Costco are not content with just importing a few body boards, ice hockey sticks and other bits to keep a small segment of Costco’s Australian membership in good quality sports gear at a great price. The buyers at Costco have now jumped in and gotten a deal that will keep Australian football fans happy.
You can get yourself a genuine Sherrin Match Australian football from Costco for $79.99. And this should even keep Dick Smith happy since it is a great deal on an Australian made product that uses Australian leather. Sherrin’s website indicate this ball is good for a game of kick-to-kick through to club level matches. However, this being Costco, you can only get red and they only have the full size ball (size 5).
Having a look around at competitors, Rebel Sport, Amart Sports and the Sherrin site itself list this football at $109.99. I thought I had found good price online at IDM Sports who have it for $93.50, but shipping to my locale in Melbourne adds $16.50 which brings it back to the same price as the bricks and mortar retailers.
