Soccer Jersey

Cartagena is a stop on a cruise we are taking in October.

We are planning to visit the Fort then walk the Centro Historico.

My ten year old collects soccer jerseys and would like one from Colombia.

Does anyone know of a location in the old city that we could find something like this?

Thank you.

Hi

Even though you can find soccer jerseys about anywhere in Colombia, the walled city does not sound the easiest place to find soccer apparel. The walled city is more about fashion, restaurants, cafes, arts...

90% of the Jersey sold in Colombia are not genuine, though. You’ll find from very low quality to really good imitations.

If you want to be 100% sure to get the genuine one, you’d need to go to the Adidas official shop in Caribe Plaza Mall: Centro Comercial Caribe Plaza, Calle 29D, 22-108. It is 15 to 20 minutes away from the walled city.

Agreed, jerseys are mostly imitations.

Another store you may want to consider is Deportivo LED, its a bit more convenient for you as is right in the city centre.

I found it quite funny that even within the Walled City the quality of even the fakes differed.

You can find some 'Adidas' branded ones, with even the Adidas tags and even the label on the neck, other places won't go that far.

Picked one up for COP 40,000 so can't complain.
