For all our swimmers out there who have a passion for football, you are going to love the new line of swim caps from Funky Trunks. Even though all of us can’t be in Brazil to see the world’s best football teams face off, we still can show support for our favourite teams when in the pool. The only downside is you may catch a hard time from fellow swim mates if your team doesn’t do so well in Brazil in just under a couple of months.
Each cap features a soccer ball design to show you have football on the brain. They also have the nation’s name and colours along with a prominent Funky Trunks logo. And as usual, Funky Trunks caps are made with 100% silicone for a snug and long-lasting fit that will last you a long time after the 2014 FIFA World Cup is over.
