TEAM Al Arabi SEASON(S) 2010 (?)
HOME/AWAY Home COUNTRY Qatar
MANUFACTURER Burrda

Qatar has really risen in footballing consciousness considering it's not much more than a spit of land in the Persian Gulf. Al-Arabi are, like most Qatari Stars League (now that's a name for a league) from the city of Doha. The shirt is amongst the first in the collection made by the Swiss manufacturer Burrda and is pretty well made. In a similar vein to many Middle Eastern clubs Al-Arabi have imported major international player towards the end of their careers, Stefan Effenberg and Gabriel Batistuta probably the most significant of those. I especially like the rather sever little hunting hawk on the badge.  This very unusual shirt was sent to me by Moscow based collector and nice guy, Oleg Burlakov.
