The genesis of the idea that eventually became GOLAZZO® started out over a decade ago. Interest in vintage football shirts had grown and grown during the start of the 2000s and it had gotten more and more expensive to get player worn jerseys from particularly the 1980s. Back then the idea was called a rather uninspiring Retro Gol and we tried to make some shirts that weren't very good. In the intervening period, interest in and knowledge of vintage football shirts had only grown further. Encouraged by this and having learnt much more, we started our journey again in 2019. This time we were clear on our focus: an absolutely zealous attentiveness to detail in reproducing player shirts exactly as worn by legends of the game. We spent 2 years developing this and launched our range and website in 2021. Read more about how we do what we do here.
What’s in a Name?
As impressionable football fans of the 80s and early 90s, naturally Channel 4’s Gazetta Football Italia had a huge impression on us. The intro theme to the show might be the best ever for a football programme. The iconic ending of the theme provided the name for our brand.
