If you are looking for something a little bit out of the ordinary for a gift for the man in your life or for Father’s Day, take a look at Art of Football, a unique clothing and artwork site which offers a range of t-shirts, sweatshirts, prints and canvases featuring your favourite football stars in artwork painted by a number of designers.

Art of Football has a very interesting philosophy. All of their designs have been thoughtfully made primarily as a piece of art to do justice to those moments of high energy and elation which mean so much to fans. The designs aim to capture all the raw emotion and energy felt during those seconds of celebration and to capture these with style.
They want to move away from the majority of football T-shirts that feature generic, screen-printed images of footballers like Luis Suarez to create something really unique.
You can even send in those sporting moments that mean the most to you to suggest a new design they might like to feature.
Football isn’t the only sport they feature, however, there’s also boxing and rugby. It’s easy to choose your favourite as you can pick your favourite team using a drop-down box.
We were sent two t-shirts to try. Mat’s features the legendary Ronaldinho.
Both the names of the garments and their descriptions are rather special too. Here’s the description of the Ronaldinho football artwork t-shirts and sweatshirts.
|Art of Football Ronaldhino T-Shirt – £25|
“No one can compare to Ronaldinho. I remember his plays, his dribbles. I remember him winning every title at the Camp Nou. He made history at Barca, he made history with Brazil and he’s still making history.” — Neymar Jr
“I’ve worked with some great players in my time and all at a very interesting period in their careers, nineteen to twenty years old. But, with due respect to the others, Ronaldinho was a cut above the rest.” — Celso Roth, Ronaldinho’s coach at Gremio, his first club”
Ieuan’s t-shirt is called Enter The Dragon which celebrates Wales qualifying for the Euros last year. Here’s the description and this particular design is also available as a print.
|Enter The Dragon Kids’ T-Shirt – £14.99|
“After a superbly exciting campaign, Wales reached the finals of a major tournament for the first time since 1958 as they head for France and Euro 2016. Here the superstars Bale and Ramsey celebrate but this was a team effort from the boys in red. Having beaten one of the favourites Belgium along the way, they fear no-one. History beckons.
Made of soft and good quality cotton and beautifully packaged in retro football paper, these would make a great Father’s Day gift for the football-obsessed dad which is really something quite special.
Art of Football t-shirts make a perfect gift for a footie mad dad (or mum!) and their son (or daughter!). Great for Father’s Day or just to celebrate your love of The Beautiful Game and reasonably priced too.
