UEFA Sleeve Patches Now Available To ALL Authorised Retailers Globally

Sporting iD is delighted to announce that, as of July 1st, all authorised retailers will be able to sell UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League sleeve patch products.

To give adequate time to prepare for what, to many, is a completely new market, UEFA sleeve patches are now available to pre-order with us online. However, it must be reiterated that they MUST NOT BE SOLD to customers before July 1st, unless you’re already able to do so under the current ruling.

The UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Europa League are the most prestigious club competitions in the world, with the UCL Starball patch being perhaps one of the most widely recognised symbols in football.

Over the coming months, we will be working to ensure that fans from every corner of the globe will be in a position to have these prestigious products applied to their favourite team’s official replica jersey.
