TEAM Arsenal De Sarandi SEASON(S) 2005

There must be an element of irony that, in a collection of football shirts as large as this one, Arsenal De Sarandi get in before their better known London namesakes. Arsenal De Sarandi play in Buenos Aries and were named after Arsenal of London. There are two interesting facts about this shirt. The first is that it is made by Mitre. Mitre, better known for balls and boots, had a stab at doing shirts in the mid 1990s but then disappeared from the scene until this little beauty appeared. The second is that the club's nickname is "El Arse". Crude, I know, but funny nonetheless. This shirt was supplied, surprisingly enough, by my Russian contact, Anton.
