A look at the best festive outfits that have been produced for fans to wear, featuring Manchester United, Arsenal, Real Madrid and even Jurgen Klopp

Over the years, flamboyant Christmas jumpers have made a comeback, and it is little surprise that football clubs have been eager to jump on the bandwagon.

Some have offered relatively modest efforts but many have pushed the boat out to give their fans the type of unique festive apparel that they crave.

Of course, most supporters would never be seen wearing such eccentric clothing at any other time of the year, but at Christmas is almost seems right.

The tradition of the Christmas jumper - in Europe at least - is most alive and kicking in the UK, where there is a greater need for thick garments than in many areas of western continental Europe.

The Premier League marketing machine was quick to spot a gap in the market and most big clubs have produced sweaters for their fans to sport around the packed festive schedule.

As such, Goal has taken a look at some of the best Christmas jumpers available this year from all around the globe.

 

  • Christmas Jumper

    Chelsea

    This season it has been Chelsea who have been most prolific in terms of Christmas jumper production, producing three different designs.

    Perhaps the most unique of these is an image of Santa and his reindeer over the London skyline.

  • Chelsea Christmas Jumper

    One of their other designs allows the wearer to appear with their head on an elf's body, with the tag 'Chelsea elfie' emblazoned below.

  • Liverpool Christmas Jumper

    Liverpool

    Liverpool's first effort is rather modest, sporting the club badge on the heart of an otherwise traditional Christmas jumper.

  • Liverpool Christmas Jumper

    The Reds have surely missed a trick with 'Yule Never Walk Alone' on this second effort.
  • Everton Christmas Jumper

    Everton

    Across Stanley Park, Everton have opted for a 'Blue Christmas' sweater, although the sweets on their jumper appear to be more like traditional humbugs than toffees!
  • Man Utd Christmas Jumper

    Manchester United

    Manchester United have gone with a rather traditional jumper, with Santa on the front boasting a hat with the club crest on it and proclaiming: 'Santa is a Red.'
  • Man City Christmas Jumper

    Manchester City

    Manchester City's Christmas sweater is a rather eye-catching number in club colours, with Santa and his reindeer a silhouette in front of a blue Moon, flying high above the Etihad Stadium.
  • Spurs Christmas Jumper

    Tottenham

    Spurs have gone with a skiing reindeer on the front of their Christmas jumper for 2018.
  • Newcastle Christmas Jumper

    Newcastle

    Newcastle have also gone with an elf theme for their women's jersey design.
  • Real Madrid Christmas jumper

    Real Madrid

    Who needs a fairy on top of a Christmas tree when you can have your club crest, as Real Madrid display so perfectly.
  • Orlando City Christmas Jumper

    Orlando City

    MLS franchises make no bones about the attractiveness of their Christmas apparel, branding them 'ugly sweaters' in the League's store. Orlando City's jumper makes for an especially garish concoction of purple and mustard yellow.
  • Celtic Christmas Jumper

    Celtic

    Celtic's reindeer sweater, with the club's green and white hoops down the arms, is a tasteful but fun effort.
  • Christmas Jumper

    Leigh Griffiths

    Celtic fans can also hop onto eBay, where they can find this special Leigh Griffiths jumper, wishing fans a 'Happy Griffmas'.
  • Paul Pogba Christmas Jumper

    Paul Pogba

    Of course Paul Pogba has own Christmas jumper, and of course Santa is dabbing in it.
  • Cristiano Ronaldo

    Cristiano Ronaldo

    Hunt on eBay and you can grab yourself your very own Cristiano Ronaldo Christmas sweater, although is would surely be more apt if it said: 'Merry CR7stmas'?
  • Jurgen Klopp Christmas Jumper

    Jurgen Klopp

    Believe it or not, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp also has his own Christmas jumper, with the greeting reading 'Merry Kloppmas'.
  • Gareth Southgate xmas jumper 1920x1080

    Gareth Southgate

    Saving the best for last, England manager Gareth Southgate's waistcoat became indelibly linked with the Three Lions' stunning run to the World Cup semi-finals this summer and has been reprised by Not Just in the form of a Christmas jumper for the winter.
