Football in Russia hasn’t had the same consistent history of other European leagues, with their top-flight not created until 2001. The split from the Soviet Union bought about the Russian Top Division in 1992, which became the Russian Premier League in 2001. In our bid to stock a varied selection of club football shirts we stock jerseys and merchandise for several Russian teams.

Official Football tops From Russia
Currently sixteen teams compete for the Russian Premier League title. With home and away fixtures against each team this produces a league with 30 games per club per season. As with other European leagues the team with the most points is awarded the title of Champion of Russia, and the bottom two clubs are relegated to the next tier, with promotion for two of that leagues clubs.
Prior to 2012 the Russian football league was traditionally a summer tournament, due to the inclement weather conditions during winter months in Russia. However, from 2012 to coordinate with other European football leagues, and avoid disruption due to tournaments such as the UEFA European Championship and the FIFA World Cup the Premier League moved to an Autumn - Spring timetable. The football league in Russia does take a three month winter break to accommodate the weather, and as such scheduling for some teams before and after can on occasion be hectic.
Spartak Moscow leads the way in Russian top-flight titles, they have accrued nine so far but none since 2001. CSKA Moscow has won on six occasions, Zenit St. Petersburg has four titles, Lokomotiv Moscow and Rubin Kazan have two each and Alania Vladikavkaz won once in 1995.
Of these clubs we stock football shirts and/or accessories for Spartak Moscow, Lokomotv Moscow and Zenit St. Petersburg and we also stock the latest Dynamo Moscow jerseys.
