Arsenal boast the Premier League's biggest replica shirt size available for fans, The Sun have reported. Gunners supporters, along with fans of Leicester and Stoke, can purchase jerseys up to a 6XL.
The maximum shirt size of London rivals Chelsea, XXL, is dwarfed by the biggest Arsenal top, which fans can buy for £55.
Sheffield Wednesday’s Tango Man Paul Gregory said: “A size 6XL wouldn’t be a tent on me, it would be a marquee.
“I’m only a 2XL, though I haven’t worn a shirt for 26 years. I say if you’ve got it flaunt it — who needs a top anyway.”
Ed Shirbon, a statistician for BT Sport, added: “It’s a statistic I welcome. These extra sizes might spare us the horror of straining nylon around middle-aged girths this season.”
Arsenal have claimed that their 6XL shirts are the equivalent of a 3XL or 4XL in other UK retailers.
A club spokesman said: “We look to provide a variety of sizes to ensure all supporters are catered for.”
Following closely behind Arsenal, Leicester and Stoke are Burnley and Southampton, who offer supporters a maximum size of 5XL.
There are a number of clubs that sell tops at 4XL and 3XL, while Chelsea are the only team that stop their range at 2XL.
