There’s no question about it: we’re a nation of football lovers. We play football, we watch football and we spend a lot of money on club merchandise and football-related products. As well as all the usual things you’d expect – like kits, boots and sports equipment –, this includes some pretty strange stuff.
Take a look in the official online Spurs Shop, for instance, and you’ll find a whole section for club lingerie. No doubt it would be interesting to see what your other half thought of bras, knickers and garters brandishing the Tottenham Hotspur crest.
Another wacky item you can buy online is Subbuteo. You may have thought the days of this retro, figure-flicking table game were long gone. But millennials are starting to put down their Xbox controllers to try their luck on the Subbuteo pitch. Expect to see lots of new versions of the game available from online stores like John Lewis, Argos and Amazon.
And once you’ve had enough Subbuteo action, why not hit the slots? Online casinos like bgo Slots bring you plenty of surprising slot games themed around the beautiful game. One of the strangest is Benchwarmer Football Girls. Not only does this slot let you stake as little as 1p per spin, but it features a whole team of rather cheeky, soccer-loving girls wearing outfits that leave little to the imagination. . .
