How Much do More Expensive Soccer Team Uniforms Cost?
Buying full matching team soccer uniforms is a more expensive option. You will need a home uniform, and an away uniform that would need to be a different color. Nowadays the away team wears their lightest colors which in many cases will be white. The home teams now usually wear their darker colored uniform. Unless your team will always be the home or away team, it’s best to have two complete uniforms, one dark and the other white or light. With soccer team rosters averaging about 25 players, and the price of a stock soccer team uniforms costing between $40 and $60 per player, the cost to outfit an entire soccer team with stock home and away team uniforms would be between $1000 and $1500 per team.
Another way to save money on soccer team uniforms would be to buy reversible soccer jerseys. Reversible soccer jerseys would substitute for separate home and away uniforms. Most team sports unform companies offer reversible soccer jerseys, which can cost between $55 and $70 per player, which would cost between $1375 and $1750 per team.
Every soccer team uniform should include at least one and preferably two goalkeeper jerseys. Goalkeeper jerseys must be a different color from their team’s uniform, the opposing team’s uniform and the referee’s uniform. Oddly enough, both opposing goalkeepers may wear the same colors. There are also special goalkeeper shorts which have padding to soften the shock of diving for the ball and hitting the ground.
Goalkeepers often times don’t have numbers on their jersey which is usually OK. When goalkeepers do have numbers, they are typically either 0, 00, or 1.
A quality goalkeeper jersey without a number will cost between $25 and $80, Goalkeeper shorts will cost about the same as a GK jersey. Teams will usually need two goalkeeper uniforms, one starter and one substitute. It is important to get two goalkeeper uniforms, because they get hurt a lot.
