Because you will be doing a lot of running (and possibly falling), you will need a good uniform to prepare you for this and make you comfortable. A sleeved shirt and shorts are the standard uniform. Shin pads are also vital to protect you from any stray balls or kicks. For goalkeepers, a good pair of gloves and some tracksuit pants are also advisable.
With the focus of the game on your feet, a good quality fair of football boots and thick socks are a good investment. If you are just starting out you don’t need to break the bank, but decent footwear is still important. Your boots should have good traction underneath to help you with your running, skills and to prevent unnecessary falls.

And to wrap all your equipment up nicely, a large gym bag is the perfect buy to keep all your gear together and safe.
