With the Euros and the summer fast approaching, there’s no better time to restock your rotation of footy kits. So, thankfully Lover’s FC have teamed up with Rizla for a collection of reworked classic jerseys from some of the most iconic teams of all time with deep connections to culture and community. The shirts arrive in electric blue, red and navy blue stripes and an eye-catching green and white to round things off, making for a collection that’s just as suitable for on the pitch as it is for a few pints down the local. Also, In celebration of the collection’s roots to community, Lover’s FC and Rizla took their shirts to the streets of Peckham to team up with RYE LANEZ TATTOO, where their team members rocked the kits at the iconic Ozzies Cafe. If you’re fancying something a bit different to the typical classic Real Madrid and A.C. Milan shirts, the Lovers FC x Rizla kits are now available exclusively at the Lover’s Football Club shop here.
