Soccer is the World's Sport, and as such there are thousands of soccer teams in World Soccer. Since we are World Soccer Shop it is our always our mission in life to scour the globe or the world to bring fans new and rare teams, of every level. Big nations, and small islands, we will get it and offer it to their fans. And, as you may or may not have noticed, we treat all our products with the same class and dignity the team and its fans deserve.
Having said that, it brings us great pride to introduce for the first time on WorldSoccerShop - Club Olimpia.
The Official Kappa Olimpia 09/10 Home Soccer Jersey.
You may not have heard of Club Olimpia of Asunción Paraguay, yet they are by no means a small club. They are renowned in South America, mainly in Paraguay, where el Decano has won a whopping 38 First Division titles. Yet, what's more impressive is they have conquered one of the biggest tournaments in World Soccer - the Copa Libertadores - three times, the last one being in 2002 the year the celebrated their 100th anniversary or birthday.

Blues Hoop Dreams
It's been no secret that Chelsea has a big-time NBA superstar as a fan - Kevin Garnett of the Boston Celtics (who was recently spotted in Pasadena). I doubt that was the reasoning behind having hoops, or horizontal stripes on their white third kit, but thought it an interesting theory nevertheless.
Whatever the thinking behind it, we're sure all Blues fans, and Hoops fans alike, will dig this new jersey design as much as we do!

The Red Devils Honor Old Trafford
You might have wondered why Manchester United Football Club applied a chevron to their home jersey. Well, we have the answer, courtesy of the launch of their new Official Nike Manchester United 09/10 Away Soccer Jersey.
The shirt is all black, save for the classic chevron design - which honors the kit that Manchester United wore during their first season at Old Trafford - 100 years ago! The chevron, which is the V design, traditionally signifies merit, rank and/or length of service. It is a fitting design for the Premier League champs, as few teams in World Soccer can match their success and tradition, most of which the Red Devils have enjoyed at their home: Old Trafford.

Seldom does a relationship make as much sense as this one.
Take a look at the brand new ¡PUMA Pumas UNAM 09/10 Jersey de Fútbol Local!
After seven years with Lotto, the team of the Universidad Autónoma de México, and Clausura 2009 winners, now has the shirt sponsor it/they was born to have: PUMA! Feline symmetry. Now, not only does the famous shirt display the big puma head on the front, but also the rubberized world-famous sprinting cat logos, on the shoulders and right chest. The new design includes the upper chest V strip PUMA has fashioned in other top team jerseys, though in this case it matches nicely with the sublimated design and color on the hieroglyphic cat head.
Another interesting tidbit about the Mexican champions: They are one of several top tier professional Mexican soccer clubs to belong to a university, in this case the National Autonomous University of Mexico, the largest university in the country. No other league in the world has anything like this, that we're aware of. It would be akin to having USC play in the NFL or DUKE in the NBA.

One of the biggest clubs in World Soccer - AC Milan played Club América last night in a World Football Challenge match in Atlanta, Georgia.
Through our partnership with one of the club, and the fact it's only a few ours away from our Birmingham, Alabama offices, the blog team ventured out to the Georgia Dome to check things out, and give our friends at AC Milan a hand in getting the word out. Despite the fierce mosquitoes, we spent a few hours at the tent (pictured) getting to know some pretty cool football and fútbol fans (one in particular we just had to photograph) as both fans of Milan and América were there well before the match.
The match was fantastic, and we had some pretty good seats (we could even hear the ball hitting the players, or vice-versa; though the vuvuzuelas (fancy word for extremely loud and obnoxious horns) right behind me were ear-splitting. It was great to see so many soccer fans fill the huge dome, nearly to capacity, as the attendance was over 50,000.
In our humble estimation, the crowd was fairly evenly split between Rossoneri & Aguilas fans, though, the Club America fans were more vociferous, as just about every time their team had the ball, they'd chant 'Aguilas, Aguilas', or 'Ole, Ole, Ole!' They were quite pleased when the match ended and their side was ahead, though everyone loudly cheered for the Man of the Match: Milan's famous #80: Ronaldinho.

We're glad to finally bring you the 09/10 Productos de Fútbol for one of the biggest teams in North America, the richest club in Mexico: Club América!
Los Águilas are perhaps the only team to always have their away jersey in a similar style as the home shirt, only in the reverse colors.
The 'Playeras' (idiom of 'jersey' or shirt in Mexico) design for the Apertura '09 and Clausura '10 is something new for the team from the capitol, featuring a V in the front: blue on the home/yellow on the away. Plus, like most Nike teams, the shirts feature advanced Dri-FIT® fabric, which will keep you drier, cooler and lighter by drawing sweat from the body to the fabric’s surface, while its three-dimensional construction gives more air space around the skin to reduce clinging, while at the Azteca or anywhere you're cheering on your Eagles!

It has been a long time, but with all the big splashes they've been making in the Premier League, we're quite glad to have the:
Official Umbro Manchester City FC 09/10 Home Soccer Jersey!
Inspired by the club’s rich heritage, the new shirt benefits from Umbro’s football tailoring process: delivering performance and style on and off the pitch. The home jersey combines design elements from the past – like the team’s traditional sky blue and white trim - with new technology, refined detailing and a tailored aesthetic. Each seam on the new crew-neck shirt has been carefully considered and selected for a specific function and the crest has been extensively re-mastered to bring a new level of detail to the club’s identity. The shirt uses Umbro's innovative Climate Control technology, a state-of-the-art fabric, which enhances the movement of moisture away from the body, allowing for increased performance.

The team paradoxically known as La Vecchia Signora, Juventus Football Club has launched their brand Juventus.
The home jersey features narrower black and white stripes and hearkens back to the shirts worn by the historic squads of the Quinquennio - when Juve conquered 5 consecutive scudetti from 1930-1935.
The real novelty for the season is away jersey. Built around the famous sentence pronounced by Giovanni Agnelli before the Champions League final against Ajax in 1996 (“If they are a team of Flemish painters we will be tough Piemontese”) these are the innovations: a shirt the color of steel with a black and white sash cutting down the front.
This Old Lady looks pretty good!

Atlético de Madrid 09/10 Home Jersey de Fútbol
The other Madrid club, not Galacticos but Colchoneros, the one minus all the big spending, has a new home jersey out, and we're glad to have it here.
The new shirt looks very similar to the ones before it, as it shows the traditional ‘rojiblanco’ red and white stripes, yet there are some differences that true fans surely would've already noticed.
1. Crest: It has been modified in several ways: the number of stripes has been increased, and are therefore thinner, with the central part of the front of the jersey being red. This change is to get closer to the beginnings of the Atleti vest. 2. Collar: After several years, the return of the red polo-style, fold-over collar. The Spanish flag will remain on the back of the collar.
3. Inscription: The inscription on the inside of the collar has changed from ‘Bendita afición’ (‘Blessed fans’) to ‘Espíritu de superación’ (‘Overcoming spirit’).
4. Label: Finally, a small label appears the side with ‘Atlético de Madrid’ on one side and ‘1903’, the year in which the Club was founded, on the other.
