Guangzhou Customs detected 4,370 different types of shoddy goods, including footballs bearing the FIFA World Cup logo and jerseys with Adidas or Nike trademarks, in a delivery bound for Tanzania in April.

The case led officers to more fake products, including jerseys and shirts bearing FIFA, Dsquared and Polo Ralph Lauren logos, according to a statement from Guangzhou Customs.

Huangpu Customs detected 4,500 jerseys intended for export to Malaysia by a company in Nanchang, Jiangxi province at Huangpu port in Guangzhou, Guangdong province.

The jerseys, wrapped in plastic bags and hidden behind 30,000 plain black label-free jerseys in a container, bear FIFA World Cup Russia logos and Adidas labels.

All the jerseys were of low quality, with shabby packaging and poorly printed labels.
