35 awesome soccer gifts for soccer fans

Soccer gifts for large budgets

#1 Tickets to a soccer match

One of the best gifts for soccer fans is of course a ticket to a soccer match! And by that, I don’t mean a match at your local soccer club, but a professional match in a stadium.

If you know which club the recipient supports, try to find tickets for one of their matches. Otherwise, a ticket for a match of the recipient’s national team is also a great idea. At Live Football Tickets you can find tickets for all sorts of soccer matches.


#2 Clubs of Europe poster

Soccer is a big thing in Europe, and I guess that’s why you will find many great soccer clubs in Europe. So if you are looking for soccer gifts for someone who is a big fan of European soccer, this poster with over 1000 famous soccer clubs in Europe is the gift you need.


#3 Practical soccer backpack

A soccer ball is quite large and impractical to carry around. But this backpack by Athletica is specifically designed to fit a soccer ball. And at the bottom, there is an extra compartment to carry shoes. And that combination is what makes this one of the great gifts for soccer players.


#4 Club jersey

If you know which club the recipient supports, then a jersey of that team is one of the best gifts for soccer fans.

For example, this jersey by F.C. Barcelona.

However, if you are not sure which club the recipient supports, gifting a club jersey can be a bit tricky. Some soccer fans can get quite fanatical when it comes to supporting their team and disliking their rivals. So if you are not sure about it, I would suggest buying the next gift on this list.


#5 National team jerseys

Compared to the previous gift, soccer jerseys of national teams are safer soccer fan gifts. Because, generally speaking, you know which country someone supports. Whereas with clubs, it can be a bit of a gamble.

So if you are looking for gifts for American men who love soccer, this jersey of the USA national team is the gift you need. For the women’s jersey or other nationalities, check out Nike or have a look at Amazon.


#6 Soccer shirt beer cap collector

Then this is the gift you need.

A personalized soccer shirt with holes for beer caps. All the recipient has to do is crack open a beer and create a beautiful piece of soccer-themed wall art.
