Top 5 Holiday Gifts For Soccer Fans

With Hanukkah already underway and Christmas mere days away, The Yanks Are Coming presents our first annual Top 5 holiday gifts for soccer fans. From the latest in kits to books that may change the way you view the game, you’ll surely find a gift for that special soccer hooligan in your life (or something awesome for yourself). Hate the list? Then go buy a Yanks shirt.

In no particular order…

David Beckham PSG Shirt

While Becks may or may not actually end up in France, you can impress your friends with this sweet nouveau-riche Ligue 1 side Paris St. Germain t-shirt made by Nike.

Hops Holster 12 Can Ammo Pack

Imagine yourself at an American Outlaws tailgate wearing this baby. Enough said.

How Soccer Explains The World

A masterful piece of writing that is a must-read for both soccer and non-soccer fans alike. Required reading for all TYAC staff members. Highly recommended by Editor-In-Chief Neil W. Blackmon and Associate Editor Jon Levy.

Tickets To The Merseyside Derby (2/25/2012)

Head to Liverpool to catch Landon’s last match with Everton before he heads back stateside to defend the MLS Cup.

U.S. Soccer Thematic Gnome

The good folks over at U.S. Soccer never cease to amaze us. What’s next? A Sunil Gulati bobblehead?

Have a great gift for a soccer fan? Send Dan Seco a shout at to see your gifts in an upcoming post. From all of us at The Yanks Are Coming, have a great holiday season.

On a side note, if you ever find yourself in Midtown Manhattan looking to watch soccer on a cold Saturday morning, be sure to check out Triple Crown Restaurant & Ale House for an Irish breakfast and a great pint of Guinness.

    “How Soccer Explains The World” is my go-to gift for anyone even remotely interested in soccer, globalization, interesting stories, and good journalism… even if Franky Foer didn’t want to participate in my public radio series on sports coverage in different cultures a couple years back.

    Thanks for the gift ideas. I’m definitely getting my husband the gnome. So hilarious!

    I am dressing as the gnome for the next game!
