There's no doubting the fact that when we need anything related to sports, we simply turn to Maidan Market. This market in Esplanade is also one of the largest wholesale sports goods markets in Asia.
While strolling inside the market (and being wowed by the sheer magnitude of the place), we came across A.H Sports, an all-in-one sports goods haven which is a dreamland for all sports lovers. You will at first be blinded and mesmerised by the barrage of team jerseys kept in front of you. And the shop owner Lucky is always happy to host you with a smiling face.
Want Barcelona's latest home kit? Check. Want Paris Saint-Germain's latest home kit? Check. And if you're too much of a Bagan or east Bengal loyalist, this shop gives you the option to shout out your support in public, with their unending collection of team jerseys. They manufacture a lot of the jerseys themselves, and we legit saw two foreigners buying Mohun Bagan jerseys right in front of us. Bargaining can give you a good deal (we're talking about as low as INR 299!).
Get football boots if you've started taking lessons recently. You can browse from a huge range of local colourful boots starting from INR 300. Parents can also visit this place if they want to pick up a pair for their kids. Don't worry if you want something and they have run out of stock, since they deliver all over Kolkata.
