The Terrace Club Subscription Box Review – Summer 2016
The Terrace Club is a box dedicated to soccer fans. Each quarter is themed around the happenings in the soccer world and filled with items that reflect that event.
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: The Terrace Club
The Cost: $75/Quarter
The Products: “Every quarter we will send out a box that plays off of something taking place within the sport, curated with goods that support the chosen theme. Some items will have a heavy dose of soccer inspiration, and others will be products that are produced by people and brands that support the sport. All the items are things that we love and that we want to introduce to you.”
Ships To: Worldwide
This box didn’t come with an info card or any further information on each item. This box was themed around Copa America and Team USA.
Bumpy Pitch FC Shirt – Value $30
This was my favorite item in the box. This shirt is themed after the 1994 Team USA kit:
It has all the stars to match! This was one of the few times that Team USA made it out of the group stages of the world cup – so it holds a place in the hearts of US National Team fans.
American Outlaws Supporters Scarf – Value $15-20?
The American Outlaws are the Team USA supporters group and this is one of their scarfs. If you’re unfamiliar with the sports and fandom, scarfs are widely worn by supporters and held above your head to show support from the stands. I almost felt obligated to explain that since no major sport that’s popular in the US does that!
SR4U Laces – Value $6.99
These are 100% polyester soccer shoe replacement laces. These are also style after team USA.
Three 25 Coffe: Copa Blend – $2.50 (based on 10oz bag)
They include a Copa blend to get you ready for Copa America just around the corner.
Soccer Everything Espresso Mug(s) – Value $10-15?
They included two (one of mine came shattered) little espresso mugs (I’m guessing). These were bubbled wrapped, but one slipped out in shipping.
Sock Smith USA Socks – Value $10
Next up are these American Flag branded socks from Sock Smith. I really like the quality of these socks – and since subscription boxes have got me into collecting graphic socks – these were a win!
Here’s a look at each sock – they’re not matching, instead, you get stars and stripes.
100 Pin – Value $12
Can anyone tell me what this has to do with Copa America or Team USA? I very interested!
Soccer Motivational Print – Value $10?
This was the biggest miss of the box for me. I’m definitely not the demographic for this type of print about soccer.
To finish it off, it came with a free month of MLS Live and a sticker.
Verdict: Liz surprised me with this box because I’m a Liverpool FC supporter, but this missed the mark, and I mean it skyed the free kick. I don’t closely follow the US Men’s or Women’s Teams, MLS, or most North American soccer – I mainly follow European soccer – so the theme was strike one for me. Luckily, you can see the theme of the quarter before subscribing, so you’ll want to make sure it’s in your wheelhouse. $75 was a steep cost, and while the values of the items add up to over the cost of the box, it still felt like it was missing a hero item. I’ve always wanted a good soccer or hockey box, but I feel like it has to be team specific to really hold value to the subscriber, and that’s where this falls short for me.
