This shirt was acquired by way of a female accountant at PFC Cherno More Varna’s Ticha stadium during my visit. The shirt is made by Bulgarian manufacturer Tomy Sport, and while this may not be a household name in the West the material is still suitable for a football shirt. While the fabric is similar to the “Puma” Lokomotiv Plovdiv shirt I have, this material is softer and with a matte finish–similar in many ways to Adidas shirts produced in Turkey under the Adidas license in the late 1990s. The badge and sponsor are sewn into the white and blue fabric, making it a one of a kind piece produced specifically for Cherno More Varna. The accountant in question also had a match worn piece available which I eschewed due to its prohibitive price–its material was the same, which leads me to believe that Tomy Sport replicas are the same quality as player shirts.
