Can we talk jerseys?

Is there anywhere you can get clearance Umbro kits? I'm assuming no but I figured I'd ask because like many here I'm not going to pay that much for such a bland Nike Canada shirt. 

They never sold them online, the shop just disappeared but I imagine the left over stock was liquidated at RMP Athletic. That was where everything from Umbro was shipped from.

Watching the pre-game show and the long Christine SInclair  love fest (well deserved) but the child who idolizers her just hammers home how little the CSA does to market their players or support their fans.  The jersey the kid is wearing is unavailable, the posters and pictures on her wall are all home made or small hand outs from games.  There's nothing I can buy today for my daughter to support her love of Canadian soccer.

We get it.

Does Soccer Canada get it?  Or do you think it's going to change through silent protest?

Well probably not considering you keep posting here... Maybe try voicing your concerns through a medium they actually monitor?

Believe me, I have. repeatedly, and I have never received a response. I sent exactly what I wrote above to them through their website contact and my money says they won't respond, again.  If you have any other suggestions on how this can be fixed I would love to hear them.

I don't because there's nothing else you can do. You can't force them to print posters for you, sell youth jerseys or market their players in way you approve of. And posting the same thing here multiple times won't do anything either.

I'm sure you know how to block me if it's that annoying.  You actually have to choose to read and respond to my posts.  That's on you.  On the other hand, maybe my complaining will get a few more people to complain and something might change.  I remember quite well being told to stop complaining about the CSA's funding of the women's program in the '90s, being told that nobody cared.  Obviously some people did care and things did change.  Maybe my voice was really small but it was still there, and still heard.

Personally, I find the "stop complaining" comment annoying. That is what (amongst other things) a message board is for.

The truth is, the CSA is an appallingly ineffective organization and has been for as long as I can remember. When your fans print "Sack the CSA" T-shirts and one of your players wears one, a little bit of self awareness would cause you to take a long hard look at yourself.

I was happy to see a HFX Wanderers flag in her bedroom. We have Voyageurs flag but no Soccer Canada flag.

 

Everyone on this thread is also asking the same thing - great ad but where can we buy a customized jersey.

Yeah, it's not like Canadian fans won't buy stuff if it's priced remotely fairly, and I am very happy to see the CSA get roasted for the lack of buying options.  I note the CSA twitter feed has not responded to the questions.

When your head is located some place where there is no light, you are unlikely to see any incoming questions.
