Hi guys! I'm pretty much new to ice-hockey. I've been watching for a few weeks and I really can't get enough! I signed up to NHL.com and i really enjoy watching a lot of different teams. I've even been watching some old games. I watched (i think) 2011 Stanly Cup match where Boston hammered the Canucks. I found myself really rooting for the Canucks and since then i've been supporting the team and following all things Canucks.
I have bought a couple of jersey's online, but after reading a thread on this forum it made me understand it's important to have official merch. I'm pretty sure the jersey's i have are not legit. The reason i got cheaper ones is because i live in Northern Ireland (UK/Ireland) and by the time i pay for the jersey, the postage and the customs charges a single jersey is costing over $200.


In a nutshell: Is there anywhere in the UK to buy official Canucks merch so i don't get stung with crazy postage and customs charges?

Pretty iffy.

Best place to buy official and legit merch would be on NHL.com

Its funny, in Vancouver you can basically buy any jersey from any team. Unless theres a big sports store in a big mall around your vicinity, it'd be quite difficult.

You get hammered with customs fees on NHL.com though.

I've always just bought when I've been in the US/Canada. The UK is pretty poor when it comes to NHL merchandise. If you go to a website called FansEdge you can arrange delivery with all the customs fees included, but I'm not sure how expensive it is. My brother swears by it.

NHL does custom jerseys, you can order one with his name and number. Just a suggestion

Just checked now, shipping on a jersey at FansEdge works out at £22 including duties and taxes. Not too bad. They seem to have some sort of deal on. That's reduced from about £40.

I got my jersey from somewhere in Scotland (it's not customized though) for like 80 quid including p&p, it's not fake either. This was a couple of years ago so I'll see if I can find the site.

I got mine from here: http://www.acasports...p?cPath=322_484

But they don't have Canucks anymore, sorry.

Where in N.I are you? You could go to the Belfast Giants team shop and ask them. They might order in for you because I know the Coventry Blaze store does.

Thank you everyone! Very helpful and welcoming! I just read a rumour about a Johnny Canucks logo on next seasons jersey. I am so tempted to wait for that! I up-voted everyone, thanks again!
