerseys per year from 2011-16.

The striker was tragically killed.

Bourne with it: Cahill's stunning goal in the Melbourne Derby

Purely for his tenacity, Tim Cahill was never quite pegged as a fox-in-the-box despite his poacher’s instinct and the fact that he scored his goals almost exclusively inside the 18-yard box.

Particularly during his spell at Everton, he was renowned for ghosting into the box and getting on the end of crosses. However, in his A-League debut, Cahill has scored a goal quite out of character.

When the ball fell to him in midfield, all of 40 yards from goal, Cahill instinctively struck it on the half-volley and saw his effort beat the keeper and dip under the bar.

Watch the phenomenal strike below which came in the Melbourne Derby no less for his new club Melbourne City… and of course, it was followed by his trademark corner flag celebration.
