The City That Never Sleeps
Football (soccer) in New York is more popular than you might anticipate. Yes it still holds true that football isn't the most treasured sport in the USA, coming 5th on the list of the top ten most popular sports for 2019. That being said though there is quite a hotbed of professional and amateur teams that are located in the city of New York. The three professional clubs are New York Cosmos, New York Red Bulls and New York City FC. With the later being the reason why we are visiting this great city on our tour of the world. We will be focusing our attention on this team solely but if I find myself owning a shirt from either of the other two teams then I am sure we can revisit the city at a later date.
The idea of travelling around the world is one that catches the imagination of most people. Being able to visit and experience the lives and cultures of different countries will always leave a long lasting effect. As it stands right now I am unable to do this physically but as I sit in my office, looking at all these football shirts that I own from around the world, I had the idea of doing a virtual tour of the planet using the locations of the shirts that I own as reference points.
Nike are one of the most influential and popular club football shirt manufacturers in world football. No matter where you sit in the world, it is a guarantee that there will be a team in your national league that has their shirt manufactured by Nike. Nike have been at the forefront of shirt technology for years now and because of this they hold some of the most valuable shirt deals in the world.
Below is a list showing the top 10 Nike shirts that I currently own and are part of my club football shirt collection.
