Soccer fanaticism is all about undying loyalty to your club, whether it's a giant like Real Madrid or a minnow like Reading, and there's no better way to show the world who you support than by wearing a jersey.
A year away from the next World Cup, and the "beautiful game" has never been more popular -- though in this town the jerseys can be remarkably hard to find.
JMT Metrosport Soccer and Sports (777 Warden, 416-752-0870, and others) stocks a delirious assortment of official team tops, priced from $109.99 to $119.99.
Toronto's only downtown soccer outfitter, Corner Kick (627A Dufferin, 416-532-5425), specializes in custom orders in team-sized quantities, but if one of its own replicas is in stock, a single goes for $59.99, and official jerseys cost $99.99 and up.
