L.A. Galaxy’s new no.8 jersey costs a small fortune

How much do you like L.A. Galaxy and Steven Gerrard?

Do you like them enough to drop $204.99 (€178.91) on a long-sleeve jersey? That’s how much Gerrard’s no.8 jersey is retailing for over on the official L.A. Galaxy shop.

If you’re trying not to completely waste your money to do a bit of budgeting then there is a cheaper option available in the form of the short-sleeve jersey, on the market for a mere $174.99 (€152.73).

So, how does L.A. Galaxy justify that whopping price tag?

Well, here’s what they had to say on the shop site: “The details of jersey symbolize the energy and nonstop motion of LA, while the eleven individual stripes symbolize the Starting XI players and completes the traditional sash.

“The new kit’s neck tape displays the traditional LA quasar, also featured in the lenticular crest. ‘This Is LA’, a fan-inspired team slogan, appears on the jock tag.”

With that many big words, it MUST be worth all that cash. That’s how it works, right?
