Incredible customer service, a solid set of features, great prices and more are what you can expect from our TopTenREVIEWS Silver Award winner, Fox Soccer Shop. The best part about this online soccer equipment service is the immense selection of items and the ease of navigation. We were able to find every item we were looking for quickly and easily, which is saying something because the amount of items available through Fox Soccer Shop is almost daunting.
We also liked the connection between Fox Soccer Shop and FSC (Fox Soccer Channel) which allows users access to all the soccer news they’d need; all around, a great service for soccer fanatics.
Ease of Use
Finding what you need is not a problem at Fox Soccer Shop. We rated them as ‘Great’ for searchability because how easy it was to navigate their site. All possible categories are listed on the left nav bar in alphabetical order. From there you’ll be able to choose your preferred search, for instance, footwear. Once you’ve chosen this option you’ll be taken to another page filled with subcategories. These subcategories include more specific types of footwear—such as Firm Ground and Hard Ground—or specific brands you wish to look at. Basically, in a matter of 15 seconds you can find the exact item you’re looking for.
The reason Fox Soccer Shop had to make their searches so specific is because their inventory is so robust, a feature we especially enjoy. It’s hard to know if what you’re getting is a quality product when you can’t compare it to a wide range of similar products. Again, using footwear, we were able to sift through dozens of shoes in one subcategory and hundreds all together.
We were also extremely impressed with the prices at Fox Soccer Shop, which we found to be extremely competitive. In most cases, it was less or equal to the price offered by other Online Soccer Equipment sites. To validate this claim we chose four popular products: An AC Milan 09/10 Ronaldinho 80 Home Soccer Jersey, a Liverpool home jersey, a pair of Adidas Predator PowerSwerves and a Select Numero 10 ball. In the case of the Ronaldinho jersey Fox Soccer Shop offered one of the best prices, while they were fairly even on all the rest.
Because Fox Soccer Shop operates under the same banner as their parent company, Fox Soccer Channel, they are able to offer the best selection of news and soccer coverage out of any Online Soccer Equipment site we reviewed. By simply clicking the FoxSoccer.com link at the top of the page you can view all of the latest FSC news. You will also be able to view statistics, how teams are ranking in their leagues, and highlight videos of the games.
You will have the opportunity to receive exclusive offers and discounts by signing up for the Fox Soccer Shop email list. Being a part of this list could potentially save you big bucks if you are a frequenter to the site. You can also purchase in bulk through Fox Soccer Shop. This is a great feature if you’re looking to outfit your team. If this is the case, Fox Soccer Shop offers a Teamwear section on their site through which you can order everything from jerseys to socks to training pants. All of this is offered in men’s, women’s and youth sizes.
Some other cool features include a great clearance section where you can find a variety of high to low quality items at a reduced price. Contests are also available to all Fox Soccer Shop users to potentially win great prizes such as a jersey singed by the entire England team. The only thing we would have liked to have seen and didn’t is some sort of Fox Soccer Shop membership through which user can gain continual access to discounted prices like our top rated site Eurosport.
An Online Soccer Equipment site that only offers the necessities is not worth visiting; the reason being, what necessary for one individual may not be an essential for another. Obviously we expect Online Soccer Equipment outlets to offer soccer shoes, jerseys, balls, keeper equipment, etc., but what really makes Fox Soccer Shop shine is their awesome selection of extra stuff. The extra stuff includes an immense category filled with Guinness merchandise, a section of posters, casual wear, practice equipment and more.
We especially appreciated the category, DVDs and Books, which offer informative and entertaining outlets for soccer patrons of all interests. For instance, the section of DVDs contains both old soccer games and soccer training, both of which can be used to better your team. As well, there is a section of games which includes board and video games.
Replica gear is also available for all the soccer fans out there. This includes jerseys, balls, mugs, hats and more. Every major team from around the world is represented here.
We were extremely impressed with Fox Soccer Shop’s customer support. Our favorite feature was the FAQ section, which we found to be large, well organized and helpful. You will also have the option of using their phone or email contacts to reach customer support reps.
Fox Soccer Shop is a great alternative to our #1 service Eurosport. Their feature set is extremely conducive to soccer players, coaches and fans, their customer service is great, and we couldn’t be happier with how easy the service is to use. We especially liked the connection between Fox Soccer Shop and FSC which provides users with soccer news. However, we would have liked to see some sort of membership program granting users discounts on all items.
