Best Inspirational Gift: A Soccer Trip Consultation
If your soccer fan dreams of maybe seeing a game in person some day, you can help them get started. Groundhopper Soccer Guides offers trip consulting, tickets, tours and even personal guiding services, and now we offer gift certificates.
You can give a “Phoner” consultation as a gift; it comes with the latest edition of our guidebook, a phone call with Paul for Q&A and planning help, and a $50 credit toward any future purchase. And it has no expiration date.
Best Soccer Book: Ours!
Of course, we think one of the best soccer gifts is the 2021-2022 edition of The Groundhopper Guide to Soccer in England. We’re also offering a special 25% discount if you purchase the book via this gift guide. Just click the book title above and enter “holiday21” in the coupon code section.

Soccer Kits and More
Chances are your soccer fan supports a particular club and/or loves some wearable gear. Fanatics.com has autographed jerseys, clothing, accessories, collectibles, soccer balls and more featuring international clubs and national teams. They also have a dedicated MLS store.
Vintage Football Shirts
Groundhopper Guides has visited the Classic Football Shirts shop in Manchester and we were overwhelmed by their selection of what is claimed to be the world’s largest collection of football shirts. You can order straight from their website, too.
Other Gifts for Soccer Fans at Amazon
Amazon is a great source for Christmas gifts for soccer lovers. You’ll find ornaments, t-shirts, socks, soccer balls, and much more.
Ted Lasso Gifts
Best soccer gift that keeps on giving? Live games all season!
You’ll score big with a gift subscription to one (or all) of the streaming networks for watching soccer games in the US: ESPN+ for Championship, FA Cup, League Cup and UEFA Nations League; Paramount+ for UEFA Champions League and Europa League; and Peacock Premium for Premier League. The best all-around solution for streaming sports in the U.S. is fuboTV.
Gifts for the Serious Soccer Lover
Everybody knows about the Premier League and Champions League, but we at Groundhopper Guides love to sing the praises of lower-league football. The Non-League Paper has digital and print subscription options for those who want to dive deeper into the pyramid of leagues.
Finally, The Athletic features unrivaled sports coverage across every team you care about and every league you follow.
