Trying to find the perfect gift can be very stressful, so we’ve rounded up the best women in sport merchandise around to lend a hand.
After a tough year, things are beginning to look a little brighter for us here in Australia and the prospect of spending time with loved ones over the holiday period is a welcome reality for many. Gift lists are being composed for Santa to come through with the goods and we have a few women in sport items you might want to add to your list.
A great go to for gift lists and giving. Here’s a few titles released this year that we can highly recommend. Get out there and support your local bookstore!
- Women in Boots: Football and Feminism in the 1970s (Marion Stell, Heather Reid)
- Clearing Boundaries: The Rise of Australian Women’s Cricket (Fiona Bollen with Matt Bonser)
- Loving Sports When They Don’t Love You Back: Dilemmas of the Modern Fan (Jessica Luther, Kavitha Davidson)
- Victress: Women who paved the way in Australian Sport (Corinne Hall, Michael Randall)
- One Life Megan Rapinoe
- Developing Sport for Women and Girls (Emma Sherry [Editor], Katie Rowe [Editor])
We all know how hard it is to find women’s sport related merch and even harder to find a women’s fit. When the Matildas released their 2020/21 away kit with no women’s cut, the displeasure was unequivocal. After promising to rectify it by 2022 for the next version of the national kit, the FFA relented and Nike have now released the away kit in women’s fit. A win for women’s sports fans! Grab both versions here!
The 2021 season gear hasn’t yet arrived in time for this list, but you might be able to find some 2020 season merch for a bargain via your club’s website.
Grab some supporter gear while the season is on or sign up as a member via the WNBL Store.
Stock up on some Seattle Storm Champions gear or the iconic orange WNBA hoodie at the WNBA Store.
The 2020 season WBBL caps with the high pony design are a great example of products being redesigned with women in mind, available at the Cricket Australia shop.
Want to relive the T20 WWC from earlier this year? Let’s be honest, we all do. Get some discount merch here.

Unfortunately, rugby league hasn’t capitalised on the potential market for NRLW and Women’s State of Origin merchandise or memberships. Supporters are keen to spend their cash, but alas, there is not much to purchase or ways to support their women’s teams.
