A pop-up shop selling some of the most obscure, vintage and sought-after football shirts from across the globe is coming to Birmingham city centre next month (October).
Avid collectors and football fans will be able to get their hands on a variety of national, rare and retro shirts at the Mystery Football’s event - with products from more than 30 countries and 50 leagues, and seasons past and present, on offer. Vintage Birmingham City, Aston Villa and West Brom shirts will also be on offer at the pop-up.
The event, running from Thursday, October 19 until Sunday, October 22 at Bullring Grand & Central, is the first of its kind for the West Midlands-based business. And while shirts will be available for sale individually, so will each of the brand’s five iconic Mystery Football Shirt Boxes for adults and kids, in all sizes.
Founder and managing director Matt Cole, who established the brand in late 2020, has promised visitors will not be disappointed as Mystery Football is set to showcase its very best, genuine stock. Stock includes the likes of the following shirts: Mexico 2022 World Cup, Atletico Mineiro 2023, Red Star Paris anniversary, Borussia Dortmund neon limited edition, vintage Birmingham City, Aston Villa and West Brom and more.
What’s been said about the pop-up?
Mr Cole said: “We have more than 10,000 shirts in our warehouse and from this stock we’re hand-picking the very best products to bring to our first-ever pop-up event. We have a range of 2023/24 shirts available too, including Manchester City, Palermo, Borussia Dortmund and more.
“We offer fans an easy and exciting way to build their collections, and we’ve built a passionate community which spans the nation. People of all ages love the surprise element of the Mystery Boxes - generally they mean someone could get a football shirt from any club, in any league, from any country.
“But customers can also choose from a current season box, a national team box, or a premium box which comes with a football scarf. The normal shirts we sell are from the past six-to-seven seasons and the retro shirts span the 90s and 2000s.
“We ensure our shirts are 100 percent genuine and there will be some items for sale that aren’t currently accessible on our website. We’re able to offer the vast collection we do thanks to our growing relationships with football’s biggest brands, like Puma.”
