Update: Congrats to Sami Hert for winning the jersey and guessing the right score!
Football is a very popular sport in Lebanon but there aren’t that many shops that are purely dedicated to football where you can find everything from jerseys, shoes, scarfs, mugs, balls, figurines, DVDs, flags etc. In fact, the only place I know in Lebanon is Football Shop in Hamra and what I love about this shop is that its owners are hardcore football fans and take part in almost every football-related event in Lebanon. They are always sponsoring and supporting fan clubs and one of the guys who works there (Tarek) is a good friend (even though he’s a Manchester United fanatic :P) and is very active on Twitter.
I passed by the shop today to pick up a couple of things for tonight’s finale and found an awesome Retro Juventus 1970 jersey, as well as an awesome Maradona shirt back from his Napoli years. I even found a Spurs jersey. I ended up buying the Juventus Retro jersey and a tiny German jersey for my future kid 🙂
The shop is organized according to leagues (EPL, Serie A, Liga, Bundesliga, Ligue 1) and there’s a small section for the national teams as well. In the middle there’s a whole section of cool tshirts, figurines, DVDs and other gadgets. There are also huge posters and flags and the best part is that you can print your name instantly there and don’t have to wait for the second day like other shops. Needless to say, everything is authentic.
Moving on to the giveaway, and since the Champions League final is tonight, I thought I’d prepare a small competition for the football fans and Football Shop agreed to give away the jersey of the winning team to one lucky reader. All you have to do is the following:
– Follow me and the Football Shop on Instagram.
– Guess who’s gonna win the finale tonight to enter the draw. There’s no need to mention the score but whomever gets it right will get a extra special gift.
You need to leave a comment on the blog post and I will draw the winner’s name as soon as the game ends. I’m personally cheering for Juventus but it’s gonna be very hard to defeat Barcelona tonight.
NB: You need to put your proper email in the email field while commenting since winner will be contacted by email. You can only comment once, anyone caught commenting more than once will get disqualified.
