It's the pride and joy of any self respecting football fan but is the shirt on your back the real McCoy? Inside Out investigates counterfeit football shirts.
Every football season eager Magpie fans queue up to grab the new Newcastle United football shirt.
Newcastle United fans spend millions of pounds each year buying these replica football kits cheaps. It's a symbol of pride and any self-respecting Toon Army fan has to have one.
But many supporters could be buying shoddy copies smuggled into Britain by organised gangs.
Away from the bright lights of St James' Park, counterfeiters are one step ahead of the game. Inside Out travelled to Bangkok to investigate the growing problem of counterfeit shirts.
Fake football shirts
Earlier this year a plot to smuggle hundreds of fake football shirts into Newcastle city centre was uncovered by Customs investigators.
The counterfeit Newcastle United shirts were made in Far East sweatshops and were destined for car boot sales, market stalls and pubs.
The consignment of 88 shirts from Thailand was seized at Newcastle Airport in May 2003.
The real shirts sell for about £40 but these inferior copies were designed to be sold for around £10
Winners and losers
The shirts have been donated by the relatives of Bob John, scorer in the 1932 showpiece, who played 467 times for the Gunners between 1922 and 1937.
This latest memorabilia joins a long list of famous exhibits including Michael Thomas’ boots from Anfield ’89, Charlie George’s FA Final Cup shirt from 1971 and Alan Smith’s shirt from the 1994 European Cup Winners’ Cup Final, as well as medals and caps belonging to David O’Leary, Lee Dixon, Brian Marwood and many others.
The museum, which had over 120,000 visitors last year, is open from Monday to Friday from 10am to 6pm, on Saturdays from 11am to 6pm and on Sundays from 10am to 5pm. Final admittance is 5pm on weekdays and 4pm at weekends.
