1. Singapore national team (Price: $77)

The highest priced jersey in the list is that Singapore. The creatives on the Singapore’s new kit took inspiration from the mythical creature known as the Merlion – a half lion, half fish – which became the Republic’s national symbol in 1964. Its scales inspired the gym red graphic across the chest for the home kit. The equator blue away kit is a play on Singapore’s gleaming modernism where the soaring skyscrapers and their dazzling presence reflect the ocean at night. However, buying one could burn a hole in your pockets as it is priced at a whopping $77!
