Here's an updated list of UK outlets.
There are plenty of legit UK websites you can check out for NFL jersies and other gear. Some also have "Bricks & Mortar" shops/premises you can visit as well. Most also sell the proper Nike-printed imported NFL "game" jersies, and some of them also offer merch for the other major-league US sports :-

Jersies :-

- Football America,
- Nike GB official site,
- Touchdown Sports, (currently in the process of closing down....)
- USA Sports, (They also run short-term "pop-up" stores in major shopping centres around the country from time to time - details are usually posted in their Facebook group).
- Second City, (mainly older stuff)
- JD Sports, (Just a few odd "superstar" jersies at present)
- Greaves Sports,
- UK American Sports Store,
(They order from Fanatics in the US for you - you don't save any tax overall, but you do save a bit on shipping). Recently re-opened after a long time closed.
- American Sports Apparel, (Facebook Group pooling orders from a range of legit USA outlets. Membership fee option. See group page for more details.)
- NFL Shop @ Tottenham Hotspur - a range of NFL gear (including jersies) is available from the NFL Shop in the Spurs megastore @ White Hart Lane. Haven't been there myself yet, so can't verify which type of Nike "game" jersies they sell...

**NOTE** there are 2 types of Basic replica jersey (The Nike "game" spec, typically retailing for between £68 and £80) available in the UK. The NFL Europe Shop and their "Fanatics UK" mother site print ALL jersies to order (whether listed as "stock" or not) using thin, shiny heat transfers. Although the base jersey is the same, the printing is markedly inferior in appearance, quality and durability to the proper imported Nike factory "silicon-printed" ones currently sold from the the other legit outlets above.

The "NFL Europe Shop" and the main "Fanatics UK" site are just different "shop fronts" run by the same company using the same staff and with the same physical stock, mimicking the long-standing model used by Fanatics with the NFL shop and official Team Webstores in the US. Also be aware the proper Nike "silicon prints" may not be around too much longer - Fanatics did a deal with Nike in the 2018 off-season to manufacture Nike-branded jersies themselves, which will probably mean a move towards "printing to order" in the US as well (though it's not clear ATM what the print spec will be).

All of the other merch on the official NFL Europe shop and Fanatics UK sites and (including Nike "Limited" jersies) is fine - they're the original manufacturer items.

There are also a couple of Vintage/Retro clothing outlets that specialise in NFL / American Sports :-
- Expressions Clothing in York, "Bricks & Mortar" shop,
- NFL Vintage UK in London,
Much of the stock from these outlets is pre-owned, so you'll need to be careful if you don't want to accidentally end up with a "fake" that's slipped through the net...

In addition to the above, the following UK sites offer legit NFL clothing (no Jersies though)
- US Locker Room
- Sport Stock UK,
- EP Sports,
- Mitchell & Ness UK/Europe,
- Sainsburys,
- Topshop, (ladies leisurewear) - Note the search only appears to return "in-stock" items, the range as a whole seems to be much bigger - Google "topshop nfl" for additional items....
- New Era, (headwear. t-shirts)
- Victory Sports, (headwear, t-shirts, accessories). Formerly known as Capkandi.
- Shopstyle Portal, (links to a number of mainstream UK clothing outlets that occasionally have NFL items - but the tagging for the search is pretty bad, try alternatives such as team, city or clothing brand to locate many additional items).

RedZone UK, has a range of general American Football themed clothing and other merch (no licensed NFL team items though).

Football America (just N of Leicester), US Locker Room (Middlesbrough), Greaves Sports (Glasgow), New Era (Carnaby St and quite a few other London/UK locations), Victory Sports (Portsmouth), Topshop (selected outlets - see website) and USA Sports (Newcastle) have actual "bricks and mortar" premises you can visit as well.

Also there are legit bargains to be had on eBay - but a HUGE number of fake jersies / hats as well..

If you're happy to order direct from the US, you won't go far wrong with Fanatics (who also run the official US NFL shop, Fansedge, and most of the (real) official team webstores). All of the US-based "Fanatics" sites (,,,, Team webstores) now add the UK VAT @ checkout, so there is NOTHING extra to pay on delivery). Shipping cost can still be a killer though, but they always have some sort of sale or discount promotion on.......- and you get a small additional rolling discount (plus occasional bonuses) when you sign up for their loyalty scheme.

Fanatics bought out Kitbag (the previous operators of the NFL Europe shop) early in 2016, and now run it from their UK office in Manchester. The range in the official Europe shop has expanded a lot over the last couple of years, but there's a way to go yet.......

NOTE - A site calling itself the "Official NFL UK Shop" (or similar) is not a legit site. It's been shut down at least once, but keeps rearing its ugly head....
