Here’s the official new Tampa Bay Rowdies shirts straight from the NASL team. Missed a golden opportunity in my opinion – they should be green shirts. Buy them here for $30
This “unofficial” Tampa Bay Rowdies t-shirt is available from Who Are Ya Designs for $18.99. Why is it unofficial? Well, it’s a long story. It goes back to wanting an official Rowdies jersey.
This is one of my favorite shirts. Originally I could only order them in bulk, so I order a couple dozen, and sold them through this website. Sold them mostly to Florida but people have bought them coast to coast.
A month after I started selling them, the Tampa Bay Rowdies reformed. Who saw that coming? You can see version 2.0 play in the new NASL second division. There’s a lawsuit over the logo (which caused me headaches) that’s caused the team to be called FC Tampa Bay for a few seasons. The people who claim to own the logo do sell this shirt. Their site is http://section219.com/. They definitely don’t make it easy to order. Last I checked they sold them for $36 each.

Slightly off topic, but Peter Ward of Tampa Bay Rowdies fame wrote a book called “No Goal, No Glory. An English Soccer Star in the NASL and MISL” that’s available on the Kindle. Since it is so hard to get anything Rowdies, I thought I’d include it here.
