How do I contact Rare Football Shirts?

You can contact us via email or phone. Our contact details are listed on our website’s Contact Us page.

Where do your shirts come from?

We source our vintage football shirts from various places, including private collectors, football clubs, and wholesalers. Some of our shirts come from other countries, especially those with a rich footballing heritage, like Brazil, Argentina, and Italy. Our goal is to provide our customers with the best possible selection of vintage football shirts, while maintaining the highest level of quality and authenticity. We carefully select and inspect each shirt before it’s added to our inventory, and then we carefully clean and repackage them to ensure they’re in the best possible condition for you to enjoy.

I haven't received an update on my order.

We process orders chronologically and aim to dispatch them as quickly as possible. However, due to high demand for our vintage football shirts, it may take longer at times.

Please check your spam folder in case our email notifications were redirected there. If you still haven’t received an update, feel free to contact us for an update on your order status.
