The store caters for supporters and fans of football, particularly those who are support the top football teams in the world and will sell all clothing and paraphernalia from teams which participate in the Champions League.

Warner congratulated brothers, Mikhail and Mario Singh, the two young men behind the store.

Fr Joe Harris, parish priest for the St Ann’s RC community blessed the store as part of the occasion.
