1. Umbro waist pack $30

Umrbo has been a brand focused on soccer since the 1920s, adapting right along with the game. This waist pack is the perfect storage accessory for any busy Soccerista. A minimalist design makes certain that this pack will go with anything and can transition from on the field to off. 

2. Senda Athletics New Sock $29.99

Any Soccerista or soccer parent will tell you that nothing makes a more perfect stocking stuffer than a good pair of socks. These Senda socks are the real deal. They come in eight different colors — black, white, red, blue, yellow, navy, green, orange — and feature a cool geometric pattern. But these socks aren’t just for style, they are designed for comfort, protection, recovery and are guaranteed not to slip. 

3. Beat Everybody Crewneck Sweatshirt $54.95

“BE” is simply one of the most aspirational and positive words in our lexicon. It conjures up stillness, yet so much possibility.  On the other hand,  BEAT EVERYBODY, which is emblazoned on the back,  is just kick ass and bold. The duality of these messages are perfect and what makes the messaging of the brand, created by Alex Morgan, Allie Long, and Kelley O’Hara so much fun. This crewneck sweatshirt is crafted with a cotton and polyester blend, making it the perfect mid-weight sweatshirt.

4. Playbook Products Coasters $30

Are you even a Soccerista if you don’t have some kind of soccer themed decor in your house? These Playbook Products coasters are perfect for letting anyone who visits your house that a soccer fan lives there. This particular pack comes in a set of four and features plays for some of the USWNT’s greatest hits, like Brandi Chastain’s 1999 World Cup winning PK and Rose Lavelle’s run on the Netherlands in the 2019 World Cup.  


5. ALKÉ Jerseys

If you’ve read our recent profile on this brand then you know that we at GSN love ALKÉ. This brand is run by women who love soccer for women who love soccer. Each of their fashion forward products comes with a little history lesson when you order online, which is always a bonus. While we love everything to come out of this French fashion house, our absolute favorites are the Suzanne, Jeanne, and Tenerife Honeyball jerseys.

6. Riobol $39.95

For the player who is always on the lookout for the next best thing we highly recommend Riobol. This small weighted ball is basically an all in one workout. The miniaturized size helps in training finesse and technique while the extra weight is perfect for a little extra strength training. This Brazilian invention will help Socceristas of all ages hone their ball handling skills and takes up less room than a traditional soccer ball.
