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, the brand are committed to staying faithful to original designs. Ebbets Field Flannels has grown to become the finest producer of vintage American baseball attire.

As members of the USA in 1967, the Cougars were represented by Northern Ireland’s Glentoran team, which was based in east Belfast. Detroit joined the new NASL in 1968 when the two original leagues merged. The Cougars played home matches at Tiger Stadium, home of the baseball Tigers and NFL Lions. Detroit was one of the teams who folded after the 1968 NASL season. The Motor City received a new NASL franchise – the Express – ten years later.
