Torino FC Sells Simplified 'Replica' 19-20 Home Kit For Just 35 Euro

Italian Serie A side Torino FC has caught our attention as they are doing something that is not common, at least for teams in Europe.

Torino 19-20 Home & Away Kits Revealed

Torino FC 2019-2020 Home Kit 'Replica Version'




Officially dubbed 'Maglia Replica Torino FC', the cheap version of the Torino 19-20 home kit is based on standard Joma teamwear. It is claret with white applications and a simple collar.



If we directly compare all parts both jerseys, there are only a few important differences. First, the colors are not identical. Second, the collars are different. Third, the 'real' jersey comes with a few more details and a different authentic logo. But there are also many same things such as the Torino crest, the sponsor logos and the slogan within the collar.



Price-wise, the standard Torino FC jersey retails at 75 Euro, while the 'replica' is available for just 35 Euro.



In case you are wondering. There is not such as thing like a Joma authentic (player issue) jersey, so you get the kit worn by the players for 75 Euro.

Torino FC is only selling a replica version of their home kit, the away and third jerseys are only available as standard (75 Euro) version.



We think that there is one main reason for Torino to sell such a replica kit for that fair price. They know that there is a fake market in Italy, and they want fans to buy their products instead of counterfeits.

In other countries such as Turkey and countries in South / Middle America with big fake markets many teams are selling 'replica' editions, even though we have not seen 'replica' kits as similar to the actual jersey.

Should other clubs do this as well? Do you know other teams who are doing this already? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
