Hi there I live in Al Ain also and you can get them on the top floor of the Al Ain Shopping Mall, there is a little kiosk near the Early Learning Centre. They have lots of other little bits and pieces in purple and white there too. If you need any help give me a shout.

somebody at work told my husband that there was somewhere in the al ain mall and we had a look on saturday but could not find it. will have another look this weekend again maybe just missed it. Grateful for all the help. Difficult to take pressies home for 22 year olds! Daughter easy but both boys are a nightmare. 2nd son not into sports but computing and not fashion either so still stumped what to take him back! And they have birthdays in August too!!!

It could be that it isnt there anymore, I was just about to msn you. If you go to the very top floor its one of the little stalls before you go into the cinema. If it has gone you maybe try the Al Ain Sports Stadium near the Hilton where I live. Let me know if you cant find it and I will ask around for you.

He would be sick over that shirt. Strictly a celtic and man u supporter. But he does know about Al Ain football club. Ebay had one from a former al ain player who was in brazil i think (not my area really) and it was on for £250!!!!
He is a sports writer for the local paper (Turra Squeak) and hoping to be sports editor one day so collecting football shirts

Mrs flack is brazilian and when her mum came over she wanted to get an Al Ain shirt for her nephew, who was a fan of the guy at Al Ain from Brazil (I think he used to play for his team in Brazil). Turns out the mrs has a friend from her home town who is married to a brazilian player of another well known Dubai team. So she managed to get a signed shirt from Al Ain via him, because the brazilian players all know each other locally :)

Lucky really because she had real problems finding one in the shops here.

I am reliably informed by mrs F that her mum saw Al Ain shirts in Karama market after she'd got one from her friend. This was about 6 months ago, so no guarantees they still have them there but worth a try I reckon. Then again, its open air I think, so pretty hot to be wandering around. Some shops have aircon i think, so maybe try some of those.

I'd taken her to Dragon Mart a few days before but none of the sports shops there had Al Ain shirts, although some of them looked like the kind of places that might (lots of knocked off premiership shirts and the odd middle east club too).

Sorry for late reply. No internet for a couple of days. Went to Al Ain mall and found stall but only had a scarf or a furry top hat. Maybe they only sell the shirts in the football season. Thank you for all your help.
