National Jerseys and other team memorabilia
So, in looking through a lot of the messages posted here below, and on other international ice hockey forums, many of the messages frequently ask about where to find national team jerseys or other national team stuff. I contacted the IIHF a couple of years ago to ask if they have a mechanism for making team items available, and they didn't seem to even understand why I would ask. I contacted a major sports products firm that specializes in marketing national team products in Scandinavian markets to ask if they would have any interest in creating partnerships with national teams around the world to market jerseys and other merchandise, and they reacted as if it was the stupidest idea they had ever heard.
Perhaps it is. But as many national teams finance themselves at least partly through selling jerseys and other team related products, wouldn't it make sense for either IIHF or some private company to step up to provide a central outlet to provide what I see lots of customers (including myself) asking for?
