It was announced last week that the new England shirt for the 2014 World Cup would cost fans £90 to buy. Understandably, most people weren’t very happy about this. When we saw this on the news, we asked ourselves a number of questions: firstly, is this a massive difference compared to the prices from other years? And why is it so expensive, given the current financial climate? Finally, is £90 even particularly expensive compared to the prices for other countries’ shirts? The infographic conveys the evolution of the England shirt price, surprisingly it went 68% up since Nike took over Umbro! But not all is doomed for Nike, as Puma charges whooping £109 for the Italian replica! Shirt my pants!
