    Clicking on that has revealed that I'm apparently blocked from following Umbro Ireland on Twitter for some reason!

    Can't think how, when or why that could possibly have happened. Unless they get arsey about very vocal criticism of the FAI's Supreme Leader?

    Hadn't seen that before. An interesting read. I hadn't thought about the fact that junior clubs with a broad spread of age ranges would buy more kit than a lot of LOI clubs.

    I'd put the list of clubs that could guarantee to sell over 150 shirts to their supporters every season as currently being : Cork, Dundalk, Bohs, Rovers and Derry. Waterford might be in there now too. Pats and Sligo could do it in a decent year, and Harps potentially in a very good season (?) - but I doubt any of them could be sure of selling that many year-in year-out. And I wonder if Dundalk would shift those sorts of numbers annually if they slipped down the table and stayed there ?

    Hard to see anyone in the current First Division selling 150 shirts consistently to their supporters on an annual basis (?)

    Harps find it very hard to keep any significant stock of jerseys in the club shop. Last couple of seasons in particular has seen huge sales in the club shop.

    I think there was a figure of €12,000 made in profit by the club shop for last season alone.

    I wouldnt be surprised if Cabo have one of the biggest profits on jerseys in the league, they have something like 60 teams and over 1000 shirt sales there before they start to kit out the LOI team.

    think Bohs work on about 150-200 shirts likely to sell annually. We usually do a bit better than that but depends on style etc. Ironically our, ahem, revised away shirt for 2019 has sold 1000 so far and they are many waiting (we stopped taking orders until January). It would appear, where shirts are involved there is no such thing as bad publicity (or awful taste in style !)

    Sligo Rovers have a promotion where every kid in the Super Reds (the u12 supporters club) gets a free jersey when they sign up. It's usually about 250 to 300 kids that sign up every season and costs only 50 (it used to be only 35). They will get a season ticket, free jersey and a coaching session with the players. It really is massive value and promoting the u12 Super Reds is something the club do really well. In the past the kids have gotten a free jersey like this season and one year the club gave away 300 free season tickets for the u12s. Get them at that age and you will have them for life ... hopefully.
    Manager: Fergal, have you your boots with ya?
    Fergal: Ya, I have them here.
    Manager: Ah good stuff, well give them to this man so, he forgot his!

    Yeah, excellent stuff. Sligo get so much right, with a decent manager for the first time in a while they could be on the up again before long.

    Every primary school kid in Dundalk got a free season ticket in 2016 (had to be with an adult going into the ground)

    Club had to cancel it last years as adults were using the tickets regularly

    Surely that's a straight forward enough one to police though? Just don't leave an adult in with a kids ticket? Seems a shame to have to cancel the scheme for it.

    May not be a new Dundalk top next year after all, as Fyffes are back onboard.

    That many?? I'd say we're selling multiples of that number each year. I'm open to correction, but I'm not sure it would be worth our while to have a club shop in a very busy shopping centre open 6 days a week for 150 shirts (obviously there's other merchandise too).

    I'm not sure which shirt in particular but one that was launched prior to christmas a number of years back outsold EPL jersey launch on a first day that time, think it was one of the Umbro shirts. Ove 2000 were sold in total in the lead up to christmas. The GNR shirt sold in big numbers with the level of demand unexpected. The recent retro shirt sales were an indication of demand with people queuing from stupid o'clock in the morning twice with many left disappointed. 300 people waiting in line for the club shop to open for 50 odd shirts when the second batch were in. There are plans now to launch a range of retro shirts. Demand is strong for merchandising and even if it halved if we were midtable there would still be strong sales in relative terms. It was never unusual to see people in Dundalk gear even when we were in the 1st division but now you are more likely to see a Dundalk jersey when out and about than Liverpool, Man Utd etc. I cant remember the last time I saw someone in a Celtic shirt when up town. Its that snowball effect in that the more people who are wearing Dundalk shirts/jackets/poloshirts more people want them. The best indication was in2012 when you started to see other sportsware shops stocking Dundalk FC gear. It was said in the past to purchase from the club shop if at all possible so that the club get the benefit of sales rather than a private retailer. I'm not sure how it works but you'd think that regardless of where a Dundalk jersey was bought that the club should get a cut.

    I agree, because some people abused the offer the whole thing was stopped. It would have been pretty easy to make the schoolboy season tickets a completely different colour rather than the wee U12 mark on the ticket. Its a bit different from a 14 or 15 year old trying to pass for u12. It showed that they werent being scanned properly too. Another 'scam' was someone entering the ground and then passing the season ticket to someone else at the players entrance or through the gate at Hiney Park to walk round and the same season ticket used twice. Again having the scanners working properly would have solved that issue and then just confiscate the ticket. The other thing with the u12 stickets was that they were to be accompanied with an adult ticket holder so why not check the 2 tickets together. How any parents would allow their u12s go to a game unaccompanied even in a group of friends or how the club would risk allowing entry to unaccompanied u12 is beyond me.
