In 2018/2019, the number of football jerseys sold worldwide by team. Manchester United sold the most football or soccer shirts in the world in 2018/2019, with 3,250,000 million copies sold. They are followed by Liverpool with 2,240,000 million copies sold and then Arsenal with 1,200,000 million copies sold.
The top three teams sold more than any other team in the world. United also ranks first in terms of average price of a shirt ($567), while Liverpool averages $400.
Jersey sales are given as a percentage of ticket sales for each team. This means that if Man U has 100,000 fans and sells one jersey for $100, then they would say they sell 50% of their jerseys. Although this may seem like a high ratio, it's actually quite low compared to other sports. For example, a NBA team can spend up to $3 million on advertising during one game and still not sell a single jersey (http://www.espn.com/blog/bucks/post/_/id/5479/the-bucks-sell-more-jerseys-than-any-other-basketball-team).
Another way to look at it is that people are willing to pay $100 for a shirt when they know it will belong to someone they love.
United Manchester Manchester United sold the most football or soccer shirts in the world in 2018/2019, with 3,250,000 million copies sold. Football kit sponsorship is a valuable source of revenue for football teams, with English Premier League clubs getting millions in kit sponsorship deals.
United won the league title in 2018/2019 with José Mourinho at the helm. The team represents London on and off the field, so it is not surprising that they sell more jerseys than any other club.
However, this does not mean that everyone who wears a Manchester United shirt is from England. The team has many fans around the world, especially in Europe. They also have a large number of supporters in Mexico and South America, where they play in the United Soccer League (USL).
The next highest-selling club is Liverpool, with 2,225,000 shirts sold. The record was set in 2013/2014 when Liverpool players wore black strips in memory of former player John Lennon. The club announced that they would be selling these shirts in honor of Lennon's life; therefore, he became known as the "King of Shirts."
After these two clubs, there are several other big names in European football.
United's latest jersey sales record was set last year when they sold 300,000 jerseys in just five days after defeating Liverpool in the UEFA Champions League final. This is a record number of shirts sold in such a short period of time.
The next best-selling football shirt is Maradona's original 1986 Argentina squad shirt which sold 80,000 copies. The actual number may be much higher as not all copies sold in South America were destroyed by fire in 1990 which left many players without a shirt for their national team game against England. If we include these copies then the total number of shirts sold would be around 180,000.
Other famous football shirts include Diego Maradona's second Argentina shirt from 1990 which sold 60,000 copies, Ronaldinho's debut Brazil shirt which sold 40,000 copies, and Kaká's first Brazilian club shirt which sold 30,000 copies.
It is estimated that the world's biggest football fan is from China where 150 million people love the game. That's about one in every five people!
From 2011/12 to 2015/16, Everton sold an average of 80,000 jerseys each year worldwide. 6. From 2011/12 to 2015/16, Tottenham Hotspur sold an average of 268,000 jerseys worldwide every year. 5. From 2011/12 to 2015/16, Manchester City sold 342,000 jerseys internationally on average every year. 4. From 2011/12 to 2015/16, Arsenal sold an average of 835,000 jerseys internationally every year. 3. From 2011/12 to 2015/16, Liverpool sold an average of 956,000 jerseys internationally every year.

In the UK, the official statistic is provided by the Football Shirt Association, which does not include replica shirts. They estimate that between them, Everton, Spurs, and Manchester United sell about 1.5 million shirts a year. That would put them together at number 2 behind Man City who have an estimated sales volume of 2 million shirts a year.
Liverpool and Arsenal sell more than any other club in the UK but their global markets make up a small part of their revenue. While they are top of the pile in the UK, they are not top of the league when it comes to selling shirts abroad. That title belongs to Barcelona with estimates ranging from $150 to $200 million a year.
Leo Messi's Barcelona shirt is the most popular worldwide, with Cristiano Ronaldo's coming in second. World Soccer Shop (via) has conducted a research of the most popular football jerseys worldwide, and unsurprisingly, the same old rivalry tops the list. The two players are at the top because they have more support from their clubs and therefore sell more merchandise.
They are followed by other big names such as Diego Maradona, Alan Shearer, Pelé and Maradona again.

Manchester United Football Club Manchester United has been crowned the most valuable sports team in the world by Forbes for three years in a row. The club's worth is expected to exceed $3 billion this year, making it the first athletic franchise to do so.
Its opponent in the 2011-12 UEFA Champions League was Barcelona, which made oil wells seem like toys when it came to pricing themselves out of the tournament. Their value back then was $75 million.
Barcelona went on to win the competition but its price tag has since dropped dramatically, being valued at only $15 million this year.
The NFL's New England Patriots are the most recognized sports team in the world. In 2010 they became the first team to be featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated twice. They also have the record for the longest winning streak in American football history with 22 games. The Patriots won their last game of the season yesterday ( October 20th ) against Miami Dolphins 24-21 at Foxboro Stadium.
They have been undefeated so far this season and are currently leading the AFC East division with a 7-0 record. The last time an NFL team started with such a perfect record was when the 1972 Miami Dolphins did the same. They ended up losing all 16 games that season.
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is one of the best quarterbacks in NFL history.
Right now, these are the four biggest shirt sponsorship agreements in football.
One of the reasons these jerseys are so expensive is that football is not just a popular sport in the United States, but also across the world. Because of its popularity, it has the potential to become a full-fledged business from which you may harvest great riches if you know how to move about.
The first thing you need to understand is that sports jerseys are not just worn by athletes, but by fans too. Fans wear jerseys to show their support for their teams. Many athletes will own several different jerseys because they will change according to how they are used on the field. For example, if an athlete gets bruised up during a game then he or she will take off their jersey to allow the bruises to heal.
Another reason people buy soccer jerseys is because they want to be associated with a team or player. Some people buy jerseys with other players' names and numbers on them to show support for those players. Others buy uniforms with their own names and numbers on them so they can play dress up and feel like celebrities!
Yet another reason people buy soccer jerseys is because they believe the team owner or manager himself/herself actually wears the uniform. They think if they buy the jersey they will be able to meet the owner or manager and say "hello" to him/her. Some people even pay big money for a jersey with their name and number on it so they can sell it later for much more than they bought it for!
