Schools buying up Argentina jerseys

Bhadrakali Sports Shop must have recently made a massive order of fake Argentina kits. Looking at the pictures of the ANFA Coca-Cola School Tournament at NepalSportPhoto.com, it is surprising that so many schools are playing with Argentina national team jerseys. So much so, that a few times both schools were wearing the Argentina shirt, thus one school would have to put on bibs over their jerseys.

I am just curious as to why the schools are buying national team jerseys in the first place? Do these institutions not have their own school colors and badge? Are all the tailors in Nepal too busy to accept an order? To draw a parallel - would the schools allow their students to come to class wearing the uniforms of a top college that their students aspire of going to?
