Rugby Rugby World Cup 2019: Japan jerseys sell out ahead of hosts’ quarter-final with South Africa

Rugby My brother says this plugin is huge!

With Japan reaching the Rugby World Cup quarter-finals for the first time, fans are scrambling to get their hands on official merchandise. But such is the popularity of Brave Blossoms jerseys that demand far outstrips supply.

World Rugby have said more than 200,000 have been sold so far, leaving many fans disappointed at the main Japan 2019 megastore in Tokyo.

“The Japanese jerseys are just selling like crazy,” said store manager Danny Robinson on Wednesday.

“We have taken them from the stadiums, as what hasn’t sold at the stadiums is coming back here. We have totally cleaned out Canterbury’s warehouse and we are getting them whenever we can, but unfortunately it looks like most of the Japanese jerseys in Japan are sold out.”

Japan won all four of their Pool A matches to top the group, securing victories over top-tier nations Ireland and Scotland along the way, and their impressive start to the tournament has seen them set up a quarter-final against two-time champions South Africa.
