Locally made jerseys to adorn FIFA World Cup

Bangladesh is increasingly becoming a source not only for replica football shirts worn by fans but also kits used in practice by players of the International Federation of Association Football (FIFA) World Cup alongside European clubs.

The local knitters also supply jerseys for different sporting clubs globally.

For instance, Chattogram-based knitwear manufacturer Sonnet Textile Industries sent 6 lakh shirts for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 to be held between November 20 and December 18.

“I shipped the last consignment in April this year…through buyers as I do not export directly to the FIFA,” said Gazi Md Shahid Ullah, one of the company’s directors.

He, however, declined to state the price of each shirt.

Shahidullah also said there were bright prospects for sportswear as he shipped $18 million worth of knit products from his factory a year employing 1,800 workers.

Similarly, Fazlee Shamim Ehsan, managing director of Narayanganj-based knitwear manufacturer Fatullah Apparels, said he had exported 2.5 lakh shirts for 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia.
