You Can Buy A Megan Rapinoe Inspired Christmas Jumper

You Can Buy A Megan Rapinoe Inspired Christmas Jumper

If you're a fan of American soccer star Megan Rapinoe and want to express your admiration for the two-time World Cup winner this Christmas, then look no further than this one-of-a-kind festive jumper.

NotJustClothing have created a white, red and yellow World Cup themed sweater with the wording "Merry Xmas and a Rapi-Noe year' sketched on the front.

The back includes a Golden Boot trophy detail to celebrate her achievements last summer, as well as a 'All I want for Xmas is equal pay' copy.

Each purchase of a jumper will raise money towards a minimum pledge of £50,000 from the company.

Each year, NotJust partners with charities to ensure each purchase contributes towards a cause they believe in.

Across the last two Christmas periods, customers have raised over £30,000 to help vulnerable people all over the world - from children, to refugees, to the homeless.

This year, they have partnered with organisations Save the Children, Kicking Off, Equality Now, Remake and The Big Issue, along with Mind, Plastic Oceans and Stonewall to make positive change.

NotJustClothing spoke about the inspiration behind the Megan Rapinoe brand new design ahead of next month's festivities.

"In 2019, the women's game continued its charge forwards: exhilarating games, record attendances, increased publicity and - crucially - a figurehead for the movement." the official website reads.

"From equal pay to Donald Trump, the USWNT captain has been both visual and vocal - and that's before we even talk about her historic World Cup and Balon D'or double.

"So have a merry Christmas and a Rapinoe year with this knit."

During last year's festive period, when we were still clinging on to World Cup fever, a sweater dedicated to Gareth 'Get Your Waistcoat Out' Southgate was created.

Many, including a number of staff at SPORTbible, turned up to work looking smart and sophisticated, while being absolutely satisfied with our body temperature.

The knitted jumper featured a classic waistcoat and tie design, as well as the 'Christmas Is Coming Home' strapline slapped across the back.

According to the website, to produce one of these Gareth Southgate 'Coming Home' Christmas jumpers was time-consuming, highly specialised and technically intricate work.

Using the latest hi-tech knitting machines, it took 45 minutes to weave the front and back sections.

The sleeves were cut by hand and the collar was attached by carefully feeding each jumper into a separate machine.
