Regular price £65.00 Sale

Founded in 1988, Ebbets Field Flannels have become renowned for their ability to manufacture exact replicas of genuine mid-Century American sportswear apparel. Inspired by lesser-known independent league teams and dedicated to using original materials and techniques, Ebbets Field Flannels are committed to staying faithful to original designs and have grown to become the finest producer of vintage American baseball attire.

The Chiefs were the brainchild of Atlanta Braves’ vice president, Dick Cecil, who became enamored with soccer even though he had never seen a game. In 1968 the Chiefs moved over to the new North American Soccer League. In a season full of highlights, Atlanta defeated Manchester City 3-2 in a huge upset in an exhibition game. The shocked City team demanded a rematch, which Atlanta also won 2-1. The Chiefs topped off 1968 by defeating the San Diego Toros, to become the NASL’s first champion.
