I'm just imagining the sequence of events that gets ‘football’ to mean ‘T-shirt’.

I'm sure it's like English when we say "baseball cap" or "tennis shoes". We might not be playing ball or tennis, but the sport is associated with the garment. T-shirt or jersey is something footballers wear on the pitch, so it seems like this is how they associated the name with it.

The last syllable in футболку is very soft and hard to hear
